For RAM limited systems, Windows 7 is a big no go.

Windows 7 = Way too user friendly for my liking, MS have made getting into advanced config so much of a slower process.

Well said, +2 on that.
I'm a big fan of Ubuntu as well. Easier for a Linux noob. Linux Mint too, for that matter.

+3 to what Exerox said. Try Win 7 with 4 GB of RAM and all the bells and whistles activated!

Does nobody remember Windows ME?? Best OS ever!! I still miss all that spontaneous, bright blue wallpaper I always got, even though it slowed down my pc a bit.

BSOD!!!

I used to use XP and loved it but now its just too outdated, once I started using 7 I can't go back because in 7 I have been using many awesome features and its just simple to use.

Win XP to me is the best in terms of stability and all that but Win 7 is cool with additional features and it's particularly great in synching.

Very true....

But for me, there is a BEST OS for something more specific task, function and use.

Like so:

For webhosting and web-related functions, i choose centos.

For my online banking and other online money transaction, i boot up my puppy linux and fire-up it's built-in browser.

For my media center pc or HTPC, i choose again puppy linux with boxee as the best os for it.

For my multimedia applications, i use mac.

For my gaming sessions, my top choice is windows xp.

so, IMO, there is no BEST OS, in general.

There really is nothing better they each have unique features. If you love windows: Windows 7 good if you have at least 1 GB ram, windows XP of not, VISTA SUCKS
Mac: MAC OSX Snow Leopard or Lion

You mean as a desktop OS? IMO they don't really compete directly these days. I say there's plenty of room for both

I am, however, looking forward to the final release of Win8. I like how it's been shaping up so far (minus the tablet style interface). Definitely liking the new explorer style.

When you fully customize windows xp and get it to run at about 50 on your ram then you truly understand what it means to have full control over your OS. It ran so smoothy and so quite and then windows 7 comes out and I need to upgrade to play games. So I now have both on my machine and it still runs fast as ever.

So in the long run I would say depends what your doing with your OS.

Linux Mint
Easy to use, familiar, fast, and doesn't benefit any monopolistic corporations.

I would have to say, for me, it's xp pro. I have yet to try win7, but I will be soon. I need to build another pc, not giving up my xp. I have a lot of games and software that use xp, and I am not willing to part with them.
