I like Windows 7, it has nice graphics and that is what i mostly appreciate , not that much of the functionality of the OS.

But I am with Windows XP at the moment.

Linux is legally free? Are you serious?
So far, I have Windows 98, Me, XP, and 7, but I think XP is the best among them.

Yes. Yes it's certainly free. Things don't have always to cost Your money or freedom like most things in the IT unfortunately do.
Here You may ask what Linux is.

So on topic: The best OS for me would be one, that does, what I want. So far I have not found this one, but my Gnu/Linux system is so costumizeable, that it reaches almost the top of my exceptations. The bad side at it would be, that You can break it, if You are too adventurous! (Remember: M$ breaks itself :P) And if You don't know, how to fix it and don't have a backup of Your '/', You have to do, what an M$ user has to do -approximately once a Year... √ (And unfortunately I am an adventurous type and often try 'cool new apps' or games.)

Chart about the point of view of computer users.

And I shall eat my hat, if there are Mac users in this forum...

Two screens? That is so old already! Almost all Linuxes have two or more screens. I vote for Linux, but I stay with Vista because of games.

2. Wow! hidden icons.
3. old
8. My internets have that one too.
1, 4-6. And what is that supposed to mean?
9. If You mean 2 (physical) screens; it's nothing peculiar, tho awesome.
If You mean 2 (logical) desktops; this one is really old. (1989) And the one implemented in the X window system is much better, when WP is right.

Here is my opinion:

Windows:
Positive:
- Good for games
- Compatibility with major software;

Negative:
- Price
- Often slow
- NTFS just sucks
- It's bootloader only detects Windows systems
- bloated.
- The Windows updater only updates Microsoft-software
- Every new Windows version needs more and more RAM.

Mac OS X:
Positive:
- The design?

Negative:
- The price (Macbooks cost $3000 or something)
- Extra hardware needed
- I heard that even Linux got more software

Linux:
Positive:
- You can do what ever you want with it
- Much easier and cleaner software-management than under Windows (updates whole system by one command)
- Most advanced kernel ever
- ext4 > NTFS
- Most of the supercomputers use it.
- Programming is much easier
- Excellent for Hardware from Stoneage
- Compiz kicks Aero's ass

Negative:
- Needs time to fully maintain
- Not so much games

Many games work only on Windows, but a lot will work on Linux and/or have Linux versions(I once tried to play SavageII on Linux, and it always crashed. I downloaded Windows version, played through Wine, and it worked O_O).
Also Linux is free and I heard some versions are OpenSource, so you can freely modify it, for example to make closed windows burn, etc, and if you won't find effect you want, you can code it yourself. It's also a lot better if you have low-end computer, because it doesn't take much CPU power.

The best solution:
Two OS' on one computer/laptop!
For Example, i have Linux and Win7 on my computer.
That is a good solution for guys which want to play games and have a OS for good filemanaging!

Linux of course, but Windows when it comes to gaming.

(even though you need a moster PC to play on Windows 7 because it eats half of your specs.)

Windows FTW!
I currently prefer XP, for its monstrous compatibility with games. And the fact I can have Windows 7 and Vista visual on it! So why buy the bugged Vista or the not-so-compatible 7 when you can have their gorgeous look in the really-compatible-for-everything XP!? I even managed to get Vista's sidebar (I don't know exact name) on my XP!

Windows 7, since adobe software and microsoft software doesn't work under linux.

And also Windows 7 > Windows XP, because I can work MUCH faster on windows 7 due to the nice features.

+ XP is much (much[much]) lightweightier!
But since I tried out a recent os (Xubuntu running this), I will never work again with that old hag. :p
