Don't get me even STARTED on Vista as I can't stand it.

I will use Win XP until I can't and then by that time V7 will be out in 2009.

Overall I like Vista, I have it on two machines and it runs well.

I doubt I'd actually buy it though, the reason those machines have Vista is they both came preloaded with Home Premium.

I'm still using Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on my main desktop. When I upgrade I'll likely stick with that, since there are some games and other software I use which still isn't compatible with Vista and I don't feel like messing around with Anti-WGA and the like.

Isn't it just called "7"? Thats what I read at least.

I use Vista for the most part I guess, some things I still go back to XP for though. The best way is to get your hands on a Vista DVD and install it without entering a key. You can then pick which version to install and basically have a "trial" for 30 days I believe, maybe it was 14 days. Can't really remember.
