Late 90s-early 2000s, Diablo 2, Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Jagged Alliance 2, Baldur's Gate, Rainbow Six, Hidden & Dangerous. It just seems some of the best games of all time came out in those days. So, I was using Windows 98 Pro then. That's my vote.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

Voted WinXP and we're on 7:7 with windows 10 current. Some of the best were fallout 2, sid meiers alpha centauri, colonization 94', panzer general 94', openxcom.

Master of Orion2, Master of Magic...

Skyrim and Warband are damned good.
No time for games so I twitch. Youtube is good. Two monitors at any one time. My graphics card ist krap.

mid to late 90s was amazing, but I think current is the best.

Wouldn't current be "all of the above"?
I've played half those games in the past month. And it's not like I had to dig old consoles out of my closet, all those games are playable on modern hardware.

For me it was during the 8-bit/early 16-bit console era.

The PC offerings of the time were vastly different from what consoles had to offer.

XP brought in themes for the desktop (at least for me). Rocked the s*** out of the Halloween orange and black theme. That alone was worth it
