8>7>Vista>2000>XP imo. 8/7/Vista are all about the same, really, but pre-8 they're all pretty similar for usability. Ubuntu would be probably around Vista level.


This

And the guy saying that some games don't work in windows 8 but work in 7 is suspect. I haven't had a single issue and I've seriously played well over 100 different games since using windows 8. I have even tested a few titles that some people mentioned without error. PEBKAC issues for the most part.

DOS clearly belongs at the top of any such list.

Lean, efficient, easy to script against, no annoying icons cluttering up the screen... it's an easy choice for me.


Do people actually say "script against?" I don't think I've heard that. I'd say script for or just script. Not that it really matters, everyone knows what you mean.

I'd have to go with.

BSD > Linux > Solaris > Amiga > OSX > Haiku > VTech > Windows (DOS > 3.1 > all later versions)

CP/M rules them all.
#35AlexKidd5000Posted 11/4/2013 7:18:12 PM
But if you want my real opinion, GNU/Linux is the real ruler.

7 > XP > 8 > Vista > everything else

It's been far too long since I've used some of the versions of Windows that came before Millenium to gauge how much I enjoyed using them.

98se #1


And yet, 98 se1 never could manage to even do something as simple as turn itself off.
It's amazing how crappy operating systems were back then.


Yep. My old 98SE machine shut down properly literally once, I remember this because I was really impressed. Other than that, it blue screened every time and I just had to hit the power button.


Mine was/is less interesting, it just hangs on shutdown.

I have an adversarial relationship with all my OSes... its always against, never for.

Any Linux OS


At first I was going to ask why you would put linux in the garbage tier, but then i realized you wrote "any linux OS" and it became apparant that you don't know much about it.

Just because you aren't familiar with something doesn't mean its bad.
