I voted Win 95-98 because Im not a hardcore computer user and Windows suits my need as an average computer user. Plus I've looked all the OS's my Dad has installed and they don't look too user friendly to me. Win 95-98 instead of XP because it doesn't have any of XP's fancy stuff, it runs better and faster on my computer and crashes less.

i voted linux, because though i don't run it myself, all my experiences with it have been great - the fact that it is free is also in its favor. it also comes with a lot of programs and different guis, so id have to say linux. the fact that it is also open source and open to development, and that the people who do work on it donate their time and are not paid (well most) is just awesome.

I don't think I ever heard on the news about a new security hole being discovered in linux and everyone been told to download a fix patch right away Laughing windows on other hand could be compared to a ducktaped chicken wire Laughing

its people on linux who write the viruses for windows... at least thats what i heard.

and im with catalyst, as soon as i buy another pc or get another hd, im getting slackware, the problem with it now is that i have an onboard lan card (on my motherboard built in) and linux won't recognize that without any serious installations and stuff that i have no idea about, so thats a problem cause then i couldn't have internet. but if i get another, cheaper pc then maybe it would work. we will just have to see won't we.

this poll really has no meaning. techincally you should only post if u have some hand-on-experiene (for a duration of at least a month or so) on every os listed up there.

cuz if u don't have such a wide experience with all those os'es.. u really can't compare.
