      I think so jennifer75, Windows 7 has a good performance and compatible with many softwares. If we use Ubuntu, we will be difficult to find software related to our needed. Ubuntu has limited softwares, as we know that software development is created based on the windows compatibility usage.

      For me Ubuntu 10.04 is best

      1. Free
      2. Animation is much better than win 7 (believe me )

      Debian GNU/Linux.
      The most stable, secure option, with literally 10s of thousands of free/open source software packages available.

      I've been using it for a decade, and it's awesome.
      I have not once had a software failure, virus, crash, or intrusion, ever, have all the software I need for anything, and it's free.

      It works great; It's free.
      What's not to like?

      Actually, each one has its own use and disadvantage.

      Windows 7 is for the typical user who surfs the net, listens to music, does a little bit of office apps. That's why it has the most market share. But because of this, more hackers make viruses for this OS.

      Mac OS X is mostly used by content creators. This is for those who make music, do photography, making movies and making websites. Since it is more expensive, it has less market share therefore less viruses.

      Linux is for the tech geeks like me who know handling open source software and people who like customizing.

        Carol, I agree with you. You made some good points. I think one should own a operating system which works best for them. I have ordered a new updated computer with Windows7 included.  I will learn much as I can about the office apps and other features.

      I have used about every windows created, before that I had create my own OS. I have also used Linux which served me well. Usually when a windows OS becomes obsolete or crashes I move to Linux for that computer. Currently I am mostly using windows 7 as it is easiest for my current use. In my opinion windows Vista should have been scrapped within a year of coming out. By far XP  was a better OS. In my experience (I have had 5 computers crash due to viruses)if you don't want your computer to crash a really good virus protection is necessary with any windows OS. For me Vista was the worst for viruses. Linux not so much, never had a computer running Linux crash. I also believe you should choose the OS which best suits your personal needs. Windows 7 works well with Media and its easy to use.

      In my own knowledge and experience, I think Windows 7 is the best operating system because it is the latest operating system today. That means that bugs from the previous versions of operating system have been resolved to come up with this latest operating system version.

      My experience is a little bit different, I feel little bit uncomfortable when I shift to a new OS but as I spend more time on it and learns various aspects of it I start to think it is better than the previous one.
