Our dream OS: the best of Windows, OS X, Linux, Android and iOS

Filed under
OS

Which operating system is the best? It's a classic question, and one still capable of generating pages of highly polarised online debate. Few people take a middle view - more often they claim their preference rules supreme, and anything else is total rubbish.

The reality, of course, is very different. We love Windows, but it's far from perfect. OS X, Linux, Android, iOS and others are similarly strong in some areas, but not so good in others. This isn't the absolute black and white discussion it's usually portrayed as; it's much more about shades of grey.

Realising this got us thinking. OK, right now there's no operating system that can trample over the competition - but what if we could change that ourselves?
