Chris Razo Desktop Operating Systems by Mind Map: Chris Razo Desktop Operating Systems

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. Importantly, Windows 8 will support the power-savvy ARM chips found in phones and tablets, in addition to the Intel and AMD chips that have traditionally powered Windows PCs

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. 1. Companies will have to upgrade their hardware to take advantage of the touch interface.

1.2.2. 2. The security issues that Windows faces may discourage some, but as long as a good anti-virus application is used then this shouldn’t be an issue.

2. Mac OS X

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.

2.2. Cons

2.2.1. 1. Mountain Lion is the shrug of an answer. There's too much going on, a scattershot of design, rather than a consistent ideology a la Metro. It's distracting and turgid.

2.2.2. 2. Full screened apps in Mountain Lion push everything else out of the way, forcing you to slide between multiple desktops if you want to look at more than one thing at a time.

3. Linux Ubuntu 12.10

3.1. Pros

3.1.1. 1. The term ‘open-source’ means that you can access and alter the source-code of an application, allowing you to add your own functionality or improve the performance of the software; this is what makes Linux and the related applications a popular choice with developers and software enthusiasts.

3.1.2. 2. Not only does Linux tend to be compatible with users' needs, but it tends to offer much better interoperability than proprietary operating systems do.

3.2. Cons

3.2.1. 1. Many people that do not like the new Unity user interface often complain(ed) about the lack of customisability of the user interface and the menu bar at the top, as well as with the Unity launcher.

3.2.2. 2. It isn’t a good start for someone who may not understand what the Terminal is nor what to do. So if they are asked to execute commands via the Terminal, they won’t understand what the heck is going on, and it’s not a very good start for someone trying out Ubuntu.

4. Define: Operating System A collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs.

5. Define: Open Source Is a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details

6. Define: RAM The place in a computer where the operating system, application programs, and data in current use are kept so that they can be quickly reached by the computer's processor.

7. Market Share
