I disagree, this piece of toast that I'm eating is perfect.

It's perfect for *you*, *right now*. It might not be 6 months or 5 years from now. Just as it might not be for me.

Second choice would be XP, probably.

Too bad my 2 windows machines are still both Vista atm.

Why is 7 so low? Was it added later?

This thread started back in November 2008 -- a year ago. At the time, Win7 betas were just beginning to appear, but only through subscriptions & attendence to specific conferences. The selective availability would mean that most did not have it -- hence, no direct experience to make comments.

Threads have a limited self-life because forum members typically only respond to the latest threads, & because threads tend to be specific to what is/was happening at the time the threads were created.

I was running a 7even ReleaseC... .
Why? Well, My I-mate Windows Mobile smart phone.
I had no way in FreeBSD. maybe in 8-RELEASE ?!, And now some points

1- 7even RELEASE can't recognize I-mate, I must download Driver/App!
2- Outstanding: It eat/had 2 Slice/Part...!
3- I think that the best products of MS, still is DOS 5.0, It was realy practical those days (Masm, Turbo C, Turbo Pascal, NC 5.0, and of cource Bash 2 (not shell, It's a game.) ~ DOS 6.22
4- Can you find your way in a 7even system's control panel? or vista? on the whole XP is better
5- Windows was running on the top, until 7even's birth day, but it's a the end now, by two step, :OpenDriver, SVG.
6- By the way Desktop OS/Apps are at the end :
(Desktop/Workstations/Server/) -> Client/Server (in a imagination term, not a Network Engineering context)

For XP, let's get more specific. Which version? I prefer to use XP-64 on some of the newer machines which do 64 bit processing. Its pretty quick on something built to handle Vista. For any version of M$ whatsoever, I choose 2000 advanced server. Its stable, runs on machines with more then one CPU and in general just won't crash that often. MacAfee makes a nice anti-virus for file servers that may still work.

Of course, any user friendly version of UNIX like PC-BSD or friendly version of Linux is far superior.

I would say 'definitely not' ...
