Your choice of operating system will vary on purpose and softwares you want to run on your PC. So far Windows has created an easier interface for most people that is why most of our applications are compatible to run under this operating system. Eventhough, windows has gained much popularity than its competitors, it does not hurt to try other available OS in the market. As an experienced PC user, I personally choose to use linux operating system - ubuntu in particular. Despite the tedious task of installing some of their apps, Linux has created some way to bridge the gap with Windows OS in order for users to share files between two different systems. Moreover, the linux files system is less prone to viral and malware attacks that installing a security software is not much a requirement as of this time.

the best is linux butt in the windows OS u first get windows XP then windows 7 and the worst is windows vista windows XP take's a low cpu usage and therefore it's nice to run it with windows 7 it's still low in cpu use and works fine butt it's a little slower then windows xp and windows vista..... u better stay away from that OS it's slurping up your cpu and make's your pc so slow,i don't know wy they made it butt it's a yoke off a operation system.

Try windows xp professional. It is stable than Windows 7. But take note you have to take a look at the requirements needed to run this operating system.

I think the best operating system is Linux, and they have Ubuntu now which is more user friendly.I have heard Windows 7 is good too but I haven't tried it yet. So far I have been loyal to Windows XP and I am quite contented except for occasional but quite attacks by spywares.

I have always been a fan of windows. Yes, I've used Mac before. Grew up before Windows became well-known. But, Mac always moved to fast. Developing their OS faster then the adaptive world could catch up. Eventually no such technology existed that enabled a blind person to use their systems and Windows with ASAW, ASAP, Jaws, Window Eyes and other screen reading programs became the favorite. As well as screen reading, Windows also has programs for screen magnification, on-screen keyboards high-contrast options and more. While windows continues to upgrade its OS's, it's allowing screen readers and other technologies to catch up. Just almost every program is designed with windows an in mind, and rarely is a program exclusivly for another OS. Sificed to say Windows is going to stick around. Now, I know you're looking for other options... but those are my views on Windows.
