No option for dual boots? :(

I dual boot Vista Home Premium 64 and XP 32. I spend most of my time in Vista though because I'm trying to give it another fair shot and so far I'm liking it a lot more after a hardware upgrade and the addition of SP1. But I still fall back to XP for a few bits and pieces that don't work for me in Vista.

:withstupid: I dual boot Vista Ultimate 32bit as my main os and XP Pro as my secondary os.

Win2k in work, and Vista Home Premium 32 bit at home.

I like Vista's eye candy and the fact that I've had NO problems with drivers ever, but I also like how lightweight and fast Win2K can be, even on minimal hardware.

Linux all the way (Except for my test beds which run 32-Bit Vista Ultimate)

For Linux I use Red Hat Enterprise and Slackware.
