For me it would be Vista, by a long shot. <g> Scott.

When I bought my e1505, with its core duo proc and 1G of RAM, Vista was a pig. It had me longing for my old XP netbook. It waddled along for a few years until I put together a decent Win7 desktop rig, then got my wife and I some cheap Compaq notebooks with 7 on 'em.
Later, I dragged my old Dell out of the closet, remembering that I *did* rather like the keyboard on that thing, and swapped in a T7200 cpu, bumped the RAM to 3G (it took 4, but I had to share what I had between it and another computer) after re-installing Vista 64 bit. Now it works quite well.
A clean bloatware-free install helped a lot.

If it had performed like this from the start, this might have been one of my favorite computers. As it is, I keep it around as a backup for my work computer. While it had occurred to me to "upgrade" it to 8, I don't think I'll bother. It's doing fine with Vista now.

Long winded, perhaps... but that's just me.
