Windows 7 is the best. its the mainstream OS that is easy to use, very stable, and quick. Plenty of support. And easy to get, with plenty of selections. Just avoid the bad brands like HP and Acer and the brands that HP and ACER owns... like Gateway(use to be good b4 they were owned), compaq, emachines... ect..

It does have more viruses.. but its because its really popular... ask your self why did osama bin laden destory americas's tallest towers... why not a little shack or a small home?

W7 on the gaming rig and openSUSE for internet/work. Windows is a must for gaming, but otherwise a properly set up Linux rig is like no other.

Which is why a large majority of servers use GNU/Linux...

Using your analogy Osama bin Laden would have far more success if he attacked a communications hub

My supercomputer at home (which rivals NASA's) runs XP (because XP supports everything in the universe) and my quite dated laptop has windows 7 professional. Why you ask? Because it can (the laptop I mean). Strangely enough windows 7 runs very well on a five year old laptop with a ram upgrade, I'm quite pleased about that.

Windows 7 for myself, on an HP business laptop. No complaints whatsoever.

Re: Which OS(s) do you run? - July 5th 2010, 09:08 PM

Personally, it's all about Ubuntu for me. I've been using it since '05 and I've watched it mature into a very awesome OS. Windows is crap. Windows 7 is barely Alpha quality. Vista, well, I won't go there. XP was okay, but sadly enough, my favorite Windows was 3.1 Yeah, I know.

I've used Tiger, Leopard, and SL in the past, but I'm still a Linux person.

I've used other distros as well, but none are as good as Ubuntu to me. I have it customized and tricked out, per se.

The list of Windows OS's in terms of quality. Starting with the worst, getting to the best (note, this only goes from 95-7. I don't include any before 95)


Vista <=========The worst
ME (Mistake Edition)
95
7
XP
98 <=======The best

My laptop runs Vista, my desktop runs XP.

I might try and do a dual boot at some point and stick Ubuntu in to see what it's like.

I have Windows 7. Sometimes it gets on my nerves, other times I like it.

I have two computers, one desktop PC and a Laptop.
The laptop has Windows 7... the PC has Vista.

And frankly, Windows 7 is the better of the two. My laptop is just a little bit less powerful than the PC, yet the laptop is faster...

And my work has W7 installed there, as well.
