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.

I've used a lot. BUt i'll stick with my windows for the most part. Actually i like dos a lot too. I think it's really fun. BUt then again my first computer was a dos machine about 13 years ago (:

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.

>For more technical stuff I prefer OS'es which are not listed. Like VxWorks, OS9 and QNX.<

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

QNX? Is that some sort of Unix / Linux O/S? If so, wot is it good for, is it free, and where can i get from?

Shiro

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.

A Linux/Unix that's faster than BeOS? pfttt...

No way. It's built from scratch. :)

I like Windows, but not Microsoft.
I like Be inc., but not BeOS

Linux is gnu which is absolutely correct but linux was derived from unix. If i'm wrong correct me, but if it wasn't for unix, there would be no linux.

Windows 3.1 - you must be nuts....

Windows 95 - Yuck

windows 98/SE - Decent for the common home user, unstable in most respects.

Windows 2k - Very nice

Windows 2K SERVER - Decent security, more beginner then NT.

Windows NT - Kick ass server os

Windows XP Pro Corp - My personal fav. I love it, never go back

Dos - Still the best for its uses

Linux - Depends on the version, i perfer redhat myself

Unix - never used it

those wacked ones - same as above.

Linux. It has to be Linux.

I saw Windows XP ( allthough it has a cute graphical interface ) work on a 1Ghz 32 VRAM 256 RAM system and kill ALL the resources, and it couldn't do half the things a simple Linux Os could...Not that i mean to offend anyone, but before i tried out XP, everyone was praysing and glorifying it, while linux...well...let's not stretch it... You get da point.

Have a nice day, coders.

I do everything on Mandrake (Linux). I rarely use Windows, mostly on games.

I don't want to continue on an argument, but I don't like BeOS because it doesn't support my hardware :p
I know they have good intentions, but still... :D


BTW: It's not free...

This poll needs to be changed, stuff doesnt make sense, solaris is unix, and there are many other operating systems out there.

Me too. One day I hope to get all my games working on Mandrake using Wine.

Hehe, okay. That's fair enough. (More of a small user and developer base than an OS flaw.)

>BTW: It's not free...<

Be looking for a release of OpenBeOS in the next 6 months, though.

Shame u didn't choose some different OS's!

Windows 2K is good - possibly the best MS ever did - although DOS 6.22 was very good.

I use SuSE linux 8 and it is fantastic - better than anything M$ can do!

Having not really used anything but an Intel based motherboard, I have no idea about other types of OS - although I did like Mac OS 9!

I didn't vote - just to mess up the poll!!

DOS, Windows, and Linux are not the only OS's that run on Intel hardware...
