I use Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux.
I like them both but for different reasons.
Windows because I'm very used to the interface and it supports a huge number of applications. XP in particular because it's stable rarely crashes and has a friendly face (so to speak).
That said it boots slowly, is a disc and memory hog, and still seems a bit of a security risk.
Ubuntu Linux because it starts up and shuts down very rapidly. The games and rendering are excellent and the layout and default OS tools are much more user centric and functional. There is also a lot of public domain (Gnu License) software for Linux that is easy to download and install...if you know what you are doing.
That said the office tools look clunky and the printer support isn't up to Windows standards.
I use Ubuntu Linux because of stability, graphics, speed, performance and mostly security. You install anti-virus or not, it does not make a difference as NO VIRUSES EXIST FOR THIS KIND OF ADVANCED OPERATING SYSTEM!
I love em all! Mac for personal use, windows for work! but when i get bored, i just run both
I like AmigaOS 4 most. I work with Windows and MacOS, but they are not even close to the speed, ease of use, customization and features of AmigaOS 4.
I like Windows XP because of
1) I won’t have any trouble finding hardware and drivers.
2) I won’t have any problems finding support.
3) Most widely supported operating system for games.
4) Large shareware and freeware application library.
At the moment, it would be Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I guess I will soon change my mind to Lion once it's out. I am still using Windows 7 for my desktop though and my netbook is on Linux Ubuntu. Both are great but Mac is still better and much more stable.
I am currently using Windows and haven't had any problems with it, so I guess you could say I like it the post.
Windows 7 hands down. Much easier to use than any of Window's previous OS's. Plus it looks much better and has an increased performance.
OS? Oh, wait. I thought we were talking about off shore bank accounts.
Anytime Windows is the best one i mean xp versions not the latest version i.e windows7.I am not much satisfied with windows7 not only me i think everybody feels the same thing.Anyway i like WindowsXP.
Ubuntu 10.4 from Oracle..Great OS to work just work in this OS and you will see the difference by own.
all Windows OS are easily infected by viruses and trojans but linux ubuntu has more powerful in this feature.
I currently have Windows 7 and love it. Before that it was XP and I loved that, but not at first. I was hooked on Windows 95 then, it did everything I wanted.
its ease is d main reason
and secondly its Graphics r quite good
However W7 has better graphics bt ist not easy to use
and if u donaot hav Genuine version
then u get consistently Pop up msg of Activating it>
Ubuntu 10.4 is an OS I am just playing with right now and liking very much. I am considering switching from win/vista to Ubuntu on desktop and laptop.
I like Ubuntu because there are so many programs for it - way more than windows but the programs take up less space.
Windows 7 Anytime better than Mac..... Apple Computer Repair Hong Kong
Anything is better than Windows ME. I liked XP and I think it was a lot easier to navigate. I have windows 7 now, and It kind of pisses me off, because I have to use way too many programs to find what I am looking for.
I have a very hard time finding things that I have downloaded to the computer, especially when it comes to my photos. It takes me forever to find them, and for some reason, they don't all end up in the same place. I have to hunt for them.
I prefer Ubuntu Linux these days - it's stable and it does what I want it to. It doesn't act on its own like Windows. For those into computer technology it's also a lot easier to get things working.
hi,there,for me ,WindowsXP,a class,btr than the Win2000.
V 7,seem that cost too much,at least not fit my PC now.
I like Windows simply because it is stable (xp Onwards), versatile (has a huge array of available programs), and is easy to use.
Just for the record I have not had a virus take out my Windows computer in years, All I have ever used is commercial or free protection. Most viruses and Adware get in by tricking the user.
I like window 2007 best as i am very comfortable in this OS And it is very user friendly also.
Am now using win7 it took me a while to get use to and am loving it.the best thing about it is that it allows me to navigate and switch between application more easily. the security is also one thing that it like about win7
Windows 7, but I think the upcoming Microsoft Windows is good. Windows 8 would be something to watch for
You never need to wait 7 minutes before you start using.
Manual input is not always required but sometimes appreciated.
All the useful icons are always in the same place.
They keep going even after a hardware failure.
Any connected peripherals 'just work'.
You never need to reboot the system.
Apparently previous generations of OS gals help the new editions out as well
OS X Snow Leopard for me, but I have always been a Mac
Looking forward Mac's Lion's release in the summer.
Had to use XP, Vista and 7 for work - never liked them, although Windows '8' rumours sound interesting...
Linux in general because it is FREE and open source too.
In the Windows line certainly XP for performance. Win7 offers little more than fancy graphics...
In a decade of using Debian GNU/Linux, it has never once failed me. I've never had a virus or crash, intrusion, or interruption of my work for software failures.
Not surprisingly, I LOVE gnu/linux!
I have all the software I need for my work, entertainment, software development, web development, communcations, and even business administration (I am self-employed, running a business from home), and none of it has ever cost me a penny, too.
What's not to love!
It works GREAT, doesn't give me headache or fail me, and it's FREE!
I like Windows 7 a lot, I like how it automatically scans for new drivers when you plug something into the computer.
I choose Windows 7 for creating content.
But, I really like Android 3.0 now for consuming content. It's more fun using your finger and hand gestures while reading on the couch..etc.
My first choice will be Windows XP for sure. it's simplicity rules. (Compared to vista & windows 7)I do have experienced Windows vista & windows 7 also. if i have to choose between vista & windows 7, windows 7 will be my choice because of the increased performance.
win 7 is the best because of its appearance i just love it
I've built a half dozen or so pc's over the years, and had a few macs.
I still keep one pc just for the occasional compat issues since I don't like running emulations, but I'll certainly never go back to windows.
If I were running servers or something, I'd probably have dug deeper into Linux by now, but I don't know too much about it for now.
I run hundreds of plugins simultaneously while streaming audio and video from 4 drives... and I often do it while a host of other things are running.
On different machines I run a variety of OS's, right now including Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu Linux, and - one that hasn't been mentioned here so far, FreeBSD. I like FreeBSD for running mail, file sharing, and web services.
I, like many others, hated Vista. Among Windows versions, I still like XP the best. Windows 7 is OK but some capabilities seem to have disappeared. If I didn't need Windows for work, I probably wouldn't run it at all. I'd stick with Ubuntu for workstations and laptops, FreeBSD for servers.
Hack Pc, I tried using almost all operating system like Ubuntu, Win 98, Win 2000, Win XP, VISTA, and Win7. Based on my experience with those operating systems, I think Windows 7 has the best features among other operating system. I was really amazed on the boot up speed of windows 7 it is almost 2x faster that windows vista. I was a vista us before for almost 3 years and currently running windows 7 ultimate.
In my opinion Windows XP and Windows7 are the best OS I have used.

actually, there is really no "THE BEST" os in the market.. It's all about user preference.. but I can give you the most preferred OS'es by the masses..- Windows (7, xp) - these are preferred by people because of its "user friendliness" and a lot of softwares are compatible with...
