Aside from the hard components of a computer and the BIOS, the Operating System is the most important thing, software-wise. From the old days of DOS and Unix-based systems, to our current days of Windows 7, the Operating System has allowed us to communicate with our computer and allowed us to use it for virtually every application there is.

 

What OS are you using at the moment?

 

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate.

Windows XP,no fancy stuff but it gets the job done

It's funny that during Vista's short lifespan, more people used XP than Vista.

XP.

I fear change...

 

Linux is pretty cool, too, but it'd just be too much of a pain in the neck to me.

I can respect those who can have full control over it and stuff, but I'm an electrical engineer, not a computer scientist!

Software confuses and enrages me!

 

And Macs... Don't get me started on Macs...

(Actually, I really don't care. But it's fun to pretend that i do, especially around my Apple fanboy cousin )

Personally, I loved XP. Vista was a headache. 7 is pretty nice though, I like it.

Same here. 7 is pretty much Vista without the suckage.

I am currently using Windows 7, but was previously using Windows Vista. I upgraded because it was cheap to do so as a student. I had no problems with Vista, nor have I had any problems with Windows 7. Both worked like a charm.

Yeah, I tried Vista actually and it worked pretty okay for me. But 7 is better.

Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

 

My OS history is like this: Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows XP and now Windows 7. The longest period was the XP one, 8-9 years.

I can't really vote on one as I run Linux and Windows regularly.

 

Although my computer right now is running Windows XP.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit as well. Bought it on finance since it cost quite a bit.

 

I started out using Windows 98SE, then Windows 2000 before I moved on to Windows XP. I've never used Vista. Though I used DOS and Windows 3.1 when I was about 3-4 years old.

I am using Windows 7 Professional 32bot. I wish I could move to Ubuntu, but Steam won't make the move.

I actually managed to run Steam in Ubuntu for the short while I was using it. But it was glitchy to say the least.

Windows 7 Starter; I liked XP, but Windows 7 is definitely a great improvement. Hell, I'm using it on a little netbook that I share with my grandmother and it's allot better than my old computer. It's not the fastest, but it's lightning compared to my old laptop.

Microsoft can be proud of Windows 7 and Windows XP, they are mighty fine operating systems. Though what I don't like is how much they love brightness. Everything is so bloody white with dark letters on top. The only dark theme Windows 7 offers is a butt ugly high contrast theme next to something like 10+ white stylish ones. Where are the stylish dark themes? Black Windows explorer, with cool aero effects? That would look really badass.

 

Sometimes I wonder if Microsoft art designers sleep in pale white rooms with their eyes open, with lighted halogen bulbs everywhere.
