    I myself have been useing a win 7 build called LastOS7 wich has all the bells and whistles but seems to run a
    little slower then the standerd win 7. Overall I would say its a good OS Would say a 7 on a scale of 1-10

    Just wondering what OS you use and how you would rate it?

    I was running Windows 8 with a windows 7 start menu. I would rate 5/10
    I am now running Windows 7 ultimate which is okay better than 8. 7/10
    I'm going to try to install XP which is my favorite. 9/10

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on my 32-bit desktop. 9/10 runs pretty smooth.

    I enjoy using Win 7 than Win 8. I think if I had a touch screen than Win 8 would be a must.

    I use Mountain Lion, love it - it's simple and effective rare it 10/10 anyday :p

    I also have Windows 8, which I love - it's much more easy on the processor and a lot snappier, lacks a few things (one being compatibility) I'd rate it 8/10.

    Windows 8. It's a very good OS. It confused the hell out of me when I first got it, but now that I'm used to it, it works very well with me. I really enjoy charm. It makes it a lot easier to find what I want, rather than using the search bar on Vista/7 and the search function on XP. I also really like the exclusive games that I can get gamerscore for that actually go onto my XBL account. All in all, I rate it a 9/10.

    Windows 8 I use and it's fine for me, I don't use most of the new features on it I run it a bit like I did with Windows 7 but I like this OS a lot now.

    I don't have a touch screen but once I got past the limitations of not having one with the OS which is the reason I wasn't using it I found it to be awesome.
