Big mix.. some 8, some 7, and one dinosaur tablet with XP, plus a couple in the other/non-Windows category (a couple of Windows servers, along with a hackintosh and one or two Linux desktops but they don't get used much).  This one I'm on now is 7, voted that.

Windows 8 on my Mac Pro

Windows 7* on my Retina Macbook Pro

 

* The only reason I put Windows 7 on there was because Fraps + Windows 8 + Minecraft do not work well together.  I put Windows 7 on my laptop for recording Minecraft gameplay, but I decided to get dxtory instead and it runs fine on Windows 8.  So basically, I will eventually upgrade to Windows 8 on my laptop :)

I have 7 on all my PCs.  Tried 8 for a few months, and didn't care for it, so I won't be upgrading unless I'm forced to.

8.1 on five machines @ home and about ten systems at work.  Pretty happy with it really.

 

We keep some 7 boxes around for testing but nobody with 8.1 wants to go back.

Windows 7 after doing a PhD in migration from XP for many painful years after which almost all issues were solved with great difficulty and third party alternatives except for the forced auto sorting issue in Explorer. Still have XP on at least one machine with no intention of ever giving on it (some specific needs such as old games which can't be virtualized).

 

Windows 8/8.1 too for Classic Shell development and fixing lots of unbearable s**t.

I'm using W7 Ultimate and have no intentions of changing. Looking forward to what MS brings to the table after W8. 

Nobody using Longhorn, what ?  And I see a lone wolf out there still running with that bloated Vista.
