OK, Lindows will work, too.
I disagree. Win95 imo was ok but clearly not up to the job for today. 98 was ****, Me was actually pretty decent IMO - the BSODs reduced dramatically over Win98 even though many people slated it saying 98 was better (no idea how that works).
IMO, XP was the ultimate though. Used by everyone from home users to huge companies, police forces, councils etc. It was a great all rounder, supported almost everything, could be adapted to do everything and was almost crash resistant.
Win7 is pretty decent too but the amount of people using it is still less than XP and that says something IMO. Even though I use 7 myself with minimal hassle, there are still some things that were easier on XP.
XP definiately has my vote as the best MS system. Even now many places are still refusing to upgrade from it and it was the first M$ OS that forced M$ to continue supporting it after their cancellation of support.
