The aim of study is developing a fuzzy decision model to select appropriate operating system for computer systems of the firms by taking subjective judgments of decision makers into consideration. Proposed approach is based on Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) and TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) methods. FAHP method is used in determining the weights of the criteria by decision makers and then rankings of the operating systems are determined by TOPSIS method. Empirical study has also been demonstrated.
