1. Windows 7

1. Windows 7

Windows 7 is the best OS from Microsoft I have ever experienced...
Easy to install... Crash free... Fabulous Graphics Support for HQ Games.. And more...
Windows Vista is the worst OS from Microsoft...

I think it was the second OS I used, and I continued to use it until about a year ago. There are no words to describe the beauty of this operating system. Companies tend to get the seventh iteration of their product right - Mario Kart 7, Final Fantasy 7, iPhone 7- and Microsoft proved that they can do it too.

Win 7 is still the best by a small margin. Win 10 works and runs well but is still a bit buggy, a bit slow in responding to user input, and it is very difficult to navigate through the hoops. With no Aero effects, limited color options, and with no choice in accepting the wise updates that MS chooses to send everyone (Regardless of the type of PC they own), parts of this OS look like a step backwards.

On the up side, the search function is remarkable even though you sometimes have to sort thru the results to find the right one. Once you have climbed the learning curve for using this OS, parts of it are actually pretty slick. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a pretty solid 8.

Very simple to install and better UI also best security.
Very good themes.



Good if you are a windows user, but you will end up better using Mint instead.

This OS is for not good, not bad PC users. You will get the hang of it in a few days.

Simple, pretty, reliable, and open source.

Along with Linux Mint and Zorin OS (which, tellingly, are based on Ubuntu), it's the most user-friendly Linux distro out there.

For me, this is the only operating system I can get any real work done on. It's free, fast, reliable, stable, secure and has everything I need as a developer. Everything that windows has is also available for linux under a different name. All free, All legit. It's as easy and simple as windows to use and also gives you access to the more powerful features if you wish to use them, unlike windows which shields or plain prevents you from doing what you want. No constant updating, no trying to force you to do everything a certain way (their way). Looks nice too. Why more new computers don't ship with linux ubuntu installed? I don't know. 10/10

As a Linux operating system, Ubuntu is completely free to download, install and use. Out of the myriad of Linux OS out there, Ubuntu is generally considered the most user friendly and stable, especially for new users (partly due to a simple instillation process). It uses less system resources than many leading operating systems so you can use it on an outdated or budget PC and often seems faster or more responsive than other OS. Other pros include better security, plenty of customization options, community support, and a regular OS update schedule. It's my primary Operating System on my home and work computers.

3.Microsoft Windows 1.0

3.Microsoft Windows 1.0

Over the years, I've used a few different operating systems, with my first being Windows 95, my first home computer being 98, using Mac OS8-10 at schools, using Windows XP, windows 7, and then finally 10. Out of all the os' I've used, 10 has become the best operating system of all. It's easy to use, fast, attentive, responsive, and is the first operating system I've used where I don't worry about crashes or software becoming damaged. It's very attentive to what I need and after using it for years, is the best one I've touched and hope we keep it for longer.

Windows 10 should get at least 3rd Place...

Newest version of Windows and it has a few tricks up the sleeve...

Can connect it to the XBOX console which might not notice if an older user...Applications Savvy such as LibreOffice, Fresh Paint, Notepad++, Movies and TV, and Microsoft Edge make it more inviting to be the newest of the kind. Some features should be more snappy which is a plus for Windows 7 to keep ahead too as it has no such slow time. Windows 10 is a definite keeper too though as much progress has been done with applications and the overall looks of it very cool and respectable.

The best modern Windows OS. I like the Aero of Windows 7 Love the Luna Visual style of Windows XP. But I can't ignore the damn hot fluent design. Even though the Start menu of older windows was better I guess Windows 10 one is the best. The only issue with this OS is the Update experience for me

I'm not sure which window is the best. So far I like 7 the best but I haven't even tried 8 or 8.1 as they seemed like a step backwards for a gaming system. I have tried windows 10.

At first it seemed OK but in a few months it developed so many bugs that were out of left field and left me spending hours trying to get my sound back, or just stupid things like you couldn't delete files you put in certain folders. I hated it. All the bugs sneak up on you, and they are not the kind that are easily traced down and fixed. Windows has made it near impossible to install 7 on my Samsung 950 pro the procedure is apparently unknown buy anyone. They really want you to switch to 10 to totally end your privacy and not be able to control your own OS. People who like 10 are either forced into it by hardware demands or are imbeciles.

4.Windows XP

4.Windows XP

Old and Faithful. As a late end XP user, I got to say this computer has not only been a large portion of my early life, but will continue to be as such for a while. It's familiar, it's easy, it's that middle ground between new and old, it runs several old programs along with several new ones, and it doesn't DO ANY BLASTED UPDATES EVERY SECOND. It's the King!

I'm serious! My Media Center Edition XP from 06 is sturdier, longer lasting, and even runs better than the Win10 laptop I got 2 years ago. How the devil Windows 10 got to 3rd place on this list is beyond me, at least with XP, I can see why peeps love it. They say new is better, but in some cases... it's really not! (7 is okay though.)


