a lot of it is personal preference. I personally, have XP on my laptop and vista ultimate on my desktop, and don't plan on upgrading either anytime soon. Im happy with XP on the laptop, and its really not powerful enough to run anything newer without at least a memory upgrade, and I like it anyway. with vista, ive worked for like 2 years getting all the bugs out of the system, I dont particularly want to start over with a whole new operating system with new bugs (i dont care what they say, windows 7 is bound to have new bugs) and Ive played a little with windows 7, and yes its better then vista, but not enough to be worth 200 bucks to me at this point, so I will probably wait a few months at least until they release a service pack or 2. Call me old fashioned. but ya, its really up to you. personally, If I had all 3, and I wanted to upgrade, I would skip vista and go straight to 7, but on the other hand, XP is a proven OS. :D
