  1. LMDE (I prefer the Xfce edition. #1 because it's rolling and based directly on Debian Testing)
  2. Linux Mint Main Edition
  3. Debian Stable (2 & 3 were a real toss-up. I finally decided on Mint being ahead for the numerous repos by default, and better suited for a day-to-day desktop. Debian will never EVER give you problems however.)
  4. Ubuntu (I guess I can't leave them out, but I cannot stand 11.04. 10.04 and 10.10 were really good though)
  5. openSUSE (I'm not really a fan of RPM packaging or Yum, but the openSUSE team consistently makes the best KDE distro available).
  6. Windows 2000 (By far MS's best and most stable OS. I had a 2000 box running for 6 months once without a reboot, and then the reboot was only to apply an update that required it. And it didn't have all the "phone home" DRM crap that modern MS OSes have. RIP)
  7. Puppy Linux (Can't be beat for bringing ancient hardware back to life)
  8. PCLinuxOS (Another really good KDE distro, based on Kubuntu)
  9. FreeDOS (The best way to wax nostalgic with all those old DOS games everybody loves)
  10. MSDOS (Hey, it was the first OS I ever used. It sucked but I loved it and it got me loving computers)

Almost all Linux :|

Yeah. It's an opinion-based question, and in my opinion Linux is by far the superior OS right now.

I love how all the ridiculous situations (i.e. 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7... well 7 actually doesn't sound all that bad.. lol I get to keep the hardware right?) are all better than Windows 8.

rofl! Happy 4-1 indeed!

I think this question would be better suited as a Top 5 rather than a Top 10, because many of the given answers are from outdated, virtually useless Operating Systems. Top 5 for me...

1) Mac OSX Snow Leopard 2) Mac OSX Lion 3) Windows 8 4) Windows 7 5) Windows XP or Mac OSX Leopard
