Vista.

I would use 7, but since my license is OEM and I intend to replace this computer almost in it's entirety (only keeping DVD reader and chassis) I've held up on the upgrade in anticipation of the new computer. So I guess my "fact" is not the same as my "intention/wish" in this case.

Doesn't belong in this thread, but let me know if you are interested in debating that in a separate thread down in Hardware or something.

W7/64

Some niggly problems with UAC and administrator rights (not just W7) but once they're set, you're good as gold.

I'd go so far as to say that W7 > XP now for gaming. Well in today's day and age seeing as XP is no longer supported. But if you compare the two in their prime, I personally think W7 is easier to game with.

Win7 32 bit. My mobo is 32 bit only so I'm stuck until I get a new system.
