I'm curious to see what are people here using for operating systems, and what they plan to be using in a year.

I'm using Windows XP MCE 05 now and have Vista 32 Premium on the way, I'm not sure what I'll do with the Vista 32 (install it right away/wait a bit/ install it on a second drive) but I do reckon that in a year I will be making the switch to 64.

Laptop: Windows XP Pro
Home PC #1: Windows XP Home
Home PC #2: Windows XP Home
Work PCs (20 of them): Windows XP Pro

Vista = Disaster for professional oriented computers. Period.

Which will I be using next year: I don't plan on changing.

I'll be switching over to linux as soon as I can get a few hard drives to backup my drives onto another as linux doesn't like NTFS.

Vista is still a waste of time as far as I am concerned... just no real reason to upgrade. I've had so many problems, I try to avoid using it entirely. In a year I am hoping it will be a LOT better.

XP home X3

XP MCE on the new HP (Dual boot with Suse, but I still haven't had much chance to play with it yet)

XP pro on the laptop

I can't see upgrading to Vista any time soon. Not only does it not really offer me anything I'm looking for, I'm a bit leery of the stronger DRM it's not yet using, but which is coded and just waiting for content providers to enable.
