I have Vista and can't complain. Nor can I rave.

Wow, I guess that's on 5 different computers. Is that like driving 5 different cars, or more like a car, motorcycle, hang glider, hovercraft, etc.?

well

I answered XP because that's what I have on my main home computer (the one I'm using now) and at work.

However, I have a laptop at home that is VISTA.

OSX: Must have specially Mac games, i am not buying the same game twice (if i get any retribution from Chris or Gren about Republic commando....) therefore OSX fails in my books.

yeah, I LOVE Leopard. The only problem is that I installed iLife 08'
BIG MISTAKE
It sacrifices features for easier usability

On my previous computer, my dad had Linux AND Windows on the same computer! It worked fine though...

Windows is like riding a go-cart with one wheel missing, Linux is like riding a bicycle with medium sized leaden weights dragging on the ground behind you!

I want to try Macbook next time, but I don't know anyone who actually uses Apple for their home PC or laptop. Seems the cost of them makes most stick to Microsoft.
Pretty much my assesment as well.
