Choosing the best operating system May 21, 2007

Posted by Matsu in Apple, Information Technology, Mac, Microsoft, Open Source, Windows/Microsoft.

The Knight guarding the Holy Grail told Indiana Jones (and those with him) to, “Choose wisely.” That is good advice, not only when trying to pick a holy cup from among dozens of cups, but also when picking an operating system.

To help people ‘choose wisely’ the magazine, PC Advisor, recently published this article which includes a comparison chart of the three desktop (as opposed to server) operating systems.



1. TRUSTWORTHYPOOH - May 23, 2007

I am 67 years old and a recent [10 year] immigrant to Geeky-Cyber World. This sort of article is helpful but some of us are so technically challenged andlame that we need to have even more advise. Maybe a teutonic knight…”Buy that install this , shut up and get out your credit card”
I was in my teens before I s aw my first (good) television picture, at 18 I was an electronics tech in the US Navy (all vaccuum tubes, no solid state) so, I am not a moron…..but….should these systems not work as intuitivley as , let’s say, an automobile?? The starter starts the car.Windows XP ‘START’ does everthing but start ,including shut down (STOP) . maybe some techno-person though :”WIZARD” sounded cool, but, I would choose “Installation helper” or some-such instead. I am really busy trying to figure out I_pods and Zoon not to mention my cell phone and my DVD player. I know that Blue Toothe was a viking or Saxon king that united everone under the same tongue and religeon so presumabley BLUETOOTH does something like that …is my cell phone Bluetooth compatible WHO KNOWS
but MAN I am overwhelmed by my medicare part A,B,C,D etc
and why My PC won’t just plug into my laptop with a USB cable
AND WHY DO I HAVE TO BUY A MODEM FOR BROADBAND WHEN ONE IS BUILT INTO MY LAPTOP…so sorry about the rant, maybe it is time for my medication ……………..Doug Platt
