I tested for Vista and 7. After those beta programs ended I went straight back to XP. Compared to Vista and 7 (can't speak for 8) it's very lightweight and can install on just about anything out there.

The biggest issue now is finding drivers for newer laptops, especially for the audio.

I have a laptop that I loaded Debian onto it for watching some AVI files and other small things. The software available always seems to be a compromise with Linux though. That's the main reason I can't just straight up switch over from Windows yet.

However, I would love to the day that it's possible.
