I have used them all from 3.1 on up. i always hesitate to jump on the "new" os bandwagon until months after it's released. I really liked Win XP and continue to use it. i recently installed Win 7 ultimate and am really liking it. Every new OS seems to have less clicking to achieve a task. Win 7 has some sweet eye candy in it and is very easy to use. Much more secure too. I like Xp pro and Win 7 for now. I don't believe in going backwards unless it was better.

I liked 98 se myself it just seemed easier to work with than others before. I never used ME myself and waited until XP was a few years old before bothering with it. I did like that XP was more secure. For business use I still have to lean towards XP but for the home pc I have moved on to 7 ultimate and really do like it for the moment.

Hmmm...

Mac OS 7.x

It was efficient, powerful, feature rich, and fast! It can run on anything from a 68000 up to a PowerPC. Yes, it wasn't written in assembly like System 1-6, but none the less, it was beautiful! Oh how I miss the days of System 7, R.I.P. good friend, you are missed every day I spend in front of a keyboard.

PowerMac 9600(1 ghz G4)
512mb RAM
50gb SCSI
ATi 9200 PCI

1=Awesome, 10=Bag of hurt

1. Windows 7 (just awesome in every way)
2. Win2000 (extremely fast and stable)
3. Vista
4. XP Pro
5. Win95 (convinced me to ditch the Mac)
6. NT4
7. Mac OS 7.5
8. Mac OS <7.0
9. Win 98SE (was a pain in the ass but could run games. Dual boot w/ NT4)
10. DOS 6.0/Win3.1 (the command prompt made me feel like a moron, and Windows 3.1 was no Mac replacement)

"Mac OS 7.x"
That is a joke! Apple has tried catching up to M$ and will never do it, they will always be a minority.

Windows XP pro is still the best, Windows 7 runs a close 2nd but is lacking in some features which they dropped from XP, media streaming, etc.
But Windows 7 will be the OS of the future for many years to come.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Hmmmm....favorite OS eh.

Let's see, from a strictly networking point of view, Novell of course. Microsoft stole/copied Novell's best ideas and incorporated them into Windows....years later.

As far as server OS's go......depending on what you're doing in order of most liked to least it would be:
1) Unix
2) Linux
3) Windows

Desktop OS's:

For non-gaming PC's:
1) Linux
2) UNIX
3) Windows

For gaming PC's:

1) XP Pro
2) 98

On a side note, other than some testing at work, I've yet to really use Windows 7. My wife likes it and everbody I've spoken with likes it too so I suspect when the time comes and I finally install it on something, I'm sure it will eventually take over as my "favorite" gaming OS.

I had no problems what so ever with XP. Always maintained a virus free environment with AVG Free and Malwarebytes. Never had any problems with stability.

I put an OEM version of Vista on a computer I built and never had any problems with it either. Gave it 4 gigs of RAM and a good processor. I think most of the Vista sucks hype was due to the fact that, yes, it is more of a resource hog, but computer manufactures were selling computers with 512mb of RAM and throwing a bloated version of Vista on it. Of course thats run slow.

Win7 is my favorite to date though. Didn't take too long to get used to the interface, and know where mostly everything is now. It just feels solid, and definitely runs very lightly on my desktop, laptop, and even netbook.

My name is JRComp, and I approve this message.
