How Relevant are Operating Systems?

Last week a student asked me what I thought of Windows 7.
"Not much", I said.
He was puzzled, so I explained that I don't use operating systems. I use applications, so the operating system should be irrelevant.

Operating systems enable us to access our hardware and run our applications. If the operating system is in your face, then it's probably getting in your way.
