Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
 
 

Processors were still in Mhz rather than Ghz never mind multi core support. And as for the formidable gui of xp I'm talking native to the os and not 3rd party software.

Oh rehael, there's probably no way that you can really be convinced, so this is just a game, but from the moment you start to install you will realize there's something different from the tired unhelpful MS that you are used to.

What about
  • dialog boxes written in plain English (for English speakers at least)(no one mentions that), or
  • Search in the start/orb menu so arcane Control Panel apps are a cinch to find, or
  • desktop window tricks (full screen, half screen, show desktop which you start by laughing at and end up using all the time, or
  • a file manager which really is more usable, better designed (design as in thought-out), looks better and where unzipping, unraring, burning, burning images are seamless.
Leave the rest for the others.
