Windows 8 vs Ubuntu 12.04 vs MacOS X 10.7

Filed under
Linux

Mac

About two years ago, I did a comparison of the three major operating systems (market-share wise) — MacOS X, Windows and Ubuntu.

With so many changes happening to all three platforms, it seems like it’s time to do it again.

We’ll be looking at the latest public releases of each system: Windows 8 [which is quickly moving towards a final release and has been available in preview form for a few months], MacOS X 10.7 and Ubuntu 12.04.

I’m going to break this down into a bunch of categories (“Look and Feel”, “Usability”, etc.) and declare a winner in each. At the end, we’ll tally up the score and declare a winner.

Here we go!

Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

10 reasons to use Cinnamon as your Linux desktop environment

Recently I installed Fedora 25, and found that the current version of KDE Plasma was unstable for me; it crashed several times a day before I decided to try to try something different. After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
