Jose Venegas Desktop Operating System by Mind Map: Jose Venegas Desktop Operating System

1. Windows 8

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. 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. 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. HARDWARE OUTLAY- Companies will have to upgrade the hardware to take advantage of the touch interface

1.3. 1. The UI will help merge the tablet and PC markets and allow PC to benefit from the touch capabilities

2. Mac OSX

2.1. Pros

2.1.1. 1. Mac OS X is still the operating system of choice for graphic artists, designers and most others who work with visual and audio media. It also synchronizes user information well across multiple Apple devices, such as the iPhone and iPad, making it easily usable in a mobile office environment.

2.1.2. 2. 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.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. 1. The biggest one is price: Apple computers simply cost much more than your average PC.

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

4. Market Share

5. Define: Operating System

5.1. An operating system, or "OS," is software that communicates with the hardware and allows other programs to run. It is comprised of system software, or the fundamental files your computer needs to boot up and function. Every desktop computer, tablet, and smartphone includes an operating system that provides basic functionality for the device.

6. Define Open Source

6.1. (1) Generically, open source refers to a program in which the source code is available to the general public for use and/or modification from its original design free of charge, i.e., open. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community. Open source sprouted in the technological community as a response to proprietary software owned by corporations.

7. Define: Ram

7.1. RAM is computer memory that holds instructions and data. When the computer is switched off, the contents of the RAM are lost. It's just like a calculator- switch that off and you lose the contents.
