Windows 7 & Windows XP Pro.
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.
Windows 7 64-bit
I'm currently running the Windows 7 64-bit OS on both my laptop & desktop.
Windows 7 Ultimate
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!
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 and not by choice but I do have to admit I like it, seems very stable!
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.
