No one gets my sense of humor. It was a joke.
lol, jokes can't really be expressed without smiley face. Over the internet anyway...

iOS is in between Ubuntu and XP. So it's good-ish.
I don't really remember what Windows 95 was like....I was drinking pretty heavily then. After that, I had no computer until XP SP3.....and I did like that. After that, as Jaidyn says, iOS, which runs my iPod Touch, is pretty nice. Never tried any Linux variant or Mac OSX though.

I did - but don't let Joan see this post



Non GUI, probably MS DOS 5.0-6.2 (never tried OS/2 Warp)

Spent a lot of time with W98, but Vista was probably my favourite. Hard to give any definitive reason.

In Linux land, probably Mint 8 or OpenSuse 11.2 (last distros I really bothered spending any serious time working with/tweaking).

Distros after that, the ootb experience seemed to be a few steps forward, and several steps back.

And using Unity/Gnome 3 atm is like using KDE 4 when it first appeared - it may be pretty and new, but they're fundamentally broken and essentially just a PITA.

Coincidentally I had all new gear when Vista 64 bit arrived and I had a very good experience with that. Couldn't really understand why every one was having issues.
Also my previous XP rig had been pretty poor by any standard which helped with the feeling of luxury in Vista on the new one

Same I didn't know what was wrong with it apart from some performance issues before the Service packs - Apart from one thing Vista was very sensitive with RAM
