Windows The Windows 8 release Preview has been released, so go out and get it, test it, and wax lyrically, or complain loudly. I'm installing it as we speak, so no word, thoughts, or impressions from me yet. Like it or hate it, at least have fun, folks.

You left out Windows 2000. I still consider Win2k to be the high point of Windows OSes.

"High point" which was quite flawed in its innocent and pristine approach to the web security, for example.

And anyway, the things nice about 2k were mostly brought by NT 4.0, few years earlier. You just had to not care about gaming (well, DX at least) and USB (easy, back then).
But 4.0 wasn't hip in its time the way 95 or 98 were (oh the irony), plus it was a bit before its times in RAM requirements (still, lower than 2k).
