I'd say this is the case right now.

The last question wasn't very friendly though, to answer one should have made some researches...

Well, it was the only suggestion I had, so I went with it. :P

To me, facebook is the most straightforward way to communicate with people. You can easily find someone even if you don't have his phone number, and you can create group conversations. Whatsapp is pretty good as well.

I'm not 100% sure but I went with SMS. I don't really use actual SMS too often but I use stuff like Discord on my PC and phone. I use Facebook messenger, WhatsApp and Viber etc. on my phone most often so I'm not sure that falls under SMS or Other. I do call people too but I text them on those apps far more often.

I'm not really sure myself, so I'll sleep on this one before voting ;)

I'll say this though, I'm in between forums, SMS, and emails.

I know I'm here a lot but for everyday communication with people I see in real life I use messenger, whatsapp and viber. I don't know if they count as SMS though and messenger is Facebook.

Mmm, I guess I'll say texting then, since I'm more likely to chat through texts, so SMS.

Well I guess that settles that, it's become the 4 votes thread :mrgreen:

(Also just though I'd bump it in case anyone has a suggestion)

Good idea Ray! :)

Should we try favourite version of Windows or maybe favourite computer OS in general (WIndows, Mac OS or Linux etc.)?

Well, I had put this on hold indefinitely because turnout was really low. Somehow I don't expect this to improve, but yeah, let's try that Windows one because why not!

I'm going with Windows 7 on this one. While my first PC had Windows 98 which is very memorable then I really loved Windows XP for how well it worked and the look of it, they're really outdated now and Windows 7 can still be used without limiting you in any way. I also love the UI on WIndows 7 and think it looks far nicer than Windows 8 & 10 :hap:

Thank you PluM for reminding me about this topic. :mrgreen:

I did enjoy XP, 98 and 95, but 7 was the last good Windows so I'll pick this one. I have this old computer that used to run 7 with no issues whatsoever but I fell for that free upgrade a few years back and now it's as slow as a rheumatic turtle, not to mention the decreased usability. I'm thinking of formatting it and reinstalling Windows 7 but I'm not sure I still have a CD image and license key around.
thank mr skeltal

I’m also going with Windows 7, and not just cuz it’s my favorite number. Aside from all the reasons mentioned above, Windows 7 was the last good OS I’ve had because I could install and use all the computer games I downloaded successfully without many problems that would ultimately prevent me from running them.

I'm going with Windows 7 as well. I don't care what people might say that Windows 10 is better because it's newer and that Windows 7 is nothing compared to it, Windows 7 in my opinion will always be the best version of Windows you can ever get! I love it because of it's beauty, charm and overall harmony. The transparency of the task bar and everything, the sounds, the startup sound and the startup and shutdown screens (the white bird with the green leaves). It has a certain charm to it that you don't see with Windows 10. The install screen for Windows 7 is so much more stylish and beautiful than the one you get on Windows 10. Windows 10 looks flat, the colors overall look pretty flat and just about everything looks boring and lifeless in comparison to Windows 7's bright, shiny, vivid colors. Overall, Windows 7 is just the most beautiful OS ever created in my opinion.

Hooray, we made more that 4 votes again :teuf:

I agree that Windows 7 is pretty amazing and I might actually reinstall it myself. It's probably worth using CSM and having a slower non UEFI boot to have a better OS overall :hap:
