    Re: Pros and Cons of these operating Systems?

    Disclaimer, I own both a desktop and a $3000 mac. So can't say I'm biased.

    Windows:
    Pros:
    Fast
    Many programs
    Generally less in price than others
    Optimized for playing games
    Mostly all hardware is compatible
    Mostly everything on linux/mac is for windows
    Can customize themes and screensavers
    If you need it, it can be done
    Most universal operating system with the most support
    Directx 11 is so beautiful you'll never go outside
    Can easily replace hardware in half an hour
    Cons:
    If you are not informed you can get viruses/scammed
    Hardware can fail

    Mac:
    Pros:
    Best for media design and work.
    Some of the best integration of social media
    For the most part virus free
    Cons:
    Pricey
    Often break on you and then you have to go through apple for repair
    Updates costs you money
    Can't run 90% of games
    Chances of running a windows program is slim to none even with the use of wine.
    Bootcamp really isn't that great, it's a pain to switch for the smallest thing
    Stuck using OpenGL which is subpar compared to DirectX
    You can not swap parts to upgrade your mac
    Can only play some video types
    Finding stuff is a pain
    All Microsoft products are slow (I.E Word/Excel/Power Point)

    Linux:
    Pros:
    Open sourced
    Able to do pretty much anything
    Able to code your own operating system essentially
    Thousands of applications to use
    Complex
    Stable
    Flexible
    Customization
    Free
    Cons:
    Limited hardware
    Need to really be into computer science or else everything is a pain
    Super complex
    Need to read guides for a while
    One mistake and you can fry hardware
    Limited software

    Hope this helped, feel free to message me with any other questions, don't forget a bunch of people have made pro/con lists for all the operating systems, don't be shy and not google!
    I'll miss you all
