Mac OS 9.2. It's fast on my Sawtooth G4 in a way Mac OS X Leopard on a Core Duo Macbook Pro just isn't. The X86 DOS family is probably second place in that it leaves nearly the entire computer free when running programs, even when a lot of extensions are loaded.

AMIGA WORKBENCH 3.1 as far as I am concerned it totally prepared me for MS Windows and I mean that in a good way.

BeOS rocked. I got into it when the stores started carrying BeOS 5 and the office suite. Driver installation involved dragging the driver into a folder. Multitasking and multimedia were a silky smooth breeze. Hopefully Haiku brings all that goodness back.

DOS never died for me. I still boot to it for motherboard BIOs flashes. Many of my hard drive tools still run under DOS. Heck, I remove file and folder permissions multiple times a day using a command line tool. I suppose it's the same for Linux shell people - once you know the commands it just works.

I've always enjoyed good old DOS. I also like Windows 95, because of the nostalgia factor (had a Win95 AST growing up). That startup chime brings back a LOT of memories :D
