To me best ones:
-Windows 98(&SE). for gaming and internet was ok(better than Win95)
-XP SP1&SP2.
-Windows 7. Probably the best Consumer Windows ever.
-Windows 10. Almost all LTSB and LTSC versions but not LTSC 2019. Don't like the consumer-versions(app editions) at all.

OK:
-Windows 8.1. It was just OK, better interface than original(still forcing apps)
-Vista. Could have been good, but it had always somekind slowness feature built-in. Which was fixed in Windows 7. If I remember correctly reason was in memory management. More memory fixes some of this.
-Windows XP SP3. didn't like, It had sometimes performance problems.
-Windows 2000. I did like this. But so old that there is no use for it->XP SP1&SP2 works better.
-Windows NT 4.0. Didn't use that much but it was usable OS.

Worst ones:
-Windows 95. original, don't remember much but it had problems.
-Windows ME. When you did get it working with right hardware configuration it was ok. Mostly awful crashing piece of...
-Windows XP 64-Bit. Only good was it had somekind 64-bit support.
-Windows 8. just that awful touch start menu kills this os.
-Windows 11. I don't like the user interface changes at all. I use a lot of right menu button from mouse to do stuff, no need to move hand to keyboard. In Windows11 you need to do more mouse button clicks. I know there is Explorer patcher which fixes/restores almost everything, but it is third party app->how long it will work with Windows Updates. Also unnecessary apps.
-Windows CE. This OS had its use cases but it is just awkward to use if you need to use it with touch display.

Don't remember/never used category:
-All before Win95.
-Windows RT.

I may give Windows 12 (last) change, when it is getting to public beta. But I think Linux desktop interfaces just feel better these days->Also there are those editions I don't like. One is KDE with those apps you can't remove because it breaks whole desktop->It is like Windows in this case.

The Linux-version I have liked the most is Xubuntu Core from unit193. There is no unnecessary applications for me. You need to install applications yourself, but atleast you get almost clean desktop interface.

Currently working with Windows 11 but just started.
Nah, so only judging by start menu? Windows 8 is far superior than 10 in the ui department, its got both tablet and desktop elements but they are neatly separated. On the other hand in windows 10 you are constanty running into tablet version of the control panel.

Windows 11 is clearly the worst, same issues as 10 but added even shittier ui. Windows 8 sucks too but only because it never gained DX12 support and overall never gained any major support advantage.

I was lucky to skip all the bad ones.

My history is: Win 3.11 -> Win 95 OSR1 (and later) -> Win 2000 -> WinXP -> Win 7 -> Win 10

I'm still on the fence about 11. It doesn't offer anything I need, it doesn't take anything I need away...

Windows 8 was the worst experience by far for me.

I've been on Windows 10 for 6 years and just started Windows 11.

I most fondly remember moving to Windows 2000 from 9x. Stability and better memory protection felt great, no more stupid bluescreens.
ME was ridiculous.

Windows 7 is deffently the windows I like the most. Windows 10 is alright, but not on pair with windows 7.

Vista is my all time nightmare. Windows 8 I was not happy with its layout and design. But Dit not have issues with win 8 the shot amount of time I spent with windows 8.it was just not my thing.

I have yet not tried windows 11, so can't really say anything about how I like it or not.

Lol I thought vista was awesome :D It was a little slow to instal from what I remember, but it was a treat :) Vista vs 7? I thought vista was better at first until 7 grew on me. 10 vs 11? 10 seems to bench a little better, and is more resilient to a bad overclock than 11 is.

With a question like "What Was the Best and Worst Windows OS For You? There shouldn't even be any debate, the question is just asking us from our own personal experience, which one was the worst for you, and which one did you personally like the best. :D

"For you"

Windows 8 was the worst experience by far for me.

I've been on Windows 10 for 6 years and just started Windows 11.
I mean windows 8 is basically same thing as windows 7, just some minor ui changes and tablet ui integration (which was neatly separated from the normal ui, except the start menu). Its in winodws 10 where some major downgrades were made, mainly no simple option to turn off automatic updates (shutup10 does the trick, but its a 3rd party solution), and the tablet ui got mixed with the normal ui. If you are in a desktop version of a program (lets say file explorer) and you want to go to control panel (standard version, not the tablet one), in windows 10 it doesnt really work as intended and you get tablet ui popping up when not needed. Windows 11 is a further ui downgrade with shittier ui.

best windows? it'd have to be 10. but 7 as a close second.

worst is 8. and it's not even close. I had to live with it for about 3 years before upgrading to 10.

Best was Vista Ultimate, it stopped needing to be reinstalled every other week. Win10 takes a close second.


Worst hands down was 98, susceptible to virus even with A/V installed, same for attacks windows firewall was the biggest joke at the time. W98 forced me to learn how to fix most windows issues, regedit gave me frequent headaches.
