I use windows xp professional, it is really a user friendly operating system. You can easily handle and print your documents.. I preferred using Linux (CentOS) for my web hosting, i use it as my main server because it has a superb security, and it cannot be infected by a trojan or viruses.

I prefer to use only windows sp only.The reason is, that it is user friendly. Few months back, I tried for windows vista, but I found very difficult to respond to the lot of interactive windows, that are raised during our session. Of course, it is having high security features,but it is also a time consuming process of reading and responding to those windows. Also as we are familiar with windows Xp, from the beginning, I feel this is very comfortable to me. I did not tried of Linux so far.

I've never used anything else but Windows. Ok, that's a lie. In school, I'd use Mac laptops. But when it comes to my personal computers, it's always been Windows. My older desktop has Windows XP installed on it. The new laptop I'm on now has Vista. This is my first time using it, but I have to say it's pretty slick. Heard about Windows 7 but it hasn't been released officially and all that, so I'll stick to Vista for now.

Yea it's ok. It's not perfect though, it does have some annoyances. But overall, it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

I think REDHAT-LINUX is goodest for the modern generation.It is very easy to use and has more security than any other.The main defects is that noone knows loves in free softwares.But i assure for making with linux. I had also used Xp.It is also good.

There are three kinds of operating system for common user: windows, linux and mac os X. I use windows xp and some linux release such as ubuntu, red hat , fedora and so on. Windows is simple, you can finish most of requirement in it simple , so I think windows series still the most popular system for common user . Linux have more stability and support mutli-user at the same time, so It always be used as server. Mac os X is the production of apple corporation with pretty graphic UI and other cool function but not very utility, I also didn't use it before . I prefer ubuntu linux, one side because I am a software engineer working on it usually, the other side because I think it is free and is developing very quickly.
