OS X

Pros

More stable than Windows due to Apple’s tighter control over the configuration options and its UNIX base.

Cons

More expensive upfront than other choices. Some would say this is offset by less maintenance required over the life of the system.

Less support. You have to goto Apple for all your hardware problems.
