Im going to be reinstalling my os soon and was wondering what my best option would be. Im gonna dual boot a version of vista and xp, I would tri boot with ubuntu but I have raid problems with that . I thought a poll would help me and others.

So this poll focuses on versions of windows but some *nix is in there too.

Share your favorite os and tell us why it's your favorite.

Yeah, where's the poll?


Anyway, my vote is Vista Ultimate 64 and XP Pro 32. The reason for XP32 is so that it remains compatible with older stuff, JUST in case.

If I could LEGALLY, I'd be using OS X on my PC. Otherwise it's Vista x64 all the way.

Sometimes, we post too fast for the OP to do anything, .

I have switched from XP to Vista SP1. I found Vista to be a lot faster than XP (only if SP1 is installed, ONLY!). I have also scored higher 3DMark06 scores on Vista > XP.
