    The Operating Systems by Windows were the only ones I have ever used so they are my favorite. Out of all the windows Vista is my favorite since it hasn't really given me any problems.
    I'm going to start using Linux in my work laptop soon though because everyone in my course uses it so all of the lectures are on Linux

    I guess Windows, since it's the only OS I've ever owned. My old high school ran mostly Macs, but I wasn't too big a fan of it and had already gotten used to the Windows interface long before using a Mac. Still though, Windows 7 isn't all that great.

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    Vista hasn't given you any problems? Windows 7 isn't all that great? what is this i dont even

    o_o

    /not_cereal I suppose Windows 7, mainly because it's what I primarily use and it's not exactly a pain in the butt or anything. On the other hand, having been fiddling with Linux as of late I've started to see the advantages and I'd have to rate that fairly high as well.

    Bleh to Mac though. Apple OS for the fail.

    Windows 7, I love the Mac-style dock at the bottom.

    MacOS is alright, I like it for photo/video editing.

    Linux I could never figure out. =/

    I've used windows most of my life, but at my school we used macs. I liked Macintosh a little bit (it's only good for graphics stuff, and even then...), but Windows XP was by far my most favorite operating system ever.

    Nothing that worked on XP (a.k.a. a ton of stuff) worked on Vista :|

    I use both for different reasons. I have windows on my toshiba and obviously MAC OS on my Macbook pro. Two function differently but do what I like.

    Personally I like my windows XP. I've had it for years. It's simple and to the point of being easy to navigate. Mac gives me a little problem here and there but it has more advanced features than windows does.

    I was surprised too, most reviews have said that Vista is full of problems but apart from running some old games like Star Wars: Racer, everything seems to work alright. Even my graphics design programs run smoothly so far.

    Windows! It's fast, you can download any software/programs, it's easy to fix and easy to use.

    I had a Mac desktop before but sold it because it was slow.
    In terms of graphics, iMac is better than windows but in terms of operations and speed etc, Window is the best. I've never tried Linux... `_` not interested to it.

    I suppose I like windows since my desktop that I made is just a Win7 OS.

    All games that support OpenGL (almost all Steam games) run fine without extra effort required on your end, or don't require above DirectX 9.0c won't try to stab you in the face. If you just want to play games, Wine will suffice, but obviously if you want bleeding edge Crysis bloom and HDRI until your eyes dry up, then yeah those features are only supported by those libraries of DirectX 10+ which only Windows has native support for.

    I'm not going to say linux is the BEST for gaming, but if you WANT to game then going linux doesn't mean you CAN'T game.

    The thing with Linux gaming via emulation is that best case scenario, it works but it takes up more CPU then running in native Windows (Generally, with older games it's entirely possible the losses from emulation can be countered by Linux being able to be made lighter then Windows when run in the background), worst case scenario either it doesn't work and you wasted 2 hours searching through forums trying to make it work or it works (barely). Both problems are circumvented by just using Windows. Hence my statement that I using my gaming PC to game, ergo Windows. I didn't state that it's impossible to run emulators and force PC games to run on non-Windows systems. It just adds unnecessary complication.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.
