Which version of Windows do you use?
SImple question, vote and tell me why...

Windows 7 & 8. We upgraded everything to 7 a few years ago, it was needed for obvious reasons. We have Windows 8 on a few machines and staff can use it very soon, we feel that people should have the choice. We are also looking at Windows tablets so Windows 8 would be an obvious choice for them.
There are a good number of people still on Windows XP only and i really don't know why people are not cracking on and upgrading.

At school Win 7. Last XP just retired. No touch screens for Win 8. Although that might change soon.
At home all Win 7. Reason = budget

Win 7 throughout. I had the pleasure funnily enough today helping a member of staff with their own Win 8 notebook which they couldn't stand. I ended up installing Classic Shell so they can actually use it to their liking!
Edit: Now that Microsoft have released KB2775511 which is essentially a Windows 7 SP2 Rollup it'll strengthen the platform even more

I am at a customer site now working on an NT 4.0 workstation used to run a Sheetmetal press.
Outside of this I see 2000 through 8 and OSX.

In my office we are using windows 7. I'm looking at maybe going to windows 8 on my office pc. We have got windows 8 tablets for the support engineers. I'm loving using the tablet with windows 8.

Soon the whole college will be running windows 7. With touch screen devices running windows 8.
