Homemade desktop - XP Home
Dell Dimension from 2001 - XP Home
Dell Latitude Laptop - 2000 Pro

The Dell Dimension used to have Windows Millennium (aka WinME, PCWorld's number 4 in the Top 25 Worst Tech products of all time) and had a slew of problems... my god the problems. But none of the others have had any OS problems.

I remember upgrading the Dell Dimension to XP so I could run Illustrator CS2 on it, and being kinda annoyed, but I'm so glad I was forced to because its been nothing but smooth sailing ever since.

2000 Server on my file server
XP Pro on two PCs
and Vista Premium on the laptop I bought recently.

I've had a couple of machines with Linux on them as well, but none currently.
