Windows vs Mac OS -Comparing the Two Operating Systems

As long as some people like Windows OS and others like Mac OS, the debate will never be settled. Both operating systems have benefits for certain types of people, and those people aren’t going anywhere. In many ways, it depends on how you’re going to be using your computer, as Windows is better for some applications, and Mac for others. There are things about each system that are better than the other system, and that is what we will focus on.

Price is the biggest advantage that Windows offers to its users. You can definitely get a computer with a Windows OS for much less than you can get for a Mac.

Obviously, however, as of this article’s writing date, Windows 8 is still just something that we can only look forward to. Currently the earliest it will be released is sometime in 2012. And by then Mac will probably have something in the works to rival it.

Neither system is that much better than the other one, and don’t let anyone tell you so. Back in the past a program only worked with a Windows system or it worked only with a Mac system, so the two systems didn’t have much in common. You can find various versions of software that can work on either a PC or a Mac, that will run almost any device that you can hook up. If you want a Mac, that will run Windows, you now can have one, by purchasing the modern. There are still some things that a Mac does better, and other things that Windows does better, but most users won’t know the difference and everything they need, will be there with either one.
