Favorite Windows OS (OK to post multiple)

Post by PicoRiveraCalifornia on Sat Mar 16, 2013 6:37 pm

Well, it seems we all have different preferences in an operating system for our games. So, what's your favorite?

I would say Windows 7 is the best OS Microsoft has made and my favorite, it feels well made and alot of thought has gone into it, it feels retro and modern at the same time and it just works well.

Definitely Windows 7. Took the great potential from Vista and made it a great reality. It also borrowed intelligently from Mac OS features without going too far in that direction and becoming overly user-friendly.

Sadly, Windows 8 has gone too far. It's nice to have a smooth, sleek interface, but that sacrifices the visibility of things PC-savvy users might want to be able to see. 7 keeps it balanced: Navigation is dynamic and appealing, but you can still be fully aware of what's going on under the hood.

I just can't get enough of Windows 7. Putt: Happy Face Microsoft obviously saw what they did wrong with Vista and had stability and extensive bug-testing in mind during the development of W7.

Although they're going to phase out long-term support for XP next year, it still proves to be very useful especially on older laptops such as my Dell Latitude CPx.

Windows 3.1, 95 and 98...well they're all pretty much the best OSes for running older games on. Quite helpful if you can't get something working on a newer computer.

Windows ME is without a doubt the greatest achievement of mankind!

My first two favorite Windows operating systems are Windows XP and Windows 7. I have a Dell computer with Windows XP Professional SP2 on it.

For older OSes, I'm a fan of Windows 95 for life. My original Packard Bell Legend 822CDT childhood computer came with it and it was the OS I used to learn how to use a computer. Nowadays, Windows 95 to me seems like a perfect inbetween for mid '90s gaming, which is my favorite game era. It can run everything designed for Windows 95, everything designed for Windows 3.1, and MS-DOS. I also like Windows 3.1x just because it's cool and fun to play with.

For current OSes, I'm very partial to Windows 7. I've always said it's "Vista done right" and I stand by that. It has the features and look of Vista with the speed and reliability of Windows XP.

Speaking of Windows XP, it's my second favorite modern OS because it's lightweight, always reliable, and can run on just about anything. It'll be a sad day next year when Windows XP loses support from Microsoft.

Windows XP is probably the OS that will define my computer experience for a long time, but Windows 7 is my favorite simply because it's got the best parts of Windows XP and Vista without many of the problems that plagued either of the two (especially Vista). I really, REALLY like the Windows 9x series, though, since they're the most nostalgic for me.

Wow. Looks like Windows 7 is a popular OS. XP comes in a close second and I saw some fans of 95. I for one am a fan of Windows 95, 98, XP and Windows 7.

Best: New OS's: Windows 7: It's lite, it's fast, and it looks really great! It looks better than Vista and preformes better too  Putt: Happy Face

Worst: New OS's: Windows Vista: **** this stupid ****, it is very slow, lags all the time, I don't like how it looks, plus it's incompatible with many stuff.

Best: Old OS's: Windows 2000: Like Windows 7's granddad

Worst: Old OS's: Windows ME and 98: Okay, 98 for me and a couple of people I know gave crashing problems, and well, ME, why do I need to explain...

Honestly, after all the patches, Vista looks a lot like, and looks to act like 7. Essentially the poor man's version of 7. 95's ok, but 98 (SE anyway) kicks its ass. Amazing compatibility with EVERYTHING! Glad you're in the 7 loving camp.

I had Service Pack 1, it would not let me upgrade it to SP2, I even tried it manuelly, but nope, and SP1 is very buggy, so yeah. Vista sucked back then, and is sucks forever!

I believe Vista's been completely hacked open, so you should be able to... cough.

Windows 1.0, 3.1, 95, 98, NT Workstation 5.0, 2000, Whistler, XP, 7, 8.1 and 10 are my favorites.

I didn't include Windows Vista since one of my laptops passed out because it couldn't open Windows files.

The reason is because it was saying "Windows could not open a file because your file system is damaged" and I don't know if VirtualBox was the case of it happening since I was running Windows XP on it.

BRAND NEW EDIT: Took out Me because I hate it now (unstable)

ANOTHER EDIT: I now run Windows 10!

I have to admit, Windows 10 is looking REALLY nice. I tried the tech preview on my laptop a few months ago and I absolutely love the new start menu. It really combines the old with the new and it's done in a way that makes sense.

Sam: Happy Windows 98 and Windows XP have to be my old favorites (XP was the first Windows I ever used), and Windows 98, because all my old Humongous Entertainment games I first played on XP seem to suit 98 very well.) For modern Windows, Windows 7 has to be my favorite because it's very reliable, even though it will drop a few spots when Windows 10 comes out and I get my hands on a legit copy because I like Windows 10's look, and in my opinion, Windows 7 is starting to become a bit behind compared to Linux and OS X, but it's still reliable.
