There are three major, obvious choices:

Linux (Unix-Based OS)

Mac (Unix-Based OS)

Microsoft (Self-serving, Independent OS)


About 90% of the "wired" World uses Microsoft, with about 9% using Mac, and the rest use Linux and other independent software/OS.

As for me, a loyal Microsoft user who experiments with Linux and fantasizes about using Mac.:giggling: The need is no more; the Mac interface that I dream about is coming the newest Microsoft product; VISTA!

what's Linux!!!
Its an operating system that is used by computer-savvy people, you can start from scratch or with some applications and build everything, like your own web browser, writing application, games, etc. Its also free. A lot of people experiment with it, like myself, but its just not that good, its really cool though.

For more info, just google it or go to wikipedia and find out more!

Mac has the best Security out of all of them....cos majority ppl go for Win. Hackers don't tend to spend time trying to access them ;)

But it's still rubbish....but which OS is perfect?

Linux, you impatient Fool!;D

You can, if you've got "mad hot programmer skillz," turn Linux into something that surpasses all other OS's.
