RHEL at school
Anything debian based
Anything I can download an ISO for (legally)
If I could get a new laptop, I'd try dual boot with PC-BSD as the main OS.

XP and Vista at Home
And Windows Me and Win2k as Virtual Machines to test "programs" on.
I am still using XP a lot, because everything is installed and working perfectly fine, so I just can't be bothered to transfer everything to Vista (yet)

XP Pro on my other machine, which have a workstation setup.
XP Home on a old PC standing in my home office, that my kids use when they "work with dad"
Have seriously considered skipping Windows altogether, and go Linux.

So turn it off then....?
but UAC annoys the [bleep] out of me.
Well yes there is that I suppose but UAC is not the only thing that annoys me about Vista. On some of the machines we have at work almost a full GB of RAM is used before you even open any applications.

Quiz Master you asked a very good question
I have Windows xp home edition , iam more familular with 98 ( as i was bought up with it )

your work computers need some tweaking , and maintenance wounldn't hurt....
iam only running 2GB DDR ( only double data rate atm ( 2x1GB memory modules ) ) and that does me:) but not with only 1gb to spare lol
PS: i personally dont like vista .... everyone is different , only for the fact of all the permission prompts ( only minute complaint... ) however i guess these days technology moving so fast , you have to try and keep up and weight up the pro's and con's...

Currently all the PC's I use are running Windows XP Pro - but I have a lonely old PC in the kids' old room in the basement (they went and grew up and moved away) that is still running Win98 - it's almost never on now, but it is still on my LAN in case one of the kids stays over. Sometimes I feel sorry for it and run down and fire it up to update the AV and such . . .
