    Let's see:

    Firewall - FreeBSD
    NAS - FreeBSD
    Routers - different Debian forks
    PCs - Run Ubuntu (Debian), Win2k, WinXP, Win7, Vista, WinME (I let it play in the DMZ every now and then).

    My custom built desktop and HP laptop both run x86-64 Arch Linux. If I need to run a Windows app, I have a VirtualBox image of Windows XP Pro SP3 on both machines.

    The desktop has three hard drives; two 160 GB WDs and a TB drive I use for my "home" partition. I dual boot between the two 160s. I have Arch installed on the first one and Windows XP Pro SP3 on the second one. I use the Windows drive for gaming.

    I currently use Windows XP Pro on one and Linux on one with a partition sharing it with Linux on my third computer. I need a laptop! :D
    Both work very well.

    Windows 7 as it now is replacing XP in all of my computers. Most stable version of Windows yet. Allmost like Mac... ;-)

    Windows 7 64 bit

    Using a Flex Radio requires a stable computer and have found Windows 7 to be the most stable of all. Of course background programs are not allowed to run such as updates etc. When logging, I have found having the XML lookup feature on QRZ to be necessary since it pops up so fast as soon as entering the last letter of a call.

    Windows 7 Premium

    Having a software defined radio, the Flex 5000A, it is necessary to have a stable operating system with plenty of RAM. The newer Windows 7 systems using 64 bit processors and 6 GM RAM is the ultimate with never a glitch or latency problem.
