PC Operating Systems

Operating Systems Definition

Windows 7

Pros

Most popular operating systemEasy to use – I think, this is because most computer users started their computing with Windows and are familiar with it. However, for a hard core Linux user, Windows may be difficult to use, cluttered, unorganized Operating System. http://blog.hafees.com/windows/windows-linux-and-mac-a-comparison/

Cons

Because of the high usage, most spywares and viruses are targeted to this platform. Not free, restricted, no freedom.http://blog.hafees.com/windows/windows-linux-and-mac-a-comparison/

Mac OS X

Pros

Excellent user interface and usability. Easy installation of applications. Targeted less by viruses & spywares. http://blog.hafees.com/windows/windows-linux-and-mac-a-comparison/

Cons

Though, based on open source operating systems, it is still proprietary. Cost of ownership is high – User is not free to try it out by paying for the operating system alone, instead the user is forced to buy new hardware at premium prices. http://blog.hafees.com/windows/windows-linux-and-mac-a-comparison/
