    That's good.
    I lost my good old UTSTARCOM modem after installing the BSNL firmware even though I followed the instructions.

    I use Windows XP and its the best OPS version of Windows till date, Windows Vista proved a total setback for them whereas Windows 7 although good as compared to Vista but still can't beat XP, later being more user friendly and economical.

    I use windows 8 on my laptop. And Android on my smartphone. I like comparing the two so I just have them. I tries obuntu but found it too difficult to use. I love mac-os I think it is cool but if I ever found a laptop using Android I would go for it.

    I am on Windows 7 and pretty satisfied with its performance. But I think it is a bit heavy on my computer. I was planning to switch to Windows XP which is said to be light on system. Then I came to know about Ubuntu, a Linux based OS and heard a number of good reviews about Ubuntu. Now I think I should give it a try. My friend is already using it and the only complaint he reported was that sometimes he was not able to open an Ubuntu file in Windows OS even after using the save as function.

    I have been a big fan of Windows for quite some time now. I think in India majority of the computers run on Windows only.

    My current PC came with windows 8.1 (I would much rather prefer if it came with windows 7.) However, ever since windows 10 came out in July, I have upgraded to it as it was free. In my opinion, the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 has been great, there's now a proper start menu now, and the OS no longer feels like you are using a tablet at times. It also slightly improved boot time, and overall performance, both in normal activities, and also gaming.

    For me, Unix is a proprietary operating system originally developed by AT&Tís Bell Labs. For years, this was the most used operating system in the enterprise and powered most servers. There are several different ďbrandsĒ of Unix, maintained and marketed by companies such as IBM, Oracle and HP. Although these different brands share a common code base, they arenít identical. Since the turn of the century, use of Unix has been waning and itís no longer has the dominance it once did.

    My Desktop has Windows 7 - Home Premium and my lapto has Windows 7 - Home Basic. I did some repairs and I returned to Windows 7. Well, I notice few differences when I compare Windows 10 and Windows 7 Performance.

    Ubuntu is a good OS and I love the interface too. However, Windows is like a generic operating system as it is the most used so I'd rather use Windows. The laptop I am using is still under Windows XP. I planned to upgrading it to Windows 10 but the free upgrade offered only do accept either Windows 7 or 8. To upgrade to Windows 10, I should first upgrade it to Windows 7. But it takes a lot of process and I don't have sufficient time to do ir so I stick to Windows XP. But my tablet was at Windows 10 already so I am familiar of how it looks.

    Mainly, I use ubuntu because it is safer, quite compatible with most Windows applications even though they are not the same applications but do the same job. Also because it has great technical support from the developers, and also of users who use the system, and kindly offered to help in any way you need because they have many years using the operative system, in second place I think is Windows XP.

    I am currently using Windows 10 but I am considering to try Ubuntu. I am using Linux to my laptop and it is so confusing to use. It will take time before I get use to it.

    Our old laptop's OS is ubuntu and it works well just like Windows. The documents I made in ubuntu works well in Windows as well. Nevertheless, I never known before that it is safer to use. Maybe, I will change my OS to Ubuntu if ever.

    I'd like to try Ubuntu since everyone agrees that it is safer to use than Windows. I've used Windows since I started using computer so I haven't really much explored Mac OS and Ubuntu. My laptop is currently running Windows 7 and planning to upgrade it to Windows 10 anytime soon. I think I'll settle with Windows until I get a mac book because this is the only OS I'm familiar with. Does anyone know what is Ubuntu's minimum computer requirements?

    When it comes to OS, I upgraded to Windows 10 a while ago now and I've not had any issues and things are running fine.

    As with any major change, it does take some getting used to but it's worth upgrading for those that haven't done so yet.

    Is it the free upgrade from Microsoft? Good to know you finally upgraded. I am yet to upgrade on my lappy as it is still at Windows XP.

    Good to see your feedback. I am still at Windows 7. What Is the major difference you can experience in Windows 10? Hope their new upgraded Internet Explorer 'Edge' is also a part of the package. I heard a lot of good reviews about Edge. I think Windows 10 will be requiring more CPU memory than other versions of Windows. But it's worth to try it as you already mentioned.

    Microsoft is also planning to develop Windows 10 as a mobile platform. I think Chinese Mobile manufacturer Xiaomi has already declared that they will be using Windows 10 in their forthcoming models.

    Regarding the Microsoft Edge, it is a great one. It is my main browser in my HP Windows tablet. I prefer it even more than Google Chrome which is not working well for me on my tablet.

    For me, windows 10 drastically improved load times, and boot times of my computer, and increased overall performance. It also looks gorgeous, compared to windoes 7, and it takes the theme of windows 8 and applies it to the functionality of windows 7. Regarding edge, it comes with windows 10, and its a very good browser, I'd even go as far as to say that it is on the same level as Google chrome.

    I do agree that Windows 10 boots very fast, which I think Windows 8 does too. I just couldn't get myself as I still prefer Windows 8. With regards to Edge, I even prefer it now than Google Chrome.

    Agreed that Windows XP users has reduced because of new versions. Surely, even Windows 7 users had reduced too because of Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10.

    I am using windows seven because it is user friendly and I can manage my files without any bugs on it. I don't want to use windows 8 or windows 10 because some of the functions are buggy and it is not user friendly in my own opinion and basing from using it. I switched to Windows 8 and tried windows 10 but I found out that Windows 7 is still the best version of windows for me.

    Have you re-installed Windows 7? Windows 8.1 is a great one, better than Windows 8. Not really into Windows 10 but maybe it will improve in the long run. I still love Windows 7 however.
