Haven't checked 8. Happy with 7.
Don't understand people seem nostalgic for 95/98, those were incredibly unstable and BSOD hell in my experience. At least NT and 2000 had a stable kernel, though not suitable for gaming. With XP SP2 Ms finally had a decent mainstream OS, although it was filled with security holes. UAC in 7 fixes most blatant issues though.

Windows 2000 was probably the most stable OS that microsoft ever built in my opinion, when it came to gaming, especially back then, i stuck to win98. Of course im like you phenom, i've used all the OS, including my short stint on windows ME which was just horrid, i uninstalled it after about 2 month's of messing with it and reinstalled 98. vista was ok, XP got better, windows 7 is stable and windows 8, well, ive had it for over a month and have had NO, and i mean NOOOOOOOO issue's what so ever with it. So give me more time and i may just think windows 8 may be very stable

I'm rather enjoying Windows 8 once I set it up to look like Windows 7.
Sometimes I'll drop into Win8's Metro start screen for fun but only for a moment since I can't stand the feeling that I'm using an over-sized Windows phone.

Mainly the only reason I'm sticking with Microsoft at all (Here comes a weak excuse!) is for the programs like Adobe photoshop and uh.... Adobe photoshop... I could use GIMP and cut the chain of bondage to MS but ever since Win7 came out I don't feel like my cd-rom tray is about to pop open or my screen resolution is going to drop to 640x480 unexpectedly (bitchslap anyone?).
It was fun but I don't have time anymore to just fvxk with people like that anymore

It finally feels that Ms finally is doing something right with Win7 and I'm starting to lose my hatred from so many years of unneeded formatting and BSODs.

I've seen the BSOD in Win7 once I believe? It was a while ago and not my PC I was working on though... and have yet to see the BSOD in Windows 8. In the earlier versions Microsoft had me basically debugging the BSOD error messages I had them so much!

Windows 7 is crazy fn stable. The only way I can BSOD Win7 is when I'm running [email protected] and hammering cpu endlessly @ 100% usage w/ a high ass overclock. That don't count though, thats clearly operating out of spec & out of normal levels of every day usage,even during heavy cpu loads in gaming its fluxuating from 90-100%.


I know for a fact Microsoft got their shit together with Windows 7, and I forsee me being just as stubborn when I was using Windows 2000 professional I totally ignored Windows XP until 2kpro's recieved its last update and eventually I was forced into a upgrade to XP, I then was comfortable with XP all the way entirely through Windows Vista lifespan,,,, I was relunctant as shit to install Windows 7 but I can not imagine ever using Windows XP again,and I feel sorry for anyone still using it.

Same here.

Anyone still using anything earlier then Microsoft Windows7 should watch this video, even if you do run Windows 7 or even Linux. This shows you how dummy proof hacking has become. You can literally take over whole networks in minutes.

Go ahead and watch the YouTube video below, It's only 2:32 minutes long. I'll wait.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zz39iHrFGDY

Welcome back to QuakeOne.com, If you're running Win95,Win98,win98SE,win98ME or windows XP that video will demonstrate just how vulnerable you are to some punk with a wireless adapter enabled laptop and some free time.

If it's your main computer you should strongly consider upgrading to Windows 7 or the equivalent of it. Don't say we didn't warn you!

@Phenom: I have always used a router connected to my cable modem, and used a software firewall, at the time it was Sygate personal firewall 5.5 I believe... could I have been "hacked" just as easily?

Any time I went to "shields up" I always got the "stealth mode" validation and thought I was okay?! Just curious...

Taking necessary precautions and keeping your software uptodate helps. But never underestimate the sheer stupidity of some people when it comes to computers.

Shields up is a cool tool for checking how your routers functioning on the WAN definitely but just because one source gives you a thumbs up or green light doesn't mean you're 100% completely safe.

The only "100% secure" computer is one that is turned off, un-plugged and locked up.

I know this one person who had me drive across town to fix their PC because it wouldn't "turn on"... I showed up, looked at the monitor and turned it on, problem solved.

Some people need not worry much, but there are PC illiterate PC users out there believe it or not!

Can you believe it!? Someone who doesn't know how to code their own html site?

Yeah, we all have those man! My ex's Mom told me once her sound stopped working after I fixed her printer problem, I drove over there to plug the speakers back in that she unplugged with the vacuum cleaner!!!

I don't ever worry 'bout being hacked... I know how to install/reinstall or just run from a damn CD/DVD disc. I've never used virus software in my life. It's almost as bad, maybe worse, as having an infected computer

Heyyyyyyyyyyyy, I don't know how to roll my own damn HTML

depends on what your using the system for. For quake 1, xp would be your best bet, I have win 7 64 , and its fine for my music audio, but win 7 has a different mouse feel for pointing 1 to 1 ratio, the mark c fix doesnt really make mouse movement feel like xp, also there is no poll rate adjuster program for win 7, or at least that i know of,
I have used poll rate adjustment for older mice such as mx518 and ms intellimouse, set to 500 hz,
