Chromium

pros

Chrome Beta Updates with Faster Speeds, Preference Syncing

Recent History Gives Chrome a Better History

Chrome OS is still very much in the research stage, with devices not expected until late 2010.

Google Chrome OS code will only be supported by Google and its partners, and will only run on hardware designed for the purpose.

you can't simply install OS X wherever and expect full compatibility.

Some of these bugs have been causing major problems, such as programs crashing or freezing, unbootable drives and data loss and/or drive corruption.

Dock's new three-dimensional, transparent look. It makes the Dock less obtrusive.

OSX’s UNIX base (which has been under development a lot longer than Windows) and UNIX security model lead to a much more stable operating system.

Unless you’re luck to get a CD, you do have to mess about with .ISO files and burn a disc.

Windows 7

Most popular operating system

Applications & driver support – Undoubtedly Windows has the most number of applications

cons

Not free, restricted, no freedom

Because of the high usage, most spywares and viruses are targeted to this platform.
