I prefer Windows 7 mainly because of WDDM 1.1 support. [Better media support]

I'm considering switching from XP to 7 because apparently 7 has good multicore support, and I have 8 cores if you include hyperthreading :cool:

I'm running XP SP2 right now. Duo core only so I have no need for anything better.
One of these days, Ima try Linux.

I might get a lot of flak for this, but I think right now, Vista is the most stable Windows OS.
Not Seven because it's too new. It still has a couple bugs which Vista used to have but have been fixed.
Not XP because it's too old and running it is pretty much a security flaw in it's own. Yes, after six years and three servicepacks, the come-and-hack-me piece of shit XP was when it came out at first (does anybody actually remember what it was like to run XP before the first service pack? SLOOOOW, buggy, weekly blue screen of death) had evolved into a pretty decent OS. But I never liked it, and I never liked the default XP theme either.
Vista had a couple major flaws at first, but since it's second servicepack, it kicks the butt of XP in every way, except for hardware with less than 2 gigs of RAM. Current Vista is actually a good OS if you take the time to learn how to use it. I've been running it for three years now, and my last format was a year ago (and was because I was fucking my partitions up, not because of Vista) and my computer still runs silky smooth.
Nonetheless, if you're buying a new computer / Windows license, there's no doubt you should buy Seven. At the moment it's a little less stable than Vista, but Seven is the future. But if you're running Vista, there's no need to upgrade just to get a stable OS, learning how to configure Vista properly will do.

Believe it or not, I agree with you. I think it is hit or miss sometimes with different hardware, though. My laptop runs great with it, and yet I've never been able to get it running decently, and it is more powerful on paper than my laptop.

what do you think a good distro to try out would be i tried ubuntu and it was all right though it seemed a little dumbed down for a lack of better words and then i tried damn small linux which ran fast as fuck no matter how many things i ran but was ugly and unpractical. I'm considering make a 5 gb partion in my computer for linux to try it out a little more so then just a live cd

There's really no reason to upgrade to 7 if you've got Vista. It's mind-boggling how many people heap praise on 7 after writing Vista off, considering how little has really changed.

Don't agree to be honest. There's no reason not to upgrade I would say since everything Vista can do 7 does better. Plus I haven't had a single BSOD since I installed Windows 7 7/8 months ago.
