Windows Vs. Mac OS X – Which is the Best Operating System?

By Sidharth | Apple

The folks at iTok shares an interesting infographic throwing both the Operating System in the ring and succinctly outlining a neat comparison between Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s Mac OS.

Let’s get down to the facts and have a quick look at Windows Vs. Mac OS X, and find out which one is a winner:

Best Operating System?

Who’s the winner? Because there is an unsettling heat between the Windows and Mac OS users, I’ll leave it to you to decide.

However, from the number of units sold, Mac machines are certainly picking up steam while Windows growth has been phenomenal over the years.

Yes, Windows OS sales are dwindling as we speak, but as you know Windows OS comes in flavors of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, there are a lot of Windows machines blooming every year. It’s a known fact that Microsoft’s Windows OS is widely adapted in schools and offices.

My three-year-old Windows PC sits left of my desk, usually turned off, while my iMac takes the lead for my primary usage, predominantly because of the huge 27-inch screen, which makes multitasking a breeze.

Also, Windows 7 breathes on my Mac hardware, and I use Windows 7 OS regularly for my blogging needs. So, forgive for being neutral, but I love both the OSes.

Though I have to admit that I have an unequivocal love for Mac OS X Lion.

    Mac as a freebie? That’s a rarity.

All major activity which can be done in Windows can be more easily done at MAC. Many people like windows because they never dared to try Mac. As we Human Beings are very relectant to changes, so only Windows hold 90% + share.
ONCE YOU GO TO MAC, YOU NEVER GO BACK !!!!!!

    Gotta disagree on that one… I have had a macbook pro for the last year or so and I am never buying another one. I am not saying that windows is better than macs. Just that the things I care about and work with work just as well or better on a windows machine. For my friends who deal with multimedia and web-design I totally agree that macs are superior to windows.

    Unfortunately that is not true. I tried for 4 months to use a MacBook Pro and ended up back with Win7.

    Mac’s are certainly not for the business world!

Although Mac has also good features but this time my vote will go for Windows because i am using it from my school days. I feel that operating windows is easy rather than Mac.
