Windows 7: What is the worst ever...?

I've not had any bad OS's each one I've used has done the job it was intended for and not caused me any grief.

There will always be some who dislike certain aspects of whichever OS they currently have installed you just have to learn to accept what you have and make the most of it, nothing is ever perfect

Oh by the way I've used Windows 98, WinME, XP, Vista and Windows 7.

The above comment reminds me of the old TechTV show, "Call for Help" with Chris Pirrillo. At the end of the show he read emails from viewers and would answer their problems. One day he read a couple and then came to one that went like this. == The viewer writes "My computer has been freezing up and I have to turn it off and reboot to continue. I have ran several programs to find any problems, but so far nothing. Yesterday I formated my hard drive and reinstalled Windows ME." == Pirrillo just tore the card he was reading and threw it up in the air and went on the the next problem.

I have a Windows Vista SP2 on my laptop and it needs abt. 10 minutes after boot to become usable(fairly usable).
This could be the machine itself...not neccessarily Vista...
The laptop was bought abt 6 months ago and it work fine under XP and 7.

I never liked VAX/VMS which we used about hundred years ago when I started my studies. Maybe not the worst OS I've used, but though coding (cobol and fortran) was quite straight forward I can still remember what PITA it was to create VMS user interfaces.

actually now that i think of it it is actually a tossup between me and 2000. me would simply have that occasional freeze and then go back to normal running. 2000 had gui problems, driver problems, even less tweakable than 7 is, and it was limited on what games could be played on it. granted it was the prelude to xp which when compared to 2000 xp was a work of art.

They are not THAT bad, just compared to others they are more or less fail.
