I'd have to say Windows 7. Loved Windows XP too though, but Windows 7 just works so much better. Win 95 and 98 were good for their time though.
Only OSs I hated totally were Windows Me, Windows Vista, and Windows 8, they were complete flops.

Windows 7 but Windows 2000 closely behind it.... The GUI of 2000 was clean and right to the point and OS never got in the away of things as an OS should be.

I dunno if I have a favorite per se.....
Currently I am using win 8, strictly in desktop mode courtesy of classic shell. I see no metro, no hot pockets, no charm bracelets, no other nonsense related to metro.... I have a start button and start menu...

So, basically, win8 in win7 mode.

Oh, I perhaps should mention that I have the task bar(that bottom bar thingy) from win xp.

So...what ev... :whistle: :punk:

Windows 3.11. Simple, stable, and everything just worked as it should. At least for me it did.

Windows 2000
All after Windows 2000 is bloatware and bells and whistles

Windows 2000. First OS that i didn't really want to upgrade from.
Closely followed by Windows XP. Same Reason.

Saying that Windows 7 on a decent build and an SSD. Is pretty unbeatable at the moment.
I have no intention of upgrading to Windows 8 at the moment. Hopefully i can hold on till Windows 9. I managed to hold on to XP till Windows 7 was released.

Worst Windows OS'. Obvious... Windows ME followed by Vista.

Powerusers use Gpedit.msc & secpol.msc


Yeah right with many Group Policies that don't apply or are broken on the latest OS. :p

I was always partial to windows 3.1, but that's because my old 286 was set up to run ms dos 5.
Of the later versions, XP just beats 98
Latest... 7.

Windows 95 as it was the first full on Windows with great multimedia support, i used to run Windows 3.1/3.11 but it was more of a utility and i spent most of my time in DOS.

Next Windows 2000, i loved NT 4.0 and 2000 was the icing on the cake, bringing USB support, multimedia support, rock solid and really quick,

Next Windows 7, reminds me a lot of Windows 2000, fast and ultra reliable,

Next Windows 8, it's really grown on me a lot, love the speed and performance of it, still not massively impressed by metro.

I did love Windows ME as it was the fastest windows for games, i never had any of the stability issues and it would easily play directx games faster than other 9x's and WinXP.

I know it's off topic but

Hated Windows 98/SE and Windows XP as they both slowed down the OS's they were both derived from (Win95 and 2000) adding bloat and not really much else.
