OS WAR!
« on: January 08, 2015, 12:58:36 pm »
I'm on Windows Vista >.>

(yes I know this computer came with it and we never bothered upgrading it)
Vista might be my favorite windows operating system. I know it has its flaws, but its definitely the cleanest, most visually appealing, and has the best taskbar by far.

You can bring back the old taskbar on newer versions. And 8/8.1 actually looks cleaner. :P
I'm actually digging some changes they made since 7 (and no I'm not worshiping ms anytime soon, I have windows solely for the purpose of gaming. :P

If factor in that Linux > any Windows then you're wrong.

Btw can we really say we're drifting off topic since there's no topic ? :trollface:

We're quite a bunch here to run Linux on our dekstops/laptops on a daily basis. If windows was better we wouldn't have switched. :P

Oh also, if you have an Android phone, it's linux too.

Im using windows for my desktop too, but i also use linux (ubuntu) for my laptop (which i use as server since its screen is broken). My fathers desktop uses linux debian, but it has the WORST user interface (gnome 3 i believe, the one without a desktop).
Also: android best mobile os

Hmmm gnome 3 sucks balls yes, but other desktops like KDE (though this needs a pretty beefy machine because omg resources), Mate (gnome 2 fork), or Xfce are much nicer. I myself use a custom desktop environment though, because I prefer to use a tiling window manager and I use terminal based software most of the time. :P

The lack of a classic start menu is the only reason that makes me hate Windows 8 and 8.1. I'll skip straight to Windows 10
