I'd do the floor first, easier to get the drywall 1/2" above the floor that way.

I'm just the opposite. I put up drywall, mud and paint before doing the tile. Probably because I'm sloppy when mudding and painting and I don't want to have to clean drips off the tile.

I guess the answer is it's personal preference

I'd do drywall first.
It'll make removal of the tiles much, much easier down the road. Nothing drives me more crazy then trying to get flooring out from under the floor.
If you where doing wood flooring, it would allow for expansion and contraction which is required in some cases.

And like Wayne Mitchell mentioned, it saves the mess on your new flooring (I'm bad with paint spray).

Naww, there are plenty more at the paint store

When applying finishes it's best to start at the top and work your way down. Drop cloths work great but if you do that part before the flooring is finished - it's less work

A drywall finisher with a drop cloth??? Unheard of!

Another vote for doing the hardi & tile last.

I had a neighbor who allowed his hardwood flooring to be installed (not prefinished) before the sheetrock finisher came. They never got all the particles out of the grain of the oak.

I'm alone in my opinion, do your walls first.

I painted for one builder that had always installed the hardwood as the last stage of framing
When me and the floor finisher explained to him how much money he could save by postponing the installation - he came around

Drywall first, when finished think floors.
