    What's your favorite Windows operating system and why?

    What's your favorite Windows operating system and why?

    I think the best operating system is still Windows 7. It's the easiest to use, is compatible with everything, and still looks modern even though it's been around a long time.

    What about everyone else?

    Windows 9 sounds interesting, and could be the best OS yet.

    I think Windows 7 is the best operating system. It's easy to install and the graphics support is great for playing games. It's reliable and rarely crashes.
    Windows Vista was the worst OS in my opinion.

    I prefer Windows 7 too. Microsoft seem to have made things more complicated with Windows 8, though maybe I just need to get used to it. I generally don't see the advantage the Metro interface has over the old interface. Metro apps tend to be slower, and things such as the Skype app don't have all the features of the Windows 7 application.

    I like Windows 8. The design is much sleeker and more modern-looking than Windows 7, and I like the live Metro tiles that keep me up-to-date on news, weather, etc.

    I agree with you abc that Windows 8 looks better, but I think that in making Windows 8 Microsoft sacrificed functionality in favor of tablet-friendly design, when the real selling point of Windows has always been its functionality.

    I agree, Windows 7 seems to be more straightforward, but maybe we'll get used to Windows 8 eventually.

    I prefer Windows 7 to Windows 8 but I think that is because I am so used to it - I would probably find Windows 7 strange and difficult to use if I'd been using Windows 8 for years.
    I think people are usually stubborn and hostile to change, and this is why people don't like Windows 8. It's interesting that the new updates to Windows 8 seem to be focused on making it more like Windows 7!

    Windows 8 has some good points and some bad points.

    Firstly, it's much quicker to boot up than Windows 7 or older versions of Windows.

    I also like the start screen, as the tiles are much bigger than the Windows 7 desktop icons, and it's easier to find your favorite programs. You can also pin web pages and documents here. You can also search the start screen, which is quicker than looking through a long list via the Windows 7 start button.

    One of the cons of Windows 8 is the full-screen apps. I don't like these very much as they are slower to load are difficult to use for inexperience users. On the plus side, when you minimize an app it goes into a suspended state which means it doesn't use much memory.

    Another con is that Windows 8 can't play DVDs without specialist DVD software--unlike Windows 7 which has this built in.

    Overall once you have got used to Windows 8 it is not significantly better or worse than Windows 7.

    I think Windows 8 is the best Microsoft operating system.

    Here’s why:

    One of the most impressive thing about Windows 8 when you upgrade from Windows 7 is the boot time – only 7 seconds on my machine. Windows 7 seems to take forever when I use it now.

    Another good thing about Windows 8 is that you can easily sync all you devices/files. You can use One Drive to store important files and then access them from another computer.

    Windows 8 is also much better than Windows 7 if you want to use more than one monitor. The multi-monitor support is really good and you can run Metro apps and desktop programs simultaneously side by side.

    Lots of people complain about the lack of a Start button, but you can search any part of your Windows 8 PC easily, which is quicker than using the Start button.

    Another reason why people should consider Windows 8 is that if you want a tablet, Windows 8 devices offer lots of processing power. The only tablets that are really comparable to PCs in terms of power are Windows 8 tablets.
