Lots of different opinions for this. If you have basically used Windows in the past acquire Vista or Windows 7 if you want Microsoft Support. If you don't care about Microsoft Support then XP would be a good choice. If you aren't really hooked to Microsoft Windows as an OS then consider Linux. It is the next best supported software. You can usually find a Linux version of about 80% of the Windows programs floating around. Or at least a software similar.

Now if you are talking Macintosh I can't help you out at all other than to recommend posting on a Macintosh Forum somewhere and asking alot of question.

My computer came preloaded with Windows XP, which works well with the adaptive program on which I depend. But then, I've been hooked on the Windows OS since version 3.1 (is that dating myself? lol!) My daughter and son-in-law, however, are staunch Mac users. They like the Mac OS's simplicity. If you're concerned about viruses, I'd also recommend Mac. My daughter says they're less prone - not immune, though. Fewer hackers seem able to write effective Mac-based viruses for some reason. Hope I've helped rather than confusing you.
