so which operating system do you all think is the best?
Why isn't Linux on the list!?
There are several reasons this topic failed the moment you posted.
1. This poll has already been made.
2. You're missing key options (aforementioned Lrnix, etc).
3. There is no "best". Its soley based on opinion and your personal needs, level of technical comprehension.
4. 3.. 2.. 1.. flame war.
But to add on.
5. Mac isn't an OS it's hardware.
I voted for XP.
OSX is great, except that it has no games
Gaming is for XP
Media is for OSX
Crap is for Vista
Can't comment on any Linux builds though, never tried them. Though I'm guessing they're somewhere in between XP and OSX.
I say a Mac with XP installed for Bootcamp.
can't vote, it depends on what hardware you have. XP is better than Vista on old systems, Vista is better than XP on new systems with at least 2 gigabytes of RAM. Mac OS is a unix based system, generally is not designed for PC clone systems.
That's a terrible excuse. OS X does have games. Just not many. And I can't say they run great, I mean Apple never intended to make Gaming Beasts. I do agree XP is for gaming though.
the only reasons OSX and Linux builds are "flawless" is that because hackers don't wanna hack them since no one obviously use them. They are like or worse then XP.
Hell, I use XP, at least you can find software for it.
An overused myth created and spread by ignorant Windows users.
Read this if you don't want to sound like a brainless sheep in the future:
The hackers use them..
I use XP for gaming and Flash..
And Linux for programming and other stuff..
Really? Crackers don't care about Linux and other UNIX derivatives because no-one uses them? That's weird, because I'm pretty sure a large percentage (well over half, maybe reaching into 70 or 80 percent) of well....the internet.... runs on either Linux or BSD.
I'd say that's a pretty big motivation for anyone wanting to take down some computers.
I recently downgraded from Vista to XP.
I almost feel like buying a MAC.
Get an old PC and install Smoothwall on it, put it between your XP machine and the internet. You now have no need for antivirus or firewall programs.
And those are the only viable Con with XP, given how much it can be customized now...
Look Macs aren't Acronyms. They don't need to be Capitalized. You don't type VISTA do you?
UNIX isn't an acronym either.
I was strongly considering it at one point, but the large premium of the hardware has set me off of that route. Tried OSX86 a few times with no success.
Same here. The price is just too high. I did actually get a working OSX86 install, but I had no internet access. Computers get boring without internets. :\
