Vista x64 home basic
Main PC -Dual boot -Vista Ultimate x86 and XP Pro x86
Old PC -XP Pro x86
Older PC -Ubuntu
New build will be running Vista x64
Desktop - Windows XP Professional SP2
Laptop - Windows Vista x86 HomePremium SP1
Vista 64bit Home Premium SP1 - been absolutley solid, the only thing thats has upset it has been over ambitious OCing attempts and the buggy hell that is Stalker:Clear Sky.
Vista Home Premium 32 bit with SP1.
(Some older games will not run with 64bit Vista)
right now im booted into xp pro, i have vista, but only really use it for dx10 games since the 'ooh' factor wore off
Vista Business x86 (really wish i had x64) :shadedshu
Vista Home Premium on a desktop.
Ubuntu 8.04 on a server.
xp pro 32bit sp3
Vista HP 64 on main rig, Win2k on Laptop as its not strong enough to run XP, and openSUSE 11 for checking it out on another rig
Just recently upgraded from Vista Ultimate x86 to Vista Ultimate x64 (@ SP1).
32 bit was rock solid for me. Updated to utilize more RAM.
I have to say the doubling the amount of RAM and going to 64 bit has made my rig much more responsive when I have a lot of apps open simultaneously.
Xp X64 mainly, i use 2 copys of Vista Ultimate but thats becouse they were free other wise i be waiting for Win 7 and how that turns out.
Actually 64 bit is still x86. Though commonly people refer to 64 bit as x64 and 32 bit as x86.
I use Server 2008 64 bit on most systems. XP Pro 32 bit on my laptop. New server will be running ESXi.
There are plenty more options though, I used to have a BeOS machine for example. Never really got into Zeta. Once Ecomstation supports more modern hardware I might be using that again as well.
Vista Ultimate 32, my wireless doesn't work in 64. I also have XP 32 installed.
Needs to be multiple choice. I dual boot XP and Vista Ultimate x86 on my Laptop, and I run XP on my desktop
I am in the boat with ShadowFold about not liking the x64.
My Zoom wireless adapter doesnt work with 64 bit either. Upon asking them [zoom] why, i was sent a product link to their latest model -.-
Vista ultimate 32.
Hmm. Server editions were not a choice. Bummer. Running Server 2008 as primary, but XP on stand-by an other HD.
It seems that the wireless issues with Vx64 are related to drivers and not to the OS.
That's really pretty poor on their part. They could have at least given you a reason why they could not make specific models compatible with Vx64. Sounds to me like they are just not willinig to update the drivers for the older models.
using Vista because that is what i had installed on the LOL rig and am too lazy to dual boot with XP
XP SP2 on the gaming rig
Vista 32 Home Premium
Yellow Dog Linux on the PS3
Exactly. Why make new drivers when they can make another adapter to milk their customers even more? :shadedshu

It's your mobo that's holding you back from OS X. OXx86 just doesn't like Asus boards for some reason. To get it to run on mine, I actually had to pass a kernel argument to OS X to run on only 1 core. It just won't work with more than that. And once I did get it up and running, it just wasn't stable, with random freezing.
If a Hackiontosh is something you want to get serious about, pick up a Gigabyte P35(or newer) board. they work the best. I'm actually trying to find someone to swap my Maximus for an X38 DQ6.
Main: Windows Vista Home Premium
Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy
