    Why not Windows? Windows 7 as a desktop OS is wonderful. I haven't used the Win7 Mobile so I can't say for sure how it fairs. But I did vote Android only because of its openness, assuming the manufacturer of the tablet doesn't try to lock it down (and fail as usual).

    No complaints about Win7, but I think it may be time to ditch Firefox, just been buggy and one issue after another.

    As for tablets, if and when they have the power to run full desktop apps, then I'd lean toward Win7. Until then it's Android all the way. And I guess if we're moving toward cloud computing Android wins again.

    I don't like the iPad or the Android tablets because basically they are just large phones, except you can't make calls. I'd rather have a smaller, desktop-based tablet then a larger phone-based tablet.

    The idea of a Windows tablet is laughable, but I already saw it. I saw a demo of a table that was running both Android and Windows. Saw it on a local news broadcast that was talking about CES.

    But a Windows only tablet? No way would I be interested.

    ^This. Throw in a detachable keyboard and then I have a netbook, potentially even a home PC, replacement.

    Windows 7. As much as I like Android I have a phone already if/when I get a tablet I need something to actually do "work" on and Android just doesn't cut it. I've played with a buddy's Dell Duo and got to say it's pretty sweet. I have Windows7 on an OLD IBM tablet (x7) and as old as that thing is Windows7 runs GREAT on it and lets me do all the things Android can't.

    Windows 7... stylus support, inking, full apps, larger (larger than any mobile-ish OS) developer base
