I'm going to compare more operating systems in my virtual machine to have a more informed & enraged rant.So have you never experienced the joy of Win95 and ME?
Yet to experience: ... Windows 95, ... Windows 2000, ...
Windows 2000 & Windows ME are two different operating systems, I stated that I've experienced Windows ME.
And you doing these tests on a virtual machine? I take it that's why you keep going on about ram then?
No, I can clearly see the stats when looking at how much RAM XP takes up compared to Vista & 7. If they were better operating systems than XP then the extra RAM usage is understandable, but Vista & 7 are worse, so taking up more RAM is a kick in the teeth.
Physical Machine: Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista (Home Premium & Ultimate), Windows 7 (Pro).
Virtual Machine: Windows 98, Windows XP, WIndows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008.
I've never done 64 bit though.

Hah! It seems I've always been right. XP all the way!
I can't believe it took me this long to realise XP is superior. I still need to get the 64 bit versions though.

I have looked up some speed test and in most cases Windows 7 takes the cake, and for people who game Windows 7 is the best yet. I also like the whole SuperBar concept and it makes my dick hard.
Windows 7 looks good when put in front of Vista, it's still worse than XP. I heard IE9 was good though.

For the less that it does.
No to mention the easy search bar on the start menu.
Which is a small thing weighed up to the down sides of 7 to XP.
Yes xp is better to customise, but only little 12 year olds care about themes to make it look pretty.
I disagree. It makes it more of a personal computer. I gave mine a professional look, customising it doesn't mean making the looks important like in Vista.
But even then that is not what microsoft intended, that was because of haxorz.
Windows was and never will be created so that people can just mod it, it's created for ease of access, which it works PERFECTLY at.
The later OSs have more flaws than XP.
If you want a system for programming, modding, runs super fast, etc. Get ubuntu. Which is exactly why I have both.
XP is better. It's not just about how much you can edit, but also the fact that you can even edit the colour full stop. It's such a small thing that makes Vista & 7 that extra bit worse. Course; you can put the classic themes on, I like that part of Vista. But the classic 7 theme is shit & not classic looking.
