Linux Mint Gets Ranked

Postby 12padams on Sun Dec 16, 2012 4:28 pm

Hey everyone! I thought I would share this video with you that my mum and I made to rank the best 3 operating systems and worst 3 operating systems. Basically she has spent about 20-30 minutes performing similar tasks on 12 different operating systems made from 1985-2012. She has chosen the top 3 and worst 3 operating systems out of those 12 tried. And yes... Linux Mint made one of those lists ;)

She tried the following operating systems:
Windows 1.01 (1985)
Windows 3.11 (1992)
MS-DOS 6.22 (1994)
Microsoft BOB (1995)
Mac OSX 10.2 Jaguar (2002)
Joli OS 1.2 (2011)
Windows 8 (2012)
Ubuntu 12.10 (2012)
Elementary OS Luna Beta 1 (2012)
Kubuntu 12.10 (2012)
Zorin 6.1 (2012)
Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon Edition (2012)

Hope you all enjoy the video ;)

Please note the clips of her trying operating systems within this video are heavily shortened. If you would like to watch the the full experiences you can check out the unedited versions on our youtube channel OSFirstTimer. You can also check out the operating systems she tried that didn't make either of these lists ;)

Nice video. That one Microsoft Operating System looks like something crazy hard to use. Who in the world would want to study a book that big to understand how to use the computer. I would never want to use that kind of computer, unless it was all downloaded into my brain. We aren't there yet, so I'll stay away from that kind...

Zorin OS is a very good one. When I used it, I was impressed, and I installed it on my dads computer when I got him to switch from Windows Vista to Zorin. So far, he likes it, just because it's fimilar, and it works right out of the box. He can use his printer, and get online, and do everything he need to do. And it does not give him the Blue Screen of Death. Yes, he had that problem. Something Windows is knows for.
