I think Windows 7 was the best Windows version ever. 2000 is #2, 10 is #3, XP is #4, NT 4.0 is #5, and 98 is #6. Windows 8 the worst version of Windows ever, Windows Vista is #2.
I love Firefox and Opera. I use Google Chrome only on Ubuntu, Chrome OS, and Android. I use Opera only on laptops, tablets, and smartphones, and maybe in a VM on an all-in-one desktop.
I use Bing as little as possible on Chrome. I use it on Internet Explorer and Edge, and I use it on Firefox and its derivatives especially Slimbrowser, but that’s just it.
I love Internet Explorer and I’m sad that many sites are dropping support for Internet Explorer. Basically everything about Internet Explorer is awesome EXCEPT that it’s slow and lacks HTML5 support. However… I am not a big fan of HTML5. It dropped some good features of HTML 4. Edit: Internet Explorer also lacks support for WebGL and WebAssembly. That’s the real downside besides being slow.
I prefer not to use base browsers, but their derivatives. I love Comodo IceDragon which is a Firefox derivative with vast security and performance improvement, hardly any slower than Chrome. I also love Brave, originally based on Gecko but switched to Blink. I’d use Brave on Linux especially Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS.
I use DuckDuckGo on Brave and Firefox. I also love StartPage, which I would certainly use on Waterfox.
I think Netscape was the greatest browser ever, before it was discontinued in 2007.
I think everything by Apple is awesome EXCEPT iTunes.
I only use iTunes on a Mac, and only use Apple Music on an iPhone or iPad. Not on Windows or Android.
I try to use Windows as little as possible for anything other than gaming and institutional and corporate use. I love Ubuntu and prefer it for laptops, physical on an Acer and virtual on an HP or Dell. I prefer Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS on entry-level and midrange servers and on tower desktops. I wouldn’t bother with Ubuntu enterprise computers. I think Oracle Linux is the greatest of all Linux distributions, and is THE BEST for cloud hosting, both private and public cloud.
I prefer Xen over KVM, especially for load balancing clusters.
I prefer FreeBSD over Linux for entry-level servers and certainly for network attached storage.
