While the new OS's offer new features, they tend to have also new issues. On forums we've read of many issues with drivers and software compatibility issues. However, it's been a while since Windows 7 came out so one might assume that most issues were tackeld by both Microsoft, software and hardware vendors.
So I'm wondering: which OS are you currently using ?

I think you should have split Vista and Windows 7, as well as the 32 and 64 bits versions as these are very important distinctions.

I'm using Win 7 64 bit on my main DAW and OS-X on my Macbook Pro for Live performances. Both are performing VERY well.

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit on both my Compaq Presario PC and my Cyber Power Apevia PC.Windows 7 is not as stable on my Compaq,as it is with my Cyberpower PC.
For example,if I put my Compaq PC into sleep-mode and then power back up,the whole system goes haywire and I have to restart the computer,whereas with my Cyberpower PC,I can permanently leave it in sleep-mode,without ever having to shut it down(unless I need to perform an update).

Not much choice, in this corner, I'm afraid.
Win XP Sp3.

Had this PC since May 2005. I had it built as primarily a music machine but it has also had to put up with every other type of application imaginable. It is chock full of so much stuff that I often wonder how it still goes on.

I see no way in which I could upgrade, financially, so the thoughts of changing the OS do not even enter my head. I have no problems at all with the way it behaves ... apart from it being a bit slower than a 'modern' one would be .... but the old saying 'what you haven't had you don't miss' certainly applies.

I've been running a specialised version of 64 bit debian since about the same time on my dedicated music machine. Never had any software problems over the years, but a couple of hardware ones (that battery for instance!). I do however plug it into the 'net for software updates occasionally.

All my other machines are based on 32bit debian, but different flavours for different jobs.

PureDyne 64 bit on my Athlon computer, PureDyne 32 bit on my Pentium computer, and Puredyne 32 bit on a USB stick to run my little Asus eeePC.
I have several other Linux operating systems on optical disc that run a computer from its DVD drive for special-purpose use.
