Isn't Win 3.2 the Chinese version? (we've had this exchange before).

http://toastytech.com/guis/win32.html

DOS 6.22, coupled with Win 3.1 was a great combination, but for your Poll, I would choose Win XP, SP3,
as I haven't got round to installing Windows 7 and cannot comment thereon.

Under 'Other', I like the Linux Mint distributions, but have only used the Live version, so far.

I think I can add other OS if you want? Just tell me? I did say it was just for Fun?

Anyone can add other OS's I think, if I do it as Topic Starter? I certainly don't want to upset anyone. Just Post what you would like included?

Sorry only 10 are allowed, but two could certainly be removed?

I doubt if ever they get a Vote in this.

BTW, I changed the Pole to WIN3,1, to suit your taste, petewills, let's just have some Fun?

Ray.

Unlikely Win ME is gonna be deluged with votes as well. It'd have to be a very comprehensive poll to cover Linux properly.
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

The best OS is the one that works as closely to the users expectations, with minimal to zero difficulties for the user. One size does not fit all.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

I could maybe add Dual Boot?

I had a magic System with WIN98SE and WINXP that was wonderdull.

Maybe others have had similar?

Dual booting was not my best experience. Do you reckon i should use 2 hard drive for dual booting Ray? Also any good tips for dual booting?
