Windows VS Macintosh VS Linux

Windows VS Macintosh VS Linux / Linux Vs Macintosh Vs Windows:

There are three major operating systems present in the market for PC, they are Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. And among them, only Windows holds 90% of  OS market share. Every operating system has some pros and cons, no one is completely perfect, it is for you to choose which is better or the best by reviewing them on the basis of your needs. Let’s start a quick review of all three major OS. (Windows VS Macintosh VS Linux )


At first with almost 90% of market share and Windows is the very popular operating system. And it has been used all over the World as the first choice in office, industry and also in the home. It is good in some fields and also has some cons.
Pros :

i)  Almost every application, hardware, driver are compatible with Windows.
ii)  Due to a larger number of users, Windows has a larger number of programmer and developer who developed a much larger number of applications and programs.
iii)  Windows is the best for gamers, almost all kinds of games supported by Windows.
Cons :

i) Being the largest uses OS Windows is more prone to malware and virus than any other OS. Therefore, you have to buy or download a free antivirus software.
ii)  Windows using a lot more resources to run so eventually can cause application crash and overall slow down.
iii)  By the way, Windows is not cheap or free, it can cost you over $100.

Another big player after Windows is Macintosh, though it has only 7% share of OS market,  it is growing faster and it is the first graphical-based OS. 
Pros :

i)  Macintosh is less prone to malware and virus than windows because it has a more closed system and less user then windows.
ii)  This system uses less processing power than Windows and runs only on Apple computers and less prone to hardware and 
Applications crashing. 
iii)  It looks better than Windows and it’s user-friendly.
Cons :

i)  Only Apple users can run Mac OS on their computer. You cannot install Mac OS unless you are an Apple user. So, you are not able to build a system and buy the OS separately.
ii)  It has fewer programmes then Windows, there are few objective – C developers (the programming language Mac uses) and almost no game supported by it. 
iii)  Again, Mac OS is not free and very costly than windows.
  1. LINUX :

At last Linux is smaller but growing, it has only a bit more than 1% share in OS market. It came much later in 1991. Linux is free and GNU’s answer to Mac and Windows. You can download Linux at no cost and modify it without spending a penny.
Pros :

i) Being open source Linux is prone to malware and virus, although it has very few viruses due to fewer users. 
ii)  Linux is free, you can download and modify it only $0.
iii)  The popular Linux distros like Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora are very stable and there is always a chance of one of the distros must suit your needs.
Cons : 

i) Linux has the least amount of applications and games due to few percents of market share.
ii) Many of the distros are very complicated, so you have to be very good in computer knowledge to works them well.
iii)  Only a few vendors sell a computer with Linux OS. So you have to install Linux on your own.
