Most Overrated Operating Systems

Vote for an operating that has too much praise also it does not mean it's bad.

The Top Ten

1 Windows 10

Some people argue, that Windows is the best operating system; I DISAGREE.

There are WAY too many capatability issues, based on computer hardware. Even to the point, where if I WANTED a Windows computer, it would have to be a single-board computer, from NVIDIA! (One that can run Windows! )

Honestly? Why can't there be computers, that work within stricter limits, for obsolete PCs...much like video game consoles?

The uninformed like to believe the "Windows 10 is the fastest version ever". This, however, is simply false. Windows 10 is the most bloated version to date, with preinstalled apps, "telemetry", and more. Don't even think about installing it on older hardware with the assumption that it will be faster- it won't. Stick with Windows 7 and older, even Windows 8.1 is better.

I feel like Windows 10 is more overhated than anything really. I actually like this OS but I highly recommend you download and install Classic Shell/Open-Shell, ShutUp10, and Winaero Tweaker for the best experience with it though. - PerfectImpulseX

I Prefer Windows 10, Because it's The Best For Gaming!

If You Downgrade To Windows 7, Its Rlly Not Good For Gaming, You Might Lag Al Lot.

2 Windows 7

It's one of my favourite OSes, but XP is MUCH better in my opinion. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

It's still the best Windows though - darthvadern

It's voted for the best just because of the Aero theme and is Windows. - 50

3 Windows XP Windows XP

Sorry boys, but can't you see that the os is DEAD?

The sprites and graphics are so nostalgic for me though - darthvadern

Everyone seems to say it's the best operating system. I can see flaws, too less security, - 50

I loved it too and I will admit that I sometimes miss using it because I grew up with it, but it’s been unsupported for years now and people are still using it when it could cause their computer to run slower. - 3DG20

4 Macintosh OSX
5 Kali Linux

Some script kiddies think they can hack using Kali Linux. Don't fall for these people who think that Kali Linux means hacking. - 50

People need to learn that Kali Linux doesn't mean hacking, Kali Linux isn't for stealing data, that's illegal - 50

6 Ubuntu

I have some big nostalgia for this though, I love this one to be honest, BUT you can't play video games on it (but let's be real video games aren't everything) - darthvadern

Had to use an outdated version to use ROOT properly. You really gotta do some digging sometimes. - PositronWildhawk

There are better linux distribution out there, people vote for this because it's the most popular linux distribution. - 50

7 Linux

Linux rocks in my opinion - darthvadern

It may be underrated outside of TheTopTens but why is most people in here seem to be obsessed with this. Linux community is sorta toxic. - 50

8 Windows 95

The start menu and the taskbar isn't a big deal. I can live without it. - 50

9 Windows 1.0

It wasn't the first OS that started the GUI as everyone says it did. The OS the actually started the GUI is probably Macintosh 128K (which came out in 1984) - 50

Aside from being the first Windows operating system, it’s not really overrated, in fact, both this and Windows 2.0 were quite hated due to unstability, but although it’s nothing compared to XP, 7, 10 or even 8.1, Windows 3.1 had a lot more hype and praise than this. - 3DG20

10 Linux Mint

I dislike this one seriously - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 iOS

Everyone loves it despite the lack of user accessible file system. You can't download things over the internet very easily or get real production work done on this. There are numerous other problems! - url8bit
