My older, desktop computer has Windows XP. My laptop, which is my main computer now, has Windows 7 on it. I must say, I think 7 works quite well. I haven't seen many problems with it. I don't think it has failed me yet~

I have used almost all windows operating systems, 1 Linux OS and 1 Mac OS. I cannot remember what Mac OS i had, but it was a really old computer so it doesn't really matter. I have Used Linux Ubuntu once, it was too complicated for my simple mind so i gave up. I recently downgraded my laptop from windows vista to XP and my desktop was recently upgraded from Vista to 7. I haven't had any problems with my computers with windows operating systems (except when i had Vista).


Windows 7 is the Best OS Ever

Think of your OS's in this scenario;

Billy: Hey dad, whats an operating system supposed to do?
Dad: Well Billy, an operating system is supposed to provide an environment where many different kinds of software can run well.
Billy: But Linux, OSX, and Windows 7 do that well! How do I decide?
Dad: Well Billy, you have to now assess what kind of software you're going to be using. Which OS looks the most appropriate now?
Billy: Well, OSX is good for graphic design, but nearly all of its programs also run on Windows 7 or have comparable software also for Windows 7. Linux has a lot of great software, but just can't really compete really with the huge libraries of software for Macs and Windows.
But in terms of number of software available, Windows 7 seems to have the most. It also runs new and upcoming games, and also runs classic PC games while XP is left in the dust without DX10.
Dad: There you have it son, Windows 7, which is an operating system, runs ****ING EVERYTHING!

In short, Windows 7 > everything.

Yeah, that's true. On my stationary Windows XP i tried to run Terraria i just bought on steam, but it couldn't run it, the craphic card was too bad. Thanks to steam i could download Terraria on my windows 7 mini pc without buying it again. Terraria almost was perfectly smooth on my mini pc. But seriously, on graphics, OSX wins.

Shouldn't this be in "Technology"? My dad got me a computer for school a few years ago, but it is the crappiest excuse for a computer ever, He got the cheapest one from Dell. It can't even play the sims smoothly! but it is XP and says "Dimension E520" on it
damn. I decided to try Minecraft today and got this

IT'S JUST A BUNCH OF CUBES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
don't be fooled, this really is XP, I just always loved the look of Mac OS X so I used it as my XP theme

I had been using Vista for the longest time until very recently when a friend was kind enough to give me his old PC when he upgraded. It still has XP on it, but I'm not complaining!

Windows 7 all the way, I've dipped my nose to far into XP, I've been a Windows 7 user since February of this year. And a faithful Windows user since the day I was born.
