    OS Showdown - What are people actually running.

    Just thought that it would be interesting to do a poll to see what people are actually running on their networks as a base client OS.

    All desktops and staff laptops are XP Pro SP3, apart from the Head of ICT who is running Vista and my admin desktop running Win7/XP Pro dual boot... although have to say it very very rarely gets booted to XP.

    All Desktops/Laptops are XP SP3. Apart from my PC which tri-boots XP/Win7/Ubuntu.
    Servers run either Win2k3/2k8 or Ubuntu 6.06LTS/8.04LTS.

    Half XP SP3 and half MAC

    Haven't had the time to test out Win7 - no timetable on roll-out.

    Top person here also on Vista.

    XPSP3 on clients, 2k8 on servers. Couple of Linux boxes, my machine & laptop running W7. Will roll out W7 on new hardware if it stays stable once it RTMs.

    XP SP3 on all worktations, 2003 on servers.

    Avoiding vista, and going straight to windows 7 once we happy is stable (so SP1 probably). Currenty planning a migration to server 2008 in summer.

    I put vista on my machine to test once SP1 came out, suprisingly we not gonna touch vista....!!

    New Music Director wants 50 mac's im planning to shoot him......
