Wow I'm surprised the popularity of vista. That makes me reconsider actually using it. But I picked xp 32bit just because since my system is old I have no need to get 64bit and sp2 because I made a special stripped copy for myself with a legit copy I have.

That being said, I have never used any Linux-based OS so I cant really compare. That's something I gotta fix soon....
Yeah, I think the majority of people who actually try it with decent hardware will like Vista better than XP. I know I feel crippled going back to my XP dual core laptop with 2 gigs of memory after using my home computer. MUCH better performance and the search features I would die to have in XP. It would seriously save me tons of time.

As far as Linux goes... it's fun to play with, but don't expect it to ever be able to 100% replace Windows unless you're talking servers.
