What is your favorite Windows OS and why?

My favorite Windows OS is Windows 95 because it's what started everything. All of the modern Windows OSs still retain the features it had back then.

I'd have to agree. It's fast, looks great and does everything!

Still say Windows 2000 was awesome though. ;)

Hard choice.

Win 2k was absolutely brilliant. XP as well (after SP2 imo)

Win 7..

Loving my Win 8 installs at the moment though.

It works great and is highly understandable.

Like Windows 7 mostly, too.

Windows 7 is my favourite but Windows XP has served me the longest!

Windows 7, because it runs smooth of many machines and can customise it with very nice themes!

I am enjoying Windows 8 atm though!

For me as far as Winders go, it's easily 7. Everything works fast and consistently, high reliability, and a very solid "it just works" factor. 8's a close second just because it takes a bit of fiddling to get it where I like it... with a bit of tweakery it's a near tie for me. Before that, 2K Pro. XP wasn't bad, big annoyance factor with it's poor stability though, could get Explorer to crash just by looking at it funny.

Windows 8, followed closely by Windows 7.

When I was younger, it was Windows 2000. Always preferred it to XP.

Windows XP of course as that's where the all-important balance in the user experience was for Grandma vs Power users before everything got tilted in favor of Grandma.

Windows 8 Enterprise

"Power users" as in users who use tune-up utility's and registry cleaners to administrate their computer :rolleyes: Said users wont come close to seeing the power of the new versions from applocker to windows to go.

Powerusers use Gpedit.msc & secpol.msc

Windows 7 by far, followed by Windows 2000.

I use Windows 8, but I need the start button. If Microsoft had an option for the "classic" start button (like Windows 7), this would be my favorite OS.

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.

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