Windows 7 is interesting because in essence, it's not so much one major tweak but a bunch of minor tweaks here and there. However, all those minor tweaks add up to improve performance and make it lighter than Vista, especially on weaker hardware. On Vista, a P4 3.0 Ghz CPU with 1 GB of RAM almost cringes yet with 7, it hums along.

Lots have complained about WinME but I never had any problems with it. I believe they pushed it out while they finalised XP and it was the first time we saw the System Restore feature which was a very good addition and was improved upon in all following OS's.

I don't in all honesty have any bad experiences with the ones I've had, 98, WinME, XP Home, Vista and 7

windows ME for me was ok, actually! It got pig slow towards the end of it's life, but other than that if you treated it carefully it was a relatively alright OS.

For me, it has to be puppy linux; ugly, difficult to get working on non standard hardware, etc etc. Although the same is true for lots of 'lightweight' linux distros. ArchLinux is a close second, it refused to recognise my motherboard, and its helpfiles were of little to no use, lol. (I am by no means a beginner linux user either!!)

POKE !

I've used a few shockers along the way.

Some were MS, some were not.

Never had much trouble with Vista either.

I always thought the first edition of Windows 98 (not SE) was the worst OS. ME followed a close second. Followed by Vista. I've never owned Vista, and I doubt I ever will. I now use Windows 7.

I've used Windows 3.11, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows XP, and Windows 7. I have to say Windows 7 is the best one so far, closely followed by Windows XP and Windows ME.

My top OSes :
Windows 7 (of course!)
Windows Vista

XP is outdated. Even Vista is better.

Absolutely how I feel.

I never actually used Vista on my "main" machine; hated it when I had to use it on someone else's rig. To be fair, I think some of the reason it was not well received was due to the UAC stuff. By the time Win7 rolled around a lot of people were used to it so it didn't seem like as much of a nuisance.
