61 Microsoft Windows 3.1

The last Windows which didn't claim it's more than what it really was: a fancy toy. Lack of applications, crashes, loads of viruses, bugs, no real support, waiting years for device drivers... Win 3.1 was the most perfect reason to create Linux!

This where it started, true you had to upgrade Windows and DOS separately but you had fewer crashes and was easier repair, Win 95 and 98 weren't bad then we got xp through 8.1 with each getting more and more bloated requiring huge amounts of RAM just for the OS.

Very straight forward, and simple to use.

I love windows. Their own OS (operating system) I've got a windows 8 - 8.1 - 10 I love windows

64 Firefox OS

In the next while, I can see this operating system among Google and Apple. It could use some work, but so far it's impressive. It has a beautiful and friendly interface and uses lot's of web development language, so it's easier to develop for!

67 Windows 7.2

There is no such thing as Windows 7.2 because Windows 7 don't have 2 service packs. Windows 7 only have 1 service packs.

Dude, there's no Windows 7.2, but there is Windows 3.2 - BorisRule

69 BeOS

BeOS was almost a revolution in operating systems. If only it caught on. I was able to open and play 8 different movies at once on a 600mhz computer using this OS. Video card was an old Voodoo 3DFX card. For comparison, Windows98 could barely play one instance of a movie on the same hardware. BeOS was the future foundation for media based systems. If only it caught on.

Apple should have picked Be instead of NextStep to replace Mac OS.
