I've used windows 7 64bit doing simple stuff like turrets and arms. I've used python a little but I stick with c++ mostly. It's faster and allows my code to work easier with openCV, openNI and other open source code bases.

My robots all run a flavor of Linux though. It's easy to use, low overhead and doesn't have any fluff that comes with windows type platforms.

My first computer based robot was with a raspberry pi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iE3Yv2s6n4

It worked great but any vision stuff was slow so I moved up to an Intel NUC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJ3oN1HnyOU
