    Re: What OS do you use and which is best?

    Currently running Vista 64-bit on my desktop and XP on my laptop, it works for me. Yes, I know Vista is a horrible resource hog, but I refuse to upgrade to any new M$ OS until at least SP1, it takes that long to get the bugs out.

    Whether or not it's the "best", who cares? I could certainly imagine ways that *ALL* operating systems could be better. It happens to do what I want it to do, better than any other OS I've tried, therefore I use it. When and if that changes, we'll talk.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That's what YOU think!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I use Windows XP Pro. I have used various versions of Windows, including (if memory serves) 2000 Pro, 98, 95, ME. I used this computer running DOS for a while back.

    I have no experience with Mac or Linux OSs.

    Through work, I may have access on the user end of a I use Windows XP.

    I have no experience with Mac or Linux OSs.

    Through work, I may have experience on the user end of server running Linux, but I'm not sure.

    A friend who has some interest in Linux gave me a copy of a free Linux OS, but I have yet to try it.

    I have issues with my XP install. BSOD, random freezes, etc.

    However, as most of the games that interest me require it, I put up with the crap.

    I plan to purchase Win 7 at some point, once a few bugs are worked out.

    Edit: How do you like the entire history of my computer experiance? Interesting stuff, yes? You know you were interested, don't deny it.

    I use XP on my Desktop and like it alot.
    This Old OS is Manhandled/SPED by an Intel Quad Core Processor and a year old Intel X-25 SSD.

    Whatever OS you use, get an SSD rather than a conventional Hard Drive/HDD.
    It's like Jumping 3 years into the future.

    My computer is 2 years old but could not be significantly faster.
    Aided as well by a 5mb Cable connection.

    I have two portables with Vista Biz (Dell e4200 12", and Fujitsu S6510 14") and they're both pretty quick for notebooks but not as fast as the Desktop.
