I don't know about Vista, but I installed Ubuntu Linux (keeping my WinXP installation in dual boot) a couple of weeks ago. I just use winXP to play games now. Ubuntu runs so much smoother and it's a great improvent in looks compared to XP. And also I can run winXP in a virtual machine inside Linux (no 3d accel tough).
Vista looks nice but it runs incredibly slow for what it offers (I think I deleted it after 2 days of using it).
I really like Mac OS X and how well it's designed, but for me it's not worth the extra cost of buying a mac.
