Submission + - Best OS to ship with custom built systems

msheekhah writes: "My partner and I are gearing up to sell our own custom boxes. While the high-end gaming boxes are definitely going to be Windows based, I'm wondering in terms of end users that aren't into high end games, what would be the better approach? Windows Vista with KDE (can it replace explorer?) WIndows XP (w/ or /wo) or Ubuntu running CrossOver or another WINE library implementation? We're looking to deliver superior performance, low cost, and ease of use. What are your thoughts for a consumer market? We've been playing around with the options, but I would really like to draw from your combined experience."
