XP is definitely the best operating system out there (Microsoft wise, I have no experience with Mac OS), though I like 7 the best. Granted, it does have a few kinks, I love its fresh feel compared to the bland XP.

Vista... Oh, Vista.
Vista was the biggest disappointment to me. I hate it. It's so awkward and basically a sad attempt of an upgraded XP because Microsoft felt they were overdue for another operating system, but failed.

I've in the most part avoided Windows 8, simply because I've finally gotten adjusted to 7... But I may try it out soon. I haven't heard anything spectacular about it, so I may just stay with 7.

Please feel free to prove me wrong about Vista, otherwise it remains the worst.

Edit: I read the poll wrong and chose Vista, but I meant to choose 7. Oops.

Bro, Vista is allgoodz, I have never had a single major issue (BSOD) or any other OS error with Vista.

I think people just take what other people say without trying it for themselves. My co-workers enjoy Vista just as much as I do. You just have to trust it, Vista is OK. XP is better, but that is another thread all together

But Microsoft was in a hurry to release two service packs.

Do you guys wanna know of a "secret" easter egg in XP?

Okay guys

Personally Vista is fine, but a little too similar to XP… however, this comes from a person who thinks of a computer mostly as an internet box, so you can feel free to ignore my opinion on that one.

In Windows XP create a new .txt file.

In line one type "bush hid the facts" (without quotes).


Save it and re-open it.

It's due to a bug - Really, type any letters in the same formation and you'll get the same thing. Because of that bug, notepad can't save any assortment in that specific formation.

I heard this as "bush hid the truth" though.

Early versions of Vista sucked, badly - Install issues, hardware issues, a lot of stuff. They issues were fixed in patches, but frankly a lot of the stuff could have been fixed with another month of bugtesting. Vista was a decent-ish OS - Microsoft just put it out to market way to soon.

Still - Here's a intresting video about Vista.

Guys this thread has gone waaaaay too far off topic. I'm gonna have to stop this thread here, if you want a thread discussing operating systems then go ahead and make one but make sure you stay on topic and keep the posts of high quality.

Locked.
