Default Favourite Windows?

Hi everyone. What is your favourite version of Windows?

Mine is probably Windows 98 Second Edition since it's cheap, easy-to-use, relatively modern, and user-friendly. Also, I have heard that it is the best operating system for gaming.

Anyway, I am looking forward to your replies...

I also liked Win 98 SE. XP sure is nice though with all of it's easy to use features and endless PnP.

I don't like Windows ME either. I've got the CD's for it, but I don't think it's worth the time to upgrade. That's why i'm still using Windows 98 Second Edition.

Anyway, Windows 95 may look outdated to some but what would we be doing without a taskbar? Still using program manager? LOL. It's a good thing Windows 98 came along. Some of you may have forgotten, or are simply too young to know this but Windows
98 was a massive improvement to Windows 95 on all levels.

Can't say I'm thrilled with MS apon learning they allow the NSA to illegally break the constitution and spy on you but my favorite version of windows has to be Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 but for pratical uses I prefer Windows XP Pro x64.
