Actually, Windows 95 was a significant improvement over Windows for Workgroups 3.12. Yes it had some failings compared to Unix, but compared to what preceded it there was significant improvement. Every OS out there falls short of being good if you compare it against an OS with different design goals (Venturing outside the computer world a ferarri truly sucks when compared with a dumptruck due to it's inability to efficiently carry rubble and tendency to catastrophically fail when you attempt to use it in more than 1 inch of mud). I realize I don't have a number that's low enough to qualify as legitimate on /. , but I also agree with DudemanX in that I have enjoyed using most of the Windows operating systems since Windows 95, though since 2000 I've spent more time on the server side than on the client side. I've also owned/used every version of the Windows Mobile/Windows Phone OS, as well as Blackberry and the occasional Android device. They all have their flaws and if you dig enough you'll find an ugly baby (Bugs/Lockups/Reboots/Poor signal) in almost every product during the first several months after release. All that being said, Windows Phone 8 looks like a pretty good setup, and yes I've run into some bugs with my Lumia 920, but I'm looking forward to where it is going.
