Imo Mac has most user friendly interface then I'd say windows. Have used both for some time. I dislike Linux most, yes command line is powerful, but I like clicking on icons more than typing stuff even if somewhat slower.

I have also used chrome OS which was decent too ngl.
My personal ranking:
  • Mac
  • chromeOS
  • windows
  • Linux (have used mint,Kali, Ubuntu)

i used Mac OS for a long time but now it just feels like shit for some reason, with Linux you can customize almost everything with different desktop environments, etc.

imo that's problem with Linux, when it breaks, finding fixes is often big pain.

:yes: This is why I hate linux. Customizable my ass, try to install another DE and you are into the angry command line trying to fix your login screen or drivers.

Mac is clean but too minimal but very user friendly. Windows is good if you are a power user as it is pretty extendable thanks to a ocean of software, although no powerful command line like Mac and Linux.

Also forgot to add when I used Linux drag and drop did not even work for applications, JFL.

for me in end, I prefer using Windows for general use as good balance between everything. Mac for dev work since no bs operating system. Linux almost never as my work doesn't require it, I know for some server type work it is better but Mac works well enough in my case.

Linux by a huge margin.
Why? Because you can simply customize it freely until it becomes the best one for you.
Linux>Windows>Mac>Shit>Aids>ChromeOS
I believe that's the correct order.
I'm going to be honest, I never used ChromeOS but I have zero positive expectations from Google so I will take your word for it.

Yeah lol nothing as infuriating about making hours of search about some random bumfuck problem when you just want to use your computer for normal shit.
Part of the reasons why I can't switch to linux in full.

Mac is technically more refined but it's often too streamlined at the expense of effecient use. For instance, it provides no way to right click and 'cut' a file (= copy + delete). The only way to acheive this functionality is via drag-and-drop which is a gay limitation.

Anyways I picked Linux (this applies to any *NIX or system that uses X11) since you can put whatever GUI you want with it.

KDE and XFCE have the best modern interfaces (I like XFCE better since it's lighter and simpler to use). For a classic interface that I use on my older PCs I have Window Maker, Motif WM and IceWM installed.

Trinity DE is another good one.

As for other OSes.

Windows 2000 Classic Theme is my favorite on a Windows version. I also like Luna on Windows XP and Aero on Windows 7. I don't like the modern Metro theme.

On MacOS I like the interface of classic MacOS 7-9. Modern MacOS X does have a nice theme though.

some of those do look kinda of interesting ngl. But a bit too dated for me. But I especially like the second to last one. Would be insane to have like that
I really do like the aesthetic.

I know they might look "ugly" to most people especially the ones that have thicker window borders like the Motif based ones, but to me they're "ugly" in a good way.

@ordinaryotaku can relate.

Only problem is that they would be slow af
Not at all, they would be very fast and light for their time compared to the bloated "modern" interfaces of today that focus too much on unneeded "special effects" that eat up your RAM than utilitarianism. Especially if you had a computer with decent specs of the time. Running Windows 11 or GNOME on a computer that's even a few years old is gonna run like molasses or not run at all without significant upgrades.

Even today you can use Window Maker or CDE on modern Linux, and you can make XFCE and Trinity DE to look like classic Windows or classic Mac OS.

My mid-2000s Dell with 2 gigs of RAM and 1GHz Celeron D runs IceWM and Window Maker very well and it can probably run Windows XP well too. I can't run classic Mac OS of course because that would require a very old PowerPC Mac.

Maybe unless you got a low-speced PC from the early '90s or 1980s but at that point just run Windows 3.x or an old version of Linux that can run on a 386 and run twm.
