    i guess the latest would be the best so i would go with WinXP. but most hardware are not XP compatible so WinME would be the safest choice if you are upgrading a really old PC. :)

    ME is the most unstable OS ever built. Win2000 appears to be more stable than XP, but has less features.

    I used to like win 98 alot till i got winxp, it seems alot faster, and more things for it to customize it the way you want it... But the truth is, the best os out there is whatever best suites your needs. Not what other people say, BUt its still good to read other users opionions about the differnt windows OS's and more.

    for me its win2k. i'm waiting for the next version of XP, just like win98 has a lot of improvements over 95, the next xp should be a step ahead of the current xp, which i suppose is the first in its generation

    Best Windows OS must be Win98 as I have little problem with it for the last 5 years. Hate XP and ME but 2000 is good for the server or file storage which is what I use it for. Win 95 was good or even 3.11. I remember using them in the NHS about 6 to 8 years ago!

    OS

    I definitely agree that XP looks and feels the best, but so many programs dont run, or run badly on XP. I also dont like the fact that XP seems to have advertising programs in it. I also find XP comes up with so many error messages, that windows 98 will always be my preference, due to the fact it works better (for me)

    Depends on what you're doing.
    Linux/*nix is the OS that drives the internet, and it's getting better and better for regular desktop use every day.
    It's also attractively priced at FREE (for a download-and-burn-your-own-CD situation). Otherwise you can get a full boxed set for anywhere from Free to 70$ (or so) depending on the distribution and included software.
    WinXP Professional, you pay about 300$ (for the full installation at best buy). You get a manual and one CD... If you time it right, you might get a free month of AOL Internet with it (from Best Buy - NOT Miscrosoft).
    Linux SuSe Professional 8.2 (also at best buy) costs about 50$, and comes with five CD-ROMs, two DVDs, a Quick Install Poster, two manuals and 90 days of installation support.
    Bit of a difference, huh? Linux comes with Apache Web Server, mySQL Server, FTP server(s), Mail Exchanges/sendmail, all the compilers and development tools you could hope for, games, chat/IM/msg/ftp/irc/mail client(s), a built-in firewall, NO built-in spyware and a ton more... If you wanted all this extra stuff with Windows, their equivalent would cost you hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) $ more.

    Support these competitive Operating Systems, guys. They are excellent (and getting better/friendlier), and also they're the only thing standing between Microsoft and their greedy conquer-the-world B.S.
