Ok I personally like 7 so thats not bad, Sabayon is my main linux distro, fedora is ok but why do you still have vista on your desktop? Most horrible os in existence XD.

^ no way, the most horrible OS ever is Windows Millennium Edition.
Thankfully it is no more in existence (at least it is not still supported), but, to my surprise, I still see it installed sometimes :shock:

My personal laptop (Sony F) have Sabayon 64bit KDE (main of course! :wink: ), Chakra, openSUSE, another testing partition and Win7
My netbook (Fujitsu amilo) have Linux Mint Debian [becouse was the only distribution with ubuntu in that ad-hoc shared connections works out of the box now), Sabayon KDE is on a secondary partition.
My wife's laptop (Sony CW) have Linux Mint KDE LTS, for some peace, but she asked for Sabayon :roll: .

My favorites? Only rolling release with KDE by default!
The Freedom Technologies Are Available!
I love KDE rolling release distributions that just works!

Main PC is Sabayon x86 with a Vista partition that is very rarely used.

Laptop is Sabayon x86 with a Vista partition (also very rarely used) and Ubuntu 11.04 (to see what the complaints were about).

Home made box is Sabayon 64bit with a Windows 7 partition used for colour printing and slide scanning.

An old Rock sub-notebook with Windows 7 (the DVD player won't read a CD and the wireless won't work with any of the Linux distros I've tried) It's just for showing pictures.

My girlfriend inherited my last main PC which has Sabayon 64bit with an XP partition (that she never uses).

Main PC - laptop: Sabayon KDE amd64 + Limbo (90% of my time: everyday usage), WIn7 x86 (7% of my time: when I need good/easy screencasting), Funtoo (2,5% of my time: crazy stuffs and experiments), Ubuntu x86 (0,5% of my time: just for keep in touch with Canonical latest projects like Unity, Plymouth, ecc...)
