For me this is a tie between two os's.

Lindows aka Linspire 5, oh how I hate that OS, I mean it was never completed properly, buggy and down right unstable. I suppose charging for the whole "click and run" thing didn't help.

How can I forget Windows ME, I thought it was the most, uselss, unstable piece of cr@p that Microsoft ever came out with. Kept on crashing for no damn reason, although I must be grateful some of Windows ME's (decent inovations) went into XP.

Whats the worst OS you have tried?

I'd have to say... Linspire/Lindows, I tried that for 2 hours and was completely sick of it!

Exactly my opinion, only different...

MS Windows Millennium, then Vista... I really hate the search feature in Vista, it doesn't work worth a sh*t, it is cumbersome and it is slow...

At this point I will have to throw my vote to Vista as the worst OS. I had ME and really didn't have much of a problem with it. Vista is another animal all together :P ;) ...talker. :talker:

~Changed topic name, 'worset' isn't correct English. 'Worsiest' ain't either, but it explains that it's even worse then worst!

Whoa- you read my mind, my picks exactly.

I had a terrible time trying to set up Linspire- and ME, everyone knows about that.
You were right, there were some innovations with ME- they just were in the wrong OS.

I don't think saying Vista is fair- final version isn't out yet. Hey, but doesn't the RTM release this week? Or is it next? I really want to try the final version before I make a decision. :talker:
