Not bad.

Rules/Rocks: First place, Linux.  Second place, VMS.
Third place: FreeBSD.  Windows got fifth place.

Sucks:  Last place, Windows.  Second-to-last place, Linux.
Third-to-last place: Unix.

Of special mention is AmigaOS.  While it only had
5 "rules/rocks" (making it dead last on the green side),
no one said it sucks (making it first place on the red).
However, VMS apparently sucks less than FreeBSD, MacOSX,
Solaris, or several other entrants, and is probably a
little more realistic as an OS choice nowadays -- although
I don't know the price of the modern variant of a MicroVAX. :-)
