Mac, Windows Or Linux?
Posted 15 March 2005 - 03:56 PM
+ Few number of viruses, great for graphic designing, audio recording, video editing...
- Compatibility: Many things (especially games) not available for macs, even though that is slowly changing.
+ Good Compatibility, can do everything: play games, working with graphics, audio, video...
- TONS of viruses, some stability issues.
+ I haven't tried it, but I have heard it works awesome for servers. Few (or none) virus. No Hardware compatibility issues.
- Quite poor compatibility. Few graphics programs, and games? Don't even think about it.
I stay with Windows, becouse I can do everything on it.

That isn't true. Linux usually doesn't have support for the latest or somewhat obscure hardware, because drivers haven't been made. Also, in many cases the drivers that do exist are not as complete as they should be. However, this is changing.
No Hardware compatibility issues.

Linux well I wouldnt bounce up and down for it, its well apparently stabler but well it kinda lacks anything that makes the common suer want to change, ive got SuSE but I still like windows better, it gives better support for most programs although that could change. For stability the stats maybe look in favor of linux but I havent had any major problems with windows, infact ive had next to none. I had it running for five days on end and it still managed and kept its speed up. Fair enough it may not be the best server but for a desktop it does pretty well for itself. I do hate Microsoft but Windows is fine for what I use it for. Ill continue to play with linux but it may be a few years before I think about seriously moving to linux for my computer and linux only.

why do people who have never used linux ommane on it.
the views about games is very out dated, half life 2 works fine with cedeger.
nothing here has been said that hasnt already been said 10 times in the above 8 topics.
We have a Mac vs Windows, a Windows vs Mac, 2 linux vs windows, and 2 whitch involve Windows, Linux, Mac, Solaris and BSD.
Please dont make new threads when we already have several of them.
im going to close this thread.
