Default most stable OS

what is in your advice the most stable windows OS?

I think that at the moment windows XP reached a good reliability, despite its uncertain start for this reason, I won't upgrade to Vista until I won't see the SP1 around

What is your favourite windows OS?

XP is about 60x more stable than Win98SE.

XP gets my vote on all categories.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

I agree. Previous win versions were totally unstable, apart Win ME but you needed lots of tweaks to make it not crash often.

I can remember that the first time I bought windows 95 (first version, sold on 12 floppy disks ), it used to crash during the install!

I actually use Windows Vista RC1 right now. It is stable and it runs very well. I have only 1 application that doenst install right.

but XP would be the correct answer for most people.
