OS 101: Suggestions for Choosing an Operating SystemWritten by Josef Delinga
Continued from page 1
Pros and Cons of The Big Four
Every operating system has its positive and negative elements. There is no perfect operating system. Keeping this in mind, consider most common operating systems (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Unix). Mac OS X is great for keeping out hackers and for graphic design. However some problems are fact that certain software is not available for Macs. If OS is for a college student who would rather play Half-Life 2 than study, then Mac OS X is not best choice. Windows is very good for compatibility, since most consumers use Windows. Windows also comes with applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, Windows is weak against viruses and can get bogged down easily. Unix is good for networks, especially if for businesses. Unix has also been around for almost 30 years, so it is quite dependable. One drawback of Unix is cost, which can sometimes be a bit expensive. Unix is also complicated, which can confuse beginners. The final OS, Linux, is free and completely customizable. However, one major drawback is extreme scarcity of applications for Linux. Microsoft and other software developers are often very reluctant to release their products for Linux.
Whatever operating system one chooses, it needs to be system that will best fit needs of consumer. All operating systems have good and bad elements. Understanding how each system works, and system’s pros and cons is a must for anyone deciding on a computer and OS. An OS selection based on research and understanding will certainly yield highest satisfaction.
