  1. result:
    windows xp is fastest
    windows 7 is fastest with completed features
    windows vista is slowest with completed features
    windows 10 is slowest with implemented features, a lot of bugs, slowest store and simplest menus😧

  2. Honestly Microsoft, with the amount of revenue cashed in, surely a stable design can be achieved by now without needless encumbrance to users for the sake of innovations. I trembled at the thought of Windows 12 and how ridiculously backward it will be, yet to be forced upon users! I am still having to resort to XP as I am now.

  3. What I think of those systems:
    1st Windows 7: It's stable and it has a nice design.
    2nd Windows XP: The design is old (it's from 2001), but it's very faster (install it on a netbook)
    3rd Windows Vista: SP1 sucks, SP2 is stable but laggy, and the design is very awesome, same for startup
    4rd Windows 10: Startup is very slow, and it's very unstable as a OS (six bsods on two months on my gaming pc. Serious? My PC has got 16GB of ram and an Intel Inside Core i7). Windows 10 is trash, 7 is the best
