I have to go with XP Pro. I've used every Microsoft OS released to the consumer market, my favourite for years was Win98SE I switched to all the new OSs but always switched back to 98SE. It took a lot of courage for me to finally decide to switch to XP Pro especially after seeing WinME. But I couldn't be happier, and I would never go back to 98SE. XP Pro offers everything that its predecesors offered and much more. I have to say that aside from the annoying updates for updates, it's a mighty fine OS. Hey it's Microsoft, you can't expect perfection.

Have gone through 3 mobos and 2 CPUS, and Countless other hardware.

Currently I am Running an
Nforce 2 Asus A7N8X Deluxe
Athlon Xp 1700+(1.47) OC to 1.83= 2200+
Radeon 9500 Pro
512 MB PC 2700 Corsair XMS

XP Pro gets my vote. Stable, clear type interface, excellent driver support, easy networking configuration, to name a few.

win xp pro to me is the best ive used 95,98se,me,2000 pro and xp pro is the easiest to set up and use the only down fall i have with it is its so picky about devices that it will support.It doesnt like alot of the older stuff especially if it not top of the line devices.

I'd have to say Windows XP, too. It is so stable; far better than Me was. It actually runs faster on my 1.2GHz Athlon box than did Win98, but it runs terribly slowly on my 366MHz Celeron. Both have 512MB of RAM.

I like to play games and i notice a big difference in load times and overall game performance.

Also i love the driver rollback feature.
