Linux VS Windows VS Mac

Only vote if you have tried more than one of the operating systems. Tell me which you think is better.

After trying them all, I find Linux to be the best for my personal uses.

i've used some of each..but for me, windows is the best. i pretty much just check out webpages or play video games on my computer..mess around with photoshop a bit too. if i had some other more involved needs from my os..i guess i would swich to some form of linux. if i got heavy into graphic design, i would consider a mac..but those are both ifs that are not realities, so i'm sticking with windows.

A few months ago I tried out Linux. It couldn't do anything that I couldn't do on Windows, and the only way to play games was on Windows, so I stopped using Linux.

I think the mac commercials speak for themselves. All of you are fat, four-eyed nerds who want to be like us mac users.

OS X is way more stable of a system than XP. And if you want to argue with me, please don't use the fact that all games are made for PCs. It would be like arguing with me about automobiles and using the lack of a hydrolic system in my car as one of your major points. Have no interest.

Mac OS X is amazing, I would chose that over windows and maybe even Linux anyday. But I'm not buying a new computer any time in the future. Buying an Apple is the only way to run Mac effiecently, right?

I'm not too sure, but I don't think so. I know I have the option to run XP on here if I wanted, but I don't think it's the other way around.

I prefer Windows because it's more widely supported. Linux is secure but a bitch to configure. I'm not a good enough hacker to be running *nix. Unix by far is the most stable OS ever created. Mac OS is pimp as hell but not much support from 3rd party software vendors.

Windows is just the easiest to get along with for me, I've ued mac at college and it generally ended up with me being ejected from the computer room for swearing loudly.

Linux is known as the great incompatible poop chute.

its funny though, because both windows and max run linus under them so they can have something to fall onto when they crash. Prevents your computer from losing EVERYTHING... you just lose most of evrything now...


windows > mac for everything except for random artsy wanker things like photo/video/audio editing.
