Operating Systems - the best one

OK somebody has to ask it.................

What is the best operating system you have used (or heard of)??

Microsoft windows 3.1?
MS Windows 95?

Go on name the one you liked best old or new (maybe even win XP??!!)

You can even choose Linux or another, think and answer back!

My vote goes to Microsoft windows Me- I use it now!

Music Lover,

I've run all windows O's from 3.1 up.

I've generally found that each operating system generally outdoes the last, with one exception.

Me, was a total nightmare for me, from start to finish, although it ran well on other systems I built.

Win 98se I believe probably runs fastest for gaming, and related progs.

XP pro is by far the most reliable, and is installed on my main pc.

98se runs on my childrens.

I use XP Pro, too. On the upside, the features are pretty good, it has NTFS and network support and it can be very visually attractive if you avoid the standard Telly-tubbies desktop and blue theme. On the downside, it only works fine if every bit of software and hardware is 100% happy with XP and vise versa. Any little problem seems to create instability and errors. Provided you can hit on the right setup, it is the best OS around. Never thought I'd say that about a Microsoft product.....

Started with the Sinclair's,used all Microsoft products including XP Pro, now on XP Home. Still liked ME though, never had any problems as such with it.

but I'm not sure what the point of this thread is Music Lover.

We'll all have our favourite, but that doesn't really prove anything does it?
