Which operating system do you use? Or are you using more than one? Tell me.

I'm using Ubuntu, Windows XP and OpenSuSE (and sometimes Knoppix if needed)

I use Fedora, WIN 7, WIN XP and other variations of Linux. Wait, is this a "What have you used?" or "What DO you use?"
Because technically I've used all of them.

Does Vista have the window shaking thing? Where you grab a window, shake it, and all other windows go away?

I currently use windows 7 with my new laptop, but before I used opensuse. It feels so much safer using opensuse, though...maybe its a mental thing. If my laptop runs into a virus, its back to reloding opensuse.

Windows XP!
This computer wouldn't be able to run 7 :(

Although, when I get another computer case, I'll put Windows 7 on (Because I'll be using a newer motherboard, with better components ;) )

I have used OpenSolaris before, just with a 40GB HDD, it's not much space to have 2 OS on it.
(And USB 1.1 ports means no loading an OS from USB - would be too slow ;) )

I'm using Windows Vista Home Basic. It's like having a knock-off of Home Premium. Ugh. If I could, I would upgrade to home premium. Then I get the really cool Windows Aero interface. And Mike, no it does not have the shaking thing. I just tried. Any other questions? (no, I am not being sarcastic.)

Desktop: Vista Ultimate 64
Laptop: Window 7 Starter & Ubuntu 10.4

I'd love to switch to Linux altogether, Window 7 Starter is a Joke, I've tried to go all Linux before, but alas, There is always that one or two programs that prevent the switch... Currently Daz|Studio and Engine 001.

Maybe Engine001 will be compatible with Linux soon. Also, I could imagine that Engine001 might work on Linux by using Cedega. Cedega is a WINE extension to run Applications that use or require DirectX. I haven't used it yet, but I think when my knowledge in Linux is much better than now, I might buy Cedega (yep, you have to buy it. It's one of the few things for Linux that is not for free).

I think normal wine should work too. I've seen somewhere PlayOnLinux package for engine 001, dunno if it's in official POL repo, but native version would be better (SDL would be good for what engine001 is + some calls to OGL for shaders and lighting things). I really like that kind of software (for gamemaking), but there is only few of them on Linux.

Uhm? Microsoft gives away Visual Studio Express, which is beyond amazing. Microsoft has tons of free software that comes with Windows. Plain MSDN is a free resource, that is incredibly valuable. DirectX is the best graphics API. C'mon now.
