Your missing the point though, I've asked for a way to acheive this in ADUC for a reason.
 I appreciate the replies but I need to get this info out of ADUC.

Active Directory does not track which user have which computer.
u can, however, get which user is currently logged on which computer.
is that what u want?

You can use an LDAP query in ADUC (let us know if you need information on how that is done).   Here are some queries

So for example for 7

(&(objectCategory=computer)(operatingSystem=Windows 7*))

Thanks

No, I want a list of which computers are running XP (regardless of service pack level), and which are running Windows 7 (regardless of version).

that is what i've posted.
those 2 lines of code, creating 2 reports (1 for each OS version), listing all computer info.
if u want LDAP query then u can use:
(&(objectCategory=computer)((operatingSystem=Windows 7*)|(operatingSystem=Windows XP*)))
