1. Windows 8

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. 1 Windows has always had a better file exploring program than OS X.

1.1.2. 2 The new task manager, known as Process Manager, is excellent; it gives you a segregated view of apps, background processes, and windows processes.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. 1 Windows 8 will have a longer learning curve for many; the introduction of several new features and their consequent execution will be something of a source of frustration.

1.2.2. 2 While this worldwide operating system is far from trash, it is often not as stable as its Mac or Linux counterparts

2. Mac OSX

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. 1 Once the user becomes accustomed to the interface OSX is much more efficient.

2.1.2. 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. 1 Apple computers simply cost much more than your average PC.

2.2.2. 2 While it is true that you rarely hear of a Mac that has gotten a virus, they are not immune. Criminals simply don’t write malicious software for Macs very often. Don’t be taken in with a false sense of security!

3. Linux Ubuntu 12.10

3.1. Pros

3.1.1. 1 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.

3.1.2. 2 Linux software is also highly customizable–something that software services can make use of to make a network more secure.

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. 1 Its biggest disadvantage is that its end-users and office workers are often scared of it at first.

3.2.2. 2 Too many of today's programs run on Windows.

4. Market Share

5. Define: Operating System: The software that supports a computer's basic functions, such as scheduling tasks, executing applications, and controlling peripherals

6. Define: Open Source: of or relating to or being computer software for which the source code is freely available

7. Define: RAM: Random-access memory: the most common computer memory which can be used by programs to perform necessary tasks while the computer is on; an integrated circuit memory chip allows information to be stored or accessed in any order and all storage locations are equally accessible
