    Windows for me, I love Windows but hate some of Microsoft's business pratices, at also some of the things they do with windows and your privacy at times.
    There are some real morons in this world please do not become one of them, do not become a victim of moronitis. PROGRAMMING IS THE FUTURE...THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not going to vote because i haven't used all of them, so i feel its unfair to pick windows just because i use it.

    btw: win2k rocks.

    For normal PC use, like mail, spreadsheet, wordprocessing, internet etc. I prefer Windows. For more technical stuff I prefer OS'es which are not listed. Like VxWorks, OS9 and QNX.

    >Actually i like dos a lot too.<

    Indeed. For it's purpose, DOS is one of my favorite OS's to date. It's simple, fast, and does what it's supposed to do.

    QNX is awesome. That's definitely one OS I'd love to see overthrow MS's monopoly.

    QNX is a real-time platform, an RTOS, it is free to download for non-commercial use and very easy to install. It installs just into your Windows file system.

    No way. It's built from scratch.

    OS9, never knew this even existed.
    think only with code.
    write only with source.
