    What OS do you use and which is best?

    I was wondering which operating system you all use and which one you think is the best. Personally, I use Mac OS X and I also think it's the best (except for gaming )

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

    I have Windows 7 Starter, (netbook) and Windows Vista on my home PC (which is out of commission for the time being.

    I don't particularly feel either is that wonderful, but I've always used Windows products, since they seem to have a bit of a monopoly on user-friendly OS.

    I am trying to find someone help me load Ubuntu to a memory stick (or sooner or later I am going to order an external CDrom drive for this thing) so I can try it out. I don't game in any sense of the word, so what I really need a good, stable and reliable OS. I haven't found that with ANY of the Windows OS's I've ever used.

    I like Windows. It's relatively straight forward and easy to use. I have Window boxes for work/lab sorts of stuff. I have a Linux box just for me to play around with.

    I use windows. Whether it is the best OS, I have no idea, but since it does whatever I need it to with a minimum of fuss, it works for me.

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

    I use windows 7 64 bit edition. It doesn't seem to be as buggy or as much of a resource hog as vista. In my opinion it is better than the other OSs mostly because of software compatibility. The only emulators I need are to play nintendo and sega games. I could care less if those OS have less viruses and aware, thats due to the scarcity of users for those OS. Scarcity is only a good selling point for collectibles, not **** people use every single day and possibly have to have parts for. So what you can find a windows emulator that works Macs and linuxes and other OS that only five people on the whole entire planet use(Yes I know that more than 5 people use Macs and Linuxes,maybe 8 or 9 people use those OS, just kidding. There are probably a slightly significant amount of people who use those OSs).

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Chrome is much less resource intensive, fast and flexible.Only the elite 13% use it.

    Windows XP.
    I cannot say which is the better , a huge factor is the computers size(a laptop or a desktop).. ..if automobiles were as troublesome

    Chrome is a browser, right? I'm using Chrome now. I used to use Firefox, but it was a resource hog big time... at least it was more stable than IE.

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

    I have a Mac laptop and I have had it for about 5 years now. The only problem I have ever had with it is needing to get one new battery. I can honestly say that if I never have to get another Windows again, I won't.
