Windows 7 voted best netbook OS
Over at LifeHacker, the guys asked their readers to share what their favourite netbook operating system was. From the comments, they created a poll with the five most popular operating systems. While Windows XP was mentioned by some and is found on most netbooks, it wasn’t one of the top fives. Instead, it came down to Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Jolicloud (all of which are free), OS X and Windows 7.
From 13001 votes, Windows 7 rose above the others by almost 10%, with it being the favourite for 36% of the respondents. Next up was Ubuntu with 27%. Both Jolicloud and OS X received 12% but, OS X had 58 votes more. Linux Mint fell under 10%, with a total of 8% choosing it. Users were also able to choose other but, only 5% did. I personally would agree with the results. I’ve tried XP, Ubuntu and Windows 7 on several netbooks and have stayed with Windows 7 on each of them. What about you guys? What would you have picked, is Windows 7 your operating system of choice?
