Windows 7 is great no problems and runs fine, XP still a good OS but getting old, Vista well that's just a really **** OS IMO.

My laptop runs on Windows 7. My Desktop runs on Windows XP.

Legacy applcations work best with XP. And trust me I use really weird legacy applications

Vista was a nice idea being preinstalled with my laptop but Windows 7 did a far better job.

My two cents worth
