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