8.04*

I'm running XP Pro and Ubuntu 7.10 x64. Had the Ubuntu 8.04 beta until the A-Data RAM came in, but the x86 and x64 both had severe stability issues after installing the RAM. The betas wouldn't run for more than... oh... 20 seconds without a hard lockup.

Before the RAM upgrade, I never had 1 lockup from the beta. Kinda strange. (Memtest and Orthos both pass with flying colors)

On my sig rig, I will be doing a dual boot between XP Pro x86 and Vista Ultimate x64. I just installed Vista, so I am keeping XP for now, but plan on trying to go with Vista completly. Each copy is on it's own HDD.

On my laptop I am running XP Pro and Ubuntu. I am giving Linux another try, and so far on my laptop, it is OK. I use XP for specfic programs I already have, but I find myself using Ubuntu more and more for day to day surfing, e-mail and minor office stuff.
This is on a single partitioned drive.

I have XPSP2 Home 32 and Vista Home Prem. 32 Both set up dual patition Raid0. I split the raid in half then installed XP on one and Vista on the other. For security I have a 160 with a mirror of both also partioned. Heck I tried it to see if it worked ...and it did.lol

Vista Ultimate x64 and Debian x64 on my desktop, Vista x86 and Debian x64 on my notebook, lots and lots of virtual machines running on my servers if they count, the host OS on them is VMware ESX 3.5 though and that obviously isn't dual booted
