    Is there a "cool" OS

    Surely there must be a cool operating system.

    I can think of some that are not cool

    Arch/ Linux is not cool, too geeky, explaining what the commndline is to your girlfriend is seriously uncool, let alone


    Windows XP/Vista/Seven7 are not cool, too common and even, many say Windows 7 is beautiful, but beauty does'nt ammount to coolness, too different things-

    So for me the answer lay somewhere between Windows and raw command line Linux, but not a Mac as Mac users have been proven to be snooty prciks.

    Mac OS X is referred to as cool, but I don't share that opinion. It looks neat which is probably one of the reasons for requiring thawing/defrosting.

    I think this is a rather subjective question as everyone probably has a different definition of what "cool" is to them.

    I think it really depends on what you do with the operating system...is that too generic a reply?

    Well, err, Linux really is the geeky operating system. So unless you find a linux that can do everything without a command line, your out of luck. Even though this isn't related really, i think that when ReactOS goes beta, it will be pretty dang cool. It's design is to run all programs, whether it's linux, mac, or windows. That sound pretty cool to me.

    cool != GUI
    commandline + geeky + archlinux + openbox + vim = cool
