All versions of AmigaOs (1.3+) completely destroy Windows 3.1 Win3.1 has crappy cooperative multitasking, and is 16 bit, where AmigaOs uses preemptive multitasking and is always 32 bit, because 16 bit modes don't exist on the Amiga platform.

As for Win95 and 98, as far as I know they too have cooperative multitasking, which is no match for AmigaOs, and both of these still have 16 bit components (again, as far as I know). Windows didn't become 'good' until Windows 2000 as far as I'm concerned.

Today, AmigaOs really does show it's age, and furthermore, it's not as efficient as it could be (not by a long shot).
