Well I swore I would never leave XP.. but I bought a new computer after Thanksgiving because I couldn't pass up the deal. It came loaded with Windows 7.. My youngest daughter's computer came with Vista and I swear to myself every time I touch the Vista machine because of the problems Dwayne and Gary mention. (something is always broken or is not compatible) I dreaded firing up the Win 7 machine but it has been an absolute dream. It ported EVERYTHING to from the old machine to the new one without an issue (I had to manually reinstall the programs but it transferred all the setting for them and told me which programs needed to be reinstalled. So far I have not found one issue with my Windows 7 box (and I am a computer geek) ... so to say I am happily surprised would be an understatement.
