I wrote a comparison between different Opperating Systems and wanted to know what you guys think.

I think your article is awful. You repeat the same things over and over again, misspelled a lot of of things, and included lousy citations and completely failed to back up a bunch of other ridiculous claims.

This part was the worst, as well as your other table.

Poor security. Windows comes with built in Internet Explorer. And if you know anything about computers, thatís not a good thing.

This is just downright wrong. IE 10 is one of the most secure browsers (link).

Very limited access to Open Source software.

Wrong.

Apple is considered to be a newcomer to the field of Operating Systems, compared to Windows.

Mac Cons:
"Less customer support compared to Windows. The user will actually have to go to Apple for any Hardware issues."
Not true at all. Customer support compared to Windows is more targeted and more helpful. For one Apple doesn't charge you to come in and get help. I don't know about the Windows stores but to call M$ to get support does cost money.

As for "have to" go to Apple for hardware issues. Firstly as at least Apple users they can take their hardware to and they can trust. Compared to Windows which while there are many different places you can do, how many can you really trust?
Also like Windows which the adventurist users can fix themselves, a Apple user can be just as adventurist however there are more detailed step-by-step guides on how to do it.

Apple is far from being a new comer to the field of OS compared to Windows.

As for the whole topic. Let's set one thing straight. PC means Personal Computer, so an Apple computer is a PC. However I get that when people say PC they mean non-Apple. Now that part being said, you need to include Linux and maybe UNIX and their pros and cons.


You're use of a site that tracks OSs based on browsers to get your figures as which OS has more user base is completely unreliable. Most of the over all stats are based on W3Schools users, they say so themself. Stands to reason that implies people that to go that site. I for one have never heard of W3Schools until now. Unless W3Schools can get all of the stats from some place like Google Analytics which has over 1-million, which Google is not about to give out to just anyone, then their stats have to be based on people going to their site.

I was about to do what everyone else has done and pick through it to highlight all of the flaws, but to be honest there's no point. More of it is utterly useless due to being false, opinion or need to be extensively caveated or explained than there is anything worth keeping, just bin the whole lot and start again. And this time, it might pay to actually do some research into the operating systems you want to discuss.

Billy Bob from MS already said higher number is better
For support from MS, it's goes like this

Retail version of the OS gets free support, forgot how long or how many limited phone calls
OEM installed by a PC maker is supported by the PC manufacture.
OEM OS you buy from online like Newegg gets no support, you're on your own. You will have to pay to get help from MS.
