MS Windows 7 Ultimate
Advantages: Looks stunning, performs better than any other Windows OS, feels good to use, is reliable...
Disadvantages: Hasn't been officially released yet, is pretty expensive.
I have never liked any Windows OS, and have always chosen to use Mac whenever possible. I don't like the look or feel of WIndows XP, and while it works well enough, doesn't perform nearly as well as Mac. Windows Vista looks a lot better than XP, but performs absolutely terribly - so badly that I had to downgrade back to XP, even on a laptop with very good specs.
I've always run Windows using Boot Camp on a separate partition of the hard drive on my Apple Macbook. So, I could risk trying a new Operating System - if something went wrong, I'd still be able to use Mac. As soon as I could get hold of a copy in Windows 7, I got rid of XP and installed the new OS instead. It was extremely easy to install, a task which took around half an hour. After about 15 minutes of using it, I was in love with the Windows 7!
Contrary to any previous installation of Windows I've used, this one barely ever crashes, runs smoothly almost all the time, and doesn't give me a cramped/claustrophobic feeling every time I use it. It also looks amazing. Sure, the GUI (Graphical User Interface) is pretty much the same as Vista, but it does have a few subtle differences that make it a lot better, such as the task bar, which seems to be a little bit more like the Dock from Apple's Mac OS.
Compatibility issues that existed in Windows Vista with hardware and software I've tried are fine with Windows 7, it seems that Microsoft have just perfected Vista and created an OS that has improved on the looks of Vista and on the functionality of any of their previous Operating Systems.
I have only used the Beta version of Windows 7 so far (Build 7022 I believe), and even incomplete, this Operating System is by far the best piece of software Microsoft have ever created.
I'll even go as far as saying that Windows 7 is actually comparable to Mac OS X! This is something that I thought I would never say about any version of Windows, but I even choose to use it sometimes when it's not absolutely necessary - the feel of it is 100 times better than that of Vista or XP!
Summary: I would choose to use this over any other Windows OS, and so should you!
