Last week we asked you to tell us what’s your favorite Windows version of all times Which Windows Version Is The Best Of All Time? [MakeUseOf Poll] Which Windows Version Is The Best Of All Time? [MakeUseOf Poll] Sorry Mac and Linux users, this week’s poll is all about Windows, but even if you don’t currently use the most popular OS in the world, you’re bound to have an opinion in the matter.... Read More . True, we forgot to add Windows Vista, but even with that oversight adding more votes to the “None of the above” option, it didn’t come close to the two very close leaders.

Out of 1,642 votes in total, the results were as follows: Windows ME got 0.5% of the votes, as did Windows NT. Windows 95 got 1%, Windows 95 and Windows 2000 both got 3% of the votes, 4% voted for none of the above, and 6% votes for Windows 8. This leaves us with two options that together got the vast majority of the votes: Windows XP with 39% of the votes, and the grand winner, Windows 7, with 42% of the votes.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

The most interesting result in this poll, in my opinion, is that Windows 95 and Windows 2000 got the same amount of votes. Only goes to show us how underrated Windows 2000 was at its time!


This week’s poll question is: What Do You Think Of A Facebook Phone?

There are many rumors going around regarding the alleged release of a Facebook Phone Why The World Doesn't Need A Facebook Phone [Opinion] Why The World Doesn't Need A Facebook Phone [Opinion] Over the past year or so, rumours have continued to surface concerning the idea of a Facebook phone, a portable handset that will give the user direct mobile access to the popular social network. The... Read More .

If and when such a phone comes out, will you buy it? What do you think of the concept of a Facebook Phone? Is it merely a gimmick or will it answer a real need?

    A Facebook phone = A stalking device that you don't mind putting on yourself

    The mobile phone space is too crowded. If FB want to get into hardware, they should think outside the box. How about a social espresso machine? When you select your coffee it will say "5 of your friends are also drinking a latte right now!" "Connect with other cappuccino drinkers nearby!"

    Why not? We need this as much as a FB phone.

    Now the name is Facebook Phone?! If so, that's really a dumb idea! Releasing a phone under a social network brand!

      Was there a different name that was discussed? Anyway, if they do come out with something, they will probably make sure we all know it's a "Facebook phone", but it might have a different name since, as you say, naming a phone after a social network is not very appealing.

    I heard someone painted a mural inside Facebook's headquarters and instead of getting paid, they received stock that turned out to be worth $100,000,000. I feel sorry for everyone who believed in Facebook and bought stock and watched it go into the toilet (Facebook's wallets). Something tells me anything Facebook does such as a Facebook Phone, will again not be good for the people not working for Facebook.

    A few years ago, Skype released the skypephone through 3.
    I have NEVER seen anyone using a skypephone.
    A few years ago, 3 released the INQ range of phones, and I can't really imagine a Facebook phone being any better than an INQ - the INQ looks almost like a Facebook phone.
    I have NEVER seen anyone using an INQ either - and Australia is supposedly meant to have a significantly high Facebook penetration rate.

    I have an Android device and most of my friends have either an Android or an iOS, and I have never come across anyone unsatisfied with their Facebook experience on these devices.

      I didn't even know there was a Skype phone! I agree, though, a Facebook phone must have something very unique in order to be noticed, and that something is not Facebook itself...

    Android,WP7 and upcoming iOS 6 have Facebook integration.They're good enough to meet our needs.So,I think that if Facebook intends to have its own phone it has to bring a lot of innovation to compete with others and offer much value than others.

      I agree, it can't be just an OK mobile OS with tight Facebook integration. I can't think what they can do that would be better than all the existing options... but who knows, they've surprised us before.

    a Facebook phone? Well isnt Facebook just like Google now. First a website then a browser, now a phone. We'll see

      I think this is where they're striving. For some reason, Google and Facebook are rivals, even though they're not really doing the same thing. So if Google can do it....

    What's the point in a piece of hardware designed around a specific web site? Hell, why stop there? Let's roll out the Onion Phone, the MySpace Phone, the XKCD Phone... and, of course, the MakeUseOf Phone.

      I'd love a MakeUseOf phone! :) Seriously, though, I'm not sure the Facebook phone is really meant to revolve around Facebook (although I'm sure there will be very tight integration), but will simply be manufactured by Facebook. Or maybe just the OS will, who knows. Another way for them to make money, anyway. You can hope they know no one wants their website as a mobile OS...

    If it is under $10 price I would but if it's more I would not, seriously .

      i loved what you said.... i too at first thought it was a totally dumb idea...
      but now when intel said even some of the best smartphones have been unable to use their all cores to maximum efficiency ...and that some perform worse than before when all the cores are enabled ....

      so it could be that fb phones got it sorted out....
      but that does not mean i am going to get myself a fb phone...not at all if it's got the tag "facebook inc" written on it.....that's just lame beyond imagination to me

    You have got to be kidding me. Well, at least we would know who all of the idiots are just by looking at their phones.
