Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

Windows 7 is quite nice, attractive modern OS that is preloaded onto almost all PCs sold.

Windows XP over a decade old, insecure, obsolete OS that maintained its dominant position because it was the only native platform or running win32 applications (which is most commercial software)

Windows Vista - Absolutely awful (I use it every day and it is an utter misery,) when compared to the expectations of the day probably the worst OS ever made).

So obviously now - post Vista - its a good time to buy a new PC or upgrade your OS
