There is lot of OS war with many opting for open source operating systems. What is your feeling on microsoft windows Vs the rest of the OS?

Hello yasaran, I am pretty comfortable with microsoft's operating system since I have been using them eversince my first time to have a hands on the computer. I have gotten used to its bugs and its always being targeted by virus, spyware and the likes. I understand simply because its business and all I can do is find ways to make sure my computer doesn't get infected with one. I think others OS like mac's and linux's are good also from what I heard and read. I have friends who are using them. They are very stable and less prone to bugs and viruses. I am in the process of trying out Linux's ubuntu OS, my friend told me that I'll like it. Also this OS's are free. ;-)

Yes thats right. With linux we get less bugs and less prone to virus, but sometimes drivers for some hardware are not made available for these os.

Aptitude wise I'm fairly comfortable. I can use windows pretty easily and better than most folks. However, I'm not comfortable with the security issues.

As I said in my discussion of an hour ago my favorite os is win 98. As old as it is I still like it alothough I use Win XP now...and am not crazy about it.

I am very much confortable with Microsof OS.I have Windows XP on my desktop.It is easy to use and very userfriendly.Also there is great help available if there is any problem.Linux is good OS but it requires some technical knowledge for use which is not the case with Windows.Actually Linux is far good than windows but slightly less user friendly.But if you learn some basic commands then linux is excellent.I a use linux sometimes at my work place.
