Desktop Operating Systems by Mind Map: Desktop Operating Systems

1. Windows

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. Windows 8 Consumer Preview is that it boots quickly, about 8-12 seconds.

1.1.2. I’d have to drop all my Windows games and many 3rd party productivity apps that just don’t exist in Ubuntu.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. You can easily create a LIVE CD (or LIVE USB jump drive) and won’t have to worry about messing up your Windows install.

1.2.2. Microsoft tends to be a pure pain and you can get a run around when talking about the simplest of things.

2. Ubuntu

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. Ubuntu is straight forward on how it works (if you know coding) while OS X requires luck or some knowledge to use all the basic features.

2.1.2. Ubuntu can go on Windows and Mac

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. Ubuntu does not have a big company like Apple backing it up.

2.2.2. some parts of the Ubuntu UI do feel a little sluggish from time to time

3. Mac OS X

3.1. Pros

3.1.1. OS X does not require you to put in code in a terminal to get some applications and to get them working.

3.1.2. OS X 10.8 is Apple’s first release since the introduction of iCloud – their free online storage service.

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. OS X can do basic things but OS X is limited on what it can do.

3.2.2. the OS vendor can make radical changes at the drop of a hat that can adversely effect your entire business model.
