Main os is Mac OS-X Lion (1 desktop and two laptops)
All the macs have VMWARE Fusion Virtual Machines that run XP and Wins 7 (depending on what I need to do)
Very Old Laptop HP - running XP - I'm a new ham and will start to use this for digital HF modes and other ham software
Old desktop (but powerful) that runs XP but needs a powersupply. When I get it fixed I may use it also for HF Digital Models
Various linux systems for development (I develop web apps for linux and backend middle-ware code for linux)

For Windows I love XP and really can't stand vista, Wins 8. Wins 7 is tolerable.

Pay the $20 and upgrade to Mountain Lion. It's worth it and then some.

You would be a good candidate for ESXi with that many desktops.

AMD Bulldozer 32GB of Ram and 2TB HD running ESXi and 6 virtual TinyXP SP3 machines. 3 virtual machines running Two Tone Detect, 1 running Proscan and PDW, 1 running Weather Display for my weather station and 1 test machine for tinkering. Machine is barely breaking a sweat with its current workload.

Default Windows, Mint, Raspbian

1 Windows Home Server (Backups and web site server.)
5 XP SP3 (2 for wife's accounting business, 1 for grand kids, 1 laptop for travel, 1 for live feeds and scanner programming.)
1 Win 7 (Main browser, email, general use.)
3 Linux Mint (Just for playing around mostly.)
1 Raspbian (I use my raspberry pi to play one of my live feeds over my LAN. I run it headless and have it configured to start VLC on boot-up and automatically play one of my feeds. Only has power, ethernet, and some old speakers connected. I have it in my bedroom so I can listen to the goings-on at night without having to move one of my scanners.)
