1. Windows 8

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. 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. 2.Attractive touch-friendly interface; Tightly integrated with cloud; Compelling search feature; Fast boots ; Slick Bing apps.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. 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. 2.Competing interfaces lead to confusion; Few Windows 8 apps for now; No Start menu.

2. Mac OS X

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. 1.At this time it has fewer viruses that can attack it, so it is safer then Windows for now. It is built on a Unix core which is very secure and the standard for the business world.

2.1.2. 2.Programs are not married to one another, so if one locks up the whole computer doesn't lock up and the program can be restarted.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. 1.Speed wise it can be slower with 3-D rendering and graphics intensive programs even if you have the best Mac you can buy.

2.2.2. 2.The EULA agreement states that you are not allowed to install its OS on any PC. So no dual booting allowed on another non Mac system, in fact they can sue you for this since its illegal.

3. Ubuntu 12.10

3.1. 1. Pros

3.1.1. 1. 1.Works flawlessly on most hardware.

3.1.2. 2. 2.Popular desktop Linux distribution based on Debian, with a fine pedigree

3.2. 2. Cons

3.2.1. 1. 1.Ubuntu's controversial desktop shell, Unity, has still to mature.

3.2.2. 2. 2.Recent trends towards 'commercialization' (the addition of online shopping 'suggestions' to the Dash search results).
