Should you pick MacOS or Windows... or Linux?

So you want to pick a operating system... Sometimes, you can't decide what you want to pick. This blog post will sum things up about MacOS, Windows, and Linux, this may help you out what operating system fits best for you.

MacOS is good for productivity like video editing, photo editing like photoshop, and many other productive applications for MacOS, it's not perfectly suited for gaming in my opinion since the games are not very optimized for MacOS which they perform not so good unlike Windows although MacOS has "Metal" engine. You can find MacOS only on Apple Computers like the iMac, MacBook (Pro/Air), and the Mac mini, which are very expensive and they are not low prices unlike Windows PCs, unless it's a hackintosh (aka MacOS on non-Apple computers). The operating system MacOS, can get viruses like Windows, but not very commonly though, but if you are not very smart with MacOS, but not much compared to Windows. Please note that today's MacOS will not work with old MacOS PowerPC applications because Apple removed Rosetta since Mac OS X Lion. MacOS is a operating system that is created by Apple Inc, first created in the year 1984.

Windows is the most popular operating of all time, and dominated the market share for desktop computers. Windows is the perfect operating system for gaming than MacOS because MacOS struggles to play games perfectly unlike Windows. The Windows operating system can also pretty much do the same things as MacOS can do nowadays, but keep in mind it's not exactly the same as MacOS. Window is also known for getting viruses, so if you're not smart with Windows, you're most likely to get a virus on Windows. The operating system has a lot of applications and depending what kind of architecture of Windows, for 32-bit Windows it works with 16-bit applications, and 64-bit Windows works with 32-bit applications, but NOT 16-bit applications. Windows is a operating system that is created by Microsoft, first created in the year 1985.

Linux is intended for tech enthusiasts who really know about linux and coding, it's intended for experts, but with the help of the community... Linux comes in many distros like Ubuntu, Debian, and many more out there, it was first release in the year 1991! Linux is open source unlike MacOS and Windows. Keep in mind that Linux is a kernel, not a operating system, and the market share for "Linux" is smaller than MacOS and Windows. Also, Linux rarely ever gets viruses considering that the market share for Linux is small.

Depending on the user, there's many other operating systems out there for the user to pick and choose since every user out there is different and has a different taste when it comes to MacOS, Windows, and Linux. Every operating system has their own flaws and their own tricks too.

Which operating system do you prefer, feel free to comment below!
