Windows 7, with a possible consideration of moving to 8 once the drivers are stabilised a bit more (with a start screen bypass)

Another year of Ubuntu for me. Get the enjoyment of playing some games through Steam in 2013 as well :D

guys, give Windows 8 a dang chance. You will get used to it if you've tried it for a bit. You can't say something is terrible till you tried it for a bit.

Main system is staying with 7 a bit longer, not in any rush. "It just works" is a big factor for me, and 7 has to be the most reliable desktop OS I've ever used.. I do like 8 but giving it a bit more time to cook.

Rest of the house is a mix of 7, 8, and BSD. Couple VM's with various Linux distros, never been a fan. One Hackintosh just for giggles, but rarely use it. Oh and one craplet (ye olde Q1 UMPC) that's stuck with XP due to drivers.

At home mine will be Mountain Lion.
As for work it will probably be split between Server 2008R2 and Server 2012 :)

Windows 8 for both my office and home PC's.
Windows7 was fantastic but after using 8 for the past couple of months, 7 just seems so old fashioned when I use it on one of my laptops so I could never go back.
