1. Windows 8

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. The biggest advantage of Windows is that it provides ready-made solutions that can be implemented by just about anyone who’s ever used a computer.

1.1.2. Microsoft Office is also 100% compatible with any file or document produced in the office space in America. In fact, MS Office isn't compatible with other software and systems, so much as other software and systems strive to be compatible with Office.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. The only other major disadvantage of using Windows in the workplace is that over 95% of all viruses and malicious software are written for the Windows OS. This means you have to double-down all security measures if you’re using Microsoft software across the board.

1.2.2. while this worldwide operating system is far from trash, it is often not as stable as its Mac or Linux counterparts.

2. Mac OS

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. Mac OS is the only commercial operating system that is custom-made to work with Apple’s hardware. This gives it a level of efficiency, power, and stability, which is most important for the workplace.

2.1.2. Mac OS X is still the operating system of choice for graphic artists, designers and most others who work with visual and audio media.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. Apple computers simply cost much more than your average PC.

2.2.2. Apple’s computer platform is often mistakenly thought to be immune from viruses and other malicious software. While it is true that you rarely hear of a Mac that has gotten a virus, they are not immune.

3. Linux

3.1. pros

3.1.1. Distributions such as Linux Mint and the increasingly popular Ubuntu were designed especially to be easy and non-threatening for the average user.

3.1.2. Implementing Linux on an enterprise level can add up to huge savings: the operating system, and almost all of its available software (including the Microsoft-compatible Libre Office) are 100% free.

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. Perhaps more difficult is getting other managers or board members to approve the change.

3.2.2. Its biggest disadvantage is that its end-users and office workers are often scared of it at first.

4. Definition of Operating System

4.1. The software that supports a computer's basic functions, such as scheduling tasks, executing applications, and controlling peripherals.

5. Definition of Open Source

5.1. pertaining to or denoting software whose source code is available free of charge to the public to use, copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute.

6. Definition of RAM

6.1. random-access memory; computer memory available to the user for creating, loading, or running programs and for the temporary storage and manipulation of data, in which time of access to each item is independent of the storage sequence. As a storage medium, RAM is volatile, so its contents are lost when the power fails or is turned off.

7. Market share
