Windows 2012, so I voted Windows 8. It's the ultimate in efficiency and productivity so why not.

The people who have voted might be different from the people who have commented.

 

Interesting the level of hate comments that people have for 8, yet it leads the poll... is it that people that hate 8 don't vote, or that they are a vocal minority, or is it that they hate it, but secretly use it.

 

Or maybe I am reading too much into stuff.

Windows 8 on all 3 PCs, I see no need to downgrade to XP or Win 7

 

Use 7 in my work PC and have to  support XP and 7, it's painful to deal with XP anymore and 7 is also getting on my nerves

 

Going to try and get work to let me in on the Windows 8.1 testing that's been going on but doubt they'll they'll let lowly support rep in at the moment :(

Windows 8.1 on all 3 laptops and also Windows Server 2012 R2 (virtual machines) plus a few Windows 7 virtual machines for legacy projects. Each time I use one of these it boggles my mind why people complain so much about the ancient start menu - I would trade that any day just for the right-click power user menu alone.

Windows 2012, so I voted Windows 8. It's the ultimate in efficiency and productivity so why not.

Windows 8.1 Pro x64 RTM (primary), but have 2012R2 (secondary), OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (tertiary), and OS X 10.9 (Mavericks GM/quaternary) in reserve. (Note that all are x64.)

 

Once I get a "proper" CPU and mobo, I'll next be working on GPU/HDD upgrades for all the non-primary OSes (any GPU choice must be supported by all four).  Only some AMD and nVidia GPUs meet THAT criteria - still even that list only leaves out the extreme low end.

I have 8 on my main desktop waiting for 8.1 GA, have 8.1 preview on my tablet also waiting to be upgraded to RTM on the 18th.  I have an old HP netbook with Win7 but I gave that to my mom to use so it'll stay as it is.  Also an old Vista PC that I use from time to time but not enough to justify paying to upgrade it to 8.1.  If MS had ran another $40 promo for 8.1 like they did for 8.0 I would think about it though.

At home Windows 8

 

At work mainly Windows 7, but also Windows XP.  A few server OS's as well, but don't really "use" them, they are just running.