I feel nostalgia plays a big role on how a lot of people this about this OS. Yes, it was revolutionary, and security was great too, but the UI was a turnoff for a lot of people, it might look nostalgic but the reality is that it was just, terrible! I think a lot of people referred to this as the “little tikes” Windows. Server 2003 fixed this problem though. Maybe this would be good for your kids?

Given that Vista was so universally panned, I stuck with my XP system... even after support ended. (I was of course extra careful to ensure adequate malware and firewall protection.)

When eventually forced to buy a new system, I managed to obtain an already-out-of-date Win 7 Pro system and was *very* careful to ensure that it didn't auto-update itself to the loathsome and privacy-breaching Win 10...

This didn't alter the fact that to one who knows XP well--and has extensively customised it to his satisfaction--Win 7 is pretty vile, lacking many of the best features of XP and imposing some of the worst elements of Vista. In fact its only advantages are (a) easier networking and (b) it's not as bad as Vista, 8, or 10.

I like Windows XP but my real favorite is Windows Vista. People may not know it but Windows Vista sp1 or Sp2 and Windows 7 are really the same thing. I read a PC mag once and it said all they really did is change the name because all of the critical reviews from the trouble people had with Vista when it first came out. So the truth is it's the same different name.




Other devices with Android include Android TV for televisions, Android Auto for cars, and Wear OS for wrist watches, each with a specialized user interface. Variants of Android can also be found on game consoles, digital cameras, PCs and other electronics. Most Android applications are written in Java and as of August 2020, the Google Play store has over 3 million Android applications published.

Just like Ubuntu: Simple, pretty, reliable, and open source.

It's also much more feature packed than the competition (yeah, good luck finding emulators, Linux terminals, custom launchers, or alternate app stores without jailbreaking your iPhone).

Android has seen a number of updates to its base operating system since the initial release. Each version has had a code name and these are confectionery-themed and in alphabetical order; the first one was 2009’s Android 1.5 Cupcake and the latest version of Android is Android 11, that was released in September 2020.

Google Play is the Android storefront where you can shop for apps, games, music, videos and books for your Android device. It offers both free and paid apps. Any items you download from Google Play will also be available on other compatible Android devices you've connected to your Google account.

6.Windows 2000

6.Windows 2000

As opposed to the makers of other operating systems, Microsoft requires its customers to invest the most in their computer hardware: a faster processor (the CPU), more internal memory and a larger hard disk. Microsoft have always maintained that this is due to all the extra functionality that they've added, as demanded by their customers. Actually, few people make use of many of those features, yet everyone is still forced to contend with the additional overhead that is the result.

This was the OS my first computer used back in the late 2000s (it was used at the time). More stable than its predecessors, it has the perfect amount of "old-school cool" from a modern standpoint but was nifty as heck at the time, and there are still some features I miss as of this writing in 2020. I love how simple everything looks as opposed to the flashy, "mobile optimized" operating systems of today. I also like XP and 7, but I have to give 2000 the gold.

A lot of home users had it even though it was meant for business use.

Why? It was very good for its time, while its home equivalent, Windows ME, was as far from stable as you could get.

Even though 2000 came first, support for it lasted until Windows 7 became popular. Windows ME support was given the axe by the time Vista came out.

Honestly the best Windows OS. Yes, better than 7, XP, and 98. It was stable, had an awesome UI (though kind of replicated from 98) and lots of support and good drivers. NT did this OS perfectly, and helped a lot with the Y2K scare.

7.Windows 8.1

7.Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 is a Underrated OS. Windows 8.1 is what Windows 8 should have been.

The biggest complaint from people that dislike this OS is the Metro Start Menu. MS made a big mistake by not having a ditching there classic start menu for the metro start menu. By then the high ground was lost in public's mind to extent majority never gave it a fair trial. Most people don't even realize that you can install 3rd party programs like classic start and never see the Metro Menu again.

Windows 8.1 is more stable and bug free than Windows 10 and it handles Memory and Disk Management much better than Windows 10 from my experience. These factors make me still run Windows 8.1 today and I'm not planning on upgrading until MS stops supporting it.

Windows 8.1 got a lot of flak, but it is better than what I expected back in 2013. In fact, Windows 8.1 is one of the most underrated Windows, besides Windows 1.01 (which did not get the love, but deserved them). And to make this even better, Windows 8.1 is even more stable than Windows 10, which came after.

Not as bad as people think! Yes the UI is terrible for a desktop setting, but I can see it working well for mobile devices and maybe even laptops, oh wait, it did! Everything else about this OS was, meh, however if you’re a Windows 10 fan keep in mind that a lot of 10’s UI stuff and features came from 8/8.1.

So easy to navigate! Everything you want is accessible right at your fingertips!

Can't find it? Search it by typing right on the screen!

Need fun? Check out the 500+ windows games that comes with it!

Need tools? The included windows apps is right on your start screen!

