Personally, I was always a fan of Windows 7. besides the sometimes slow loading times, it was efficient and had a neat business-theme to it. I tried Linux out, and it wasn't my taste. I could see however why people would like it

Windows 7, as it's got the cleanest UI for me and it does it's job for me without many issues.


windows 7 or even 8.1

Dislike 10... not sure why they change so much around... I dislike change for the sake of being differnt.
Feels like theres little to no purpose to much of it, and it just frustrates.

I don't get why most people don't seem to share this opinion but I find Windows 10 much better than Windows 7.

You forgot to add Windows 8.1 as it is vastly different and superior to Windows 8. Also, Ubuntu is Linux.

My answer is quite a bit more complex than just a favorite OS as it all depends on purpose.

Favorite OS for home Server: Linux Mint (latest stable.)
Favorites OS for games and productivity: Windows 10 (Windows 8.1 coming in a close second once the Start screen is removed.)
Favorite Server OS for Directory Services: Server 2012 R2 (Server 2016 is not mature enough.)
Favorite Server OS for non-Directory Services usage: Linux CentOS/Redhat.

Windows Vista is the prettiest OS

Windows 7 is the best general OS

Windows 10 is the best overall OS but also has spyware

Windows XP is the best nostalgia OS

I like Windows 7.

I really like Windows 10. It's pretty fast and also looks nice. I can't see myself ever going back to using previous versions of Windows honestly. I also like the "Windows as a service" approch to the OS, it's way better than starting from scratch every time like it was before.

Windows 7 or 8.1 were the best! 10 is utter garbage and XP was the worst I've used by far, got the 'blue screen of death' several times with that bastard of an OS...

I think Windows 7 was the only that didn't cause any problems for me but I have a soft spot for XP because it was such a huge upgrade from 98 and I used it for the longest time.
