Windows 8 vs Ubuntu 12.04 vs MacOS X 10.7
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.
