Top 10 Os's ?
« on: March 29, 2010, 07:48:19 PM »
10. VMS
9. DR Concurrent/Multi-User Dos
8. Windows XP
7. Amiga OS 3.9 (Can't say 4 never seen it live)
6. Unix System V
4. Mac OSX
3. Debian (Ubuntu or Debian itself I use all the time these days)
2. CP/m (all flavours including CP/m 86)
1. Windows 2003 R2 (work with it every day)

Sorry no. AROS or other as I have never used them in anger.

Have you used those OSs?  It really depends on what your criteria are.  If you are talking about usability today or about historical significance.  CP/M has tremendous historic significance but not much usability in 2010...

10)
9)
8)
7)
6) AmigaOS 3.9
5) BeOS/Haiku
4) Windows XP
3) Linux w/KDE Window Manager (a "good distro" with package management)
2) Windows 7
1) MacOS

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

Have you used those OSs?

Yes....All of them (as of part of my job for many of them)...ages me slightly ;)

10. VMS (Animal Feeds Software Development)
9. DR Concurrent/Multi-User Dos (Weighing systems software dev)
8. Windows XP (my job now systems admin)
7. Amiga OS 3.9 (Can't say 4 never seen it live)
6. Unix System V (Process control/weighing)
4. Mac OSX (Fun)
3. Debian (Ubuntu or Debian itself I use all the time these days)
2. CP/m (all flavours including CP/m 86)....Again animal feeds systems.
1. Windows 2003 R2 (work with it every day)

I didn't include others I've worked on , RSX (Pile of pooh), Xenix (fun but tosh), MSDOS 1 to 6.22 gave me my career a start but stopped my development side by Windows 95 (wasn't any good with Objects, only in recent years have I started to get my head round them).

Also didn't include purely rom bases OS's i.e Vic20/Pet and 64 Basic was good for teaching me basic in the first place.

Top 10 Crap Os's are

10. RSX
9. Xenix
8. OS Warp
7. OS/VS1 (But to be honest this was the first true OS I had ever seen and came on a handy 8inch Floppy inserted into a box the twice the size of a large filing cabinet)
6. Windows 3.1 (not really an OS i know)
5. Gem (Same again I know its not an OS)
4. Novell Netware
3. Kickstart 1.2 (buggiest thing I've ever seen Guru'ed me to give up and stuck to play games)
2. Solaris 2 onwards....could they have just stuck to system V and not mucked it up
1. Windows 2000 (Without exception the most unstable / Vunerable / worst OS I've ever seen and we still use it.....dam those tie in contracts)

Let go of the hate...

Regardless of the measurement, eight out of your 10 picks are inferior to WinXP (or Win7)...

I'm quite surprised at this one. I had a Windows 2K machine that was up for months on end (it only went down due to a power cut). I've always found it pretty stable in the past.

Are you sure you're not thinking of Windows ME? :D

Ummm, it's not hate. It's reality. The topic asked a very simple question and I answered it. In my world, there ARE alternatives to M$ products and a majority of my computing life since the late 70's, I have purposely avoided the use of them. I've used 3.1 through Win2000 and XP a little bit. No need to get into all the reasons why I don't care for 'em as I will never be "converted". Fact is, just because something exists and it's popular, doesn't mean *I* need or would want to roam with the herd all the time  ;)

Not sure of your point, but a top 10 OS list with no Microsoft contribution present is silly.

Save2600??  Are you attempting to have your OWN thoughts and preferences again???  :griping:

Please remain where you are..  The thought police will be there soon and you will be taken for reprogramming...

Resistance is futile..

NT4 was up for years on end, but 2k immediately you installed anything on top IIS, Exchange, SQL etc, those dodgy 16 bit apps that wouldn't die, down it would go. U could say it was the software on top but, whats the point of a platform that self destructs when you connect any number of users greater than 10 to it. AD was great, IRQ not Less than or equal BSOD was a common one, not until driver signing did we get away from that. Also the Chkdsk bug that destroyed you NTFS permissions was fun too. ;)
