Actually I would say Windows 2000 even I used XP, Vista and 7. I like the lightness of Windows 2000. No knick-knack, no abundance.
But today no more usable. So I use Windows 7 and skip 8.

I think Windows 2000 was the one that has impressed me the most. It was so clean and stable.

I'll vote for Windows 7 I guess, but it's hard to choose. There were so many great versions.

It would be easier to list the versions I really don't like. Windows 1.x, Windows Me, Windows 8.

I've liked every version since Windows 2000. Even Vista and Windows 8.

Windows 7, no need for touchscreen optimized garbage OS on a regular PC.

Windows 7 > XP > 95. Win 95 was incredible for it's time, it transformed what a computer was as windows 3.1 was prehistoric in comparison. XP was great once SP2 was released which blocked popups in IE and added a lot of other good stuff. Windows 7 has always been great, it was a bit buggy for the first 6 months but once the stability patches were released it has been a wonderful O.S since then. I hate windows 8, i want to get rid of metro and restore the start menu then it would be a great O.S.

I've used XP, Vista and win 7 only. Clearly 7 wins here. But I must say XP can do things perfectly on a low config PC. (used run on 256MB RAM)

My favourite is Windos 2000 because its simple and uncluttered followed by Vista SP2,my least favourites are Windows Me ,Vista without any service packs and so far windows 8 (they trying to make it too much like a tablet) windows 7 is by far physicaly the best OS they have made so far
tbh Xp was crap when it first arrived but improved alot as it went along.
