    I love it that noone thinks to add Win ME.

    No...I'm not being pedantic, its just that if I try to trace the lineage of windows in my mind I always jump from Win 98 to 2000 forgetting ME........

    they are really different lineages though. 98 came from 85, 2000 came from NT 4.

    Maybe its just because I personally went from 98 to 2000 bypassing ME. I hated ME, and still do..... Its possibly the lamest of the Windows range. I found 98SE much better....... Just my 2c

    Also, ME technically came out a little bit after 2000.

    Cool Amiga lives on.....

    Just look at KDE for Linux... obviously based on Workbench. Except workbench looked better! All linux guis are horrid things. They have a long way to go before the reach anything thats user friendly.

    I suppose the BEST of would be a mixture of things...

    win9x front end. Simply the easiest and best looking gui around.
    *nix beneath the gui for sheer power....

    At the end of the day, my fav os has to be OS/2 Warp. i went from a 386/ win3.1 system to a P1 90mhz with OS/2. my god!!!! what a difference! Now theres was an operating system!

    Unhappy

    Oops, I have commited so much errors, first, Win 3.1 is not a OS, just a shell, I forgot to mention WinME, sorry for those who missed it, if only a moderator could try to change that...

    Oh, yeah. The one that has only one vote. Just kidding. I'm sure it's a great OS. What are the benefits?
