Desktop Operating Systems by Mind Map: Desktop Operating Systems

1. Windows

1.1. Pros:

1.1.1. Boots quickly, about 8-12 seconds.

1.1.2. One of the additional feature for the user of WIndows 8 is that you don't have to search Adobe reader or any other pdf reader for the pdf files.

1.2. Cons:

1.2.1. Windows 8 has a totally new default interface: Metro. When I look at Metro, however, I see gaudy colors, boxy designs, applications that can either run as a small tile or as full screen with no way to resize or move windows. Where have I seen this before? Wait, I know! Windows 1.0!

1.2.2. The security issues that Windows faces may discourage some.

2. Mac OS X

2.1. Pros:

2.1.1. A dedicated app for browsing and buying games

2.1.2. sandboxing effectively means that applications have to work independent of each other and will require specific permissions to carry out certain tasks – this is being seen as a way of removing the possibility of installing a malicious application or a virus from stealing data.

2.2. Cons:

2.2.1. OSX is only compatible with Apple Mac computers officially

2.2.2. OS X requires luck or some knowledge to use all the basic features.

3. Ubuntu

3.1. Pros:

3.1.1. Ubuntu is Free & Open Source

3.1.2. Virtual Desktops are perhaps the most impressive ‘wow' feature of Ubuntu. And not only do they look cool, but they‘re a tremendous boost for productivity.

3.2. Cons:

3.2.1. Parts of the Ubuntu UI do feel a little sluggish from time to time

3.2.2. Frequent crashes
