Default best os ??

I really like XP pro and I had really tried to work at it to keep it.
After many different approaches to get to know this system better and buying a know how book on XP and a new hard drive etc.
The XP pro had fatal crashes that I could not recover my data from not once but a few times within a 2-month period. Maybe is my lack of experience on my part. And yes I had other OS system that has had crashes but I could always recover from them. But with win XP pro I felt helpless. I’m back with win 2k pro so far so good and I’m happy so to each its own if win XP had work for you then more power to you. I gave up on XP for now!

I used to have Windows 98 SE, sometimes it crashed about 10 seconds after logging on, sometimes, for no apparent reason, it just 'quit' a game right when I was in the middle of a mission and hadn't saved, and sometimes if I left it idle for an hour and went back to it, it was frozen

I think thats not the right question to ask when it comes to Windows, Whats the worst software Bill Gates has to offer?
