  1. I personally think windows 7 is by far the best version of windows ever made. I’m using it for a couple of years now and I never had a problem, unlike previous versions like 98 and XP.
    But I also adore Linux, especially Ubuntu, its a completely different animal, a one that works, good.

      1. Atish me too hated windows Vista and i had used it for just for first week from Its Launching.
        Window Xp was awesome I was my first ever windows experience but now am using windows 7.windows8 is Also an awesome OS but it has many bugs so i have installed it on my Virtual Machine.

    1. You can say that Windows 7 is the best system from Microsoft’s suite.I used Mandriva and Ubuntul linux distro and i can say that if i have to chose between them i would stick with Ubuntu. To bad that there are not that many games available for Linux.

  2. Hi Atish,

    Nice to see you here mate 🙂

    I just have an old PC which is 11 years old and runs XP SP3 on it 🙂 I Don’t have problem with using any kind of Windows and I like look and feel of Windows 8 though.

    I think it’s a matter of knowing what a specific OS can do and we can utilize it better. Even Vista is a fail, I know some who loves it and still use instead of Windows 7 and 8.

    Have a GREAT week, Atish and Praveen 🙂

  3. Everything’s still murky for me at this point, but then again, I’ll take a second spin at reading this article. I’m not at all that familiar with operating systems.

  4. I think my liking for windows has stopped at windows 7. Windows 8 is definitely out of my patience. I have two laptops and I prefer using the old one than the new one I bought. Just because of the OS.
