When Is It Time To Switch Operating Systems?

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft
Mac

Every once in a blue moon, the opportunity to re-evaluate exactly which OS is best for a given user comes along. And this can come into play on a number of factors: broken/new computer time, easily confused with existing option, unable to avoid malware despite your best efforts. Sometimes this means going from OS X to something else, from Windows to something else or even Linux back to something else. There is simply not black and white situation. Remember, what is annoying and unusable to you, could fit like a glove for someone else. So please remember this before expressing extreme dislike for any platform in front of non-geeks.

OS X advantages

Macs are said to be easier. At least this is what my wife would say about them, as this is her preferred platform. And with the abundance of software and resources available from Apple these days, I’d say there is a lot of truth to this. For the most part I think that we can all agree that using a Mac is “different.” Whether or not this is a good thing, really depends on the individual. In some cases, it’s a natural fit as you can get an all-inclusive iMac, where everything they need comes in one box.