Too slow? Simply navigate your way around your PC world by a swipe and a click with your mouse!

It may seem different at first, but isn't that with all the new tech stuff?

You control it, you own it, it's the all new latest windows!

8. Windows XP Professional

8. Windows XP Professional

First off, Stop telling me how old Windows XP is and how I should upgrade to the latest OS when you know Windows XP is the best operating system Microsoft ever created aside from the security issues it always had. If you keep it clean, and updated, it works. Then Microsoft started making really crappy software. You already know about Vista. Then they tried a little harder with Windows 7. Windows 8 is just pure junk. It's actually another laughing imitation of Windows XP with annoying tiles and missing a lot of XP's convenient configurations. I would rather upgrade to Ubuntu, but they are lacking on the the software side, and let's not even talk about Apple, Inc right now. People are going to continue to use XP, just like there are still people who use Windows 3.1, Windows 95 & 98. They need to START MENU to the creation of software like the stability and usability of XP, take away that tile junk like in Windows 8.

If your a computer professional XP wins hands down. It is the most flexible and easily configurable OS ever made. don't believe me? just day to day file deletion become a real issue in 7, 8 and 10. User controls interfere with general work, can't do this, can't do that. And the new Metro, what a real zero. For those mind dead nimrods Facebook, twitter users and those hooked on social media with an iPhone stuck in their ear the newer operating system are right up your alley. People who actually do real work with computers have and will always like XP the best.

I agree with just about all comments. XP is by far the best OS Microsoft has developed. XP was stable and easy to use, OK it maybe have been based on a old base, ie DOS, but what the hell it worked and worked well. With Windows 7, which I upgraded to a couple of months ago due Microsoft stopping all Support and updates for XP, I get freeze ups, loading things takes longer, it's Needs an idiot guide open 24/7 to really get round it and find things which were easy to find in XP, many progtramms and games I#ve used daily on XP I can't even load them let alone use them.

Microsoft would rather get People to spend Money unnecessarily than look at what their users really want, not what they (Microsoft) want.

Bring back the Support and updates for XP and activate it again!

Runs outdated software that I have come attached to. For example Finishing Touch (Primax) TIFF editor from the 1990s which gives me functions and results that are not achievable in Photoshop; and if they were, Photoshop is more complicated. As I edit a lot of images and merge and make collages of images, I want to keep Finishing Touch, so I can continue to work with this simple but effective software that does not work on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Furthermore the ability to format text using Outlook Express (no need to be connected to the web) is great. I did not discover this ability on Windows 7 and 8. There are even more advantages. But these are the main points for me why I will keep running XP on a separate, isolated PC for the next 10 years. XP beats Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 which were conceived because Windows had to renew itself. Yes, for the average PC owner these later operating systems are OK, but if you are daily working for hours with many different programs (and ...more

9.Mac OS X Leopard

9.Mac OS X Leopard

Mac OS X Leopard is a MAJOR leap for Apple. It's very good! The only problem I have with it is that Apple doesn't support it anymore; so I updated to Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It's almost just like Mac OS X Leopard and best of all, it's not obsolete!

Very easy to use and it even supports adobe flash which is very nice this is the best one yet!

Awesome very simple and reliable better than windows

I like it ver

Pity it's not supported any more why does apple change every year rather than update

I just love mac os x leopard

Simple reliable and supports adobe flash player BEST EVER

It's a pity no one uses it anymore. It was v. good. Apple has discontinued Leaopard. So sad. Sierra is bad.

It is easy to use. It is better than windows

Don't need reboot forever, just open it.

No idea but I want to who is better

10.Arch Linux

10.Arch Linux

Arch Linux is an independently developed, x86_64-optimised Linux distribution targeted at competent Linux users. It uses 'pacman', its home-grown package manager, to provide updates to the latest software applications with full dependency tracking. Operating on a rolling release system, Arch can be installed from a CD image or via an FTP server. The default install provides a solid base that enables users to create a custom installation. In addition, the Arch Build System (ABS) provides a way to easily build new packages, modify the configuration of stock packages, and share these packages with other users via the Arch Linux user repository.

Arch Linux ARM carries forward the Arch Linux philosophy of simplicity and user-centrism, targeting and accommodating competent Linux users by giving them complete control and responsibility over the system. Instructions are provided to assist in navigating the nuances of installation on the various ARM platforms; however, the system itself will offer little assistance to the user.

I have always found Arch Linux as a DIY (Do It Yourself) operating system. From installing to managing, Arch Linux lets you handle everything.

Other OS' customizability pale in comparison to Arch Linux's customizability; you only have to install what you need, making it the most versatile modern operating systems you can run. Pacman provides a fantastic experience for installing applications without the need to scour the internet in search of a download. The likelihood of getting a virus on Linux is practically nonexistent, and Arch Linux can run lightning fast. The OS is also updated frequently via a rolling release, and the process of updating one's system is quite unobtrusive.
