Default Re: Do you dislike Windows XP?

I still like Windows XP, but I prefer Windows 7 now. I used to prefer XP and had it on my desktop, but now I run Windows 7 on both my laptop and desktop. I would prefer to have XP rather than Vista.

This brings me to an interesting point, your preferred order of MS Operating systems?
Don;t mean to hi-jack this thread and it's still on topic so here goes.

What i would install on my computer right now:
Windows 7
Windows XP
Windows 8
Windows Vista
Windows 98
Windows ME / 2000
Windows 95

What i think in terms of "greatness" if you will:
Windows XP
Windows 7
Windows 98
Windows 95
Windows ME / 2000
Windows 8
Windows Vista

Windows ME / 2000
Windows 98
Windows 95
Windows Vista

That is what I would choose. I put Windows 7 first because it defiantly looks a lot better, and as soon as you get used to it, it has many more features. Windows Vista is going at the bottom because I used to have it on my laptop and it came with it, and right from the start I didnít like it, I only got windows 7 last Christmas.

You've put ME / 2000 above 98? That's a shock?

Well I'm 14 and when I was using ME/2000 I was about 5. I have only ever properly used 98 on a virtual machine. What does Windows 98 have that ME/2000 doesn't?

i take it that you know what Ubuntu is sense you are not asking about it.
Ubuntu uses the interface gnome as default, just like windows uses Explore. you can change the gnome interface with another one. in my case i like the interface KDE more then gnome, especially Gnome shell, which is default in the newest version on Ubuntu.
so it IS ubuntu but it is just called Kubuntu by everyone, because it looks allot different then standard ubuntu and you can actually download ubuntu with with KDE already as the default interface. that download is called Kubuntu and not ubuntu. so that is why it's kinda like 2 different OS'es, but still really isn't.
