OS Smackdown: Linux vs OS X vs Vista vs XP
Mount your soapboxes fanboys of all denominations - It's playtime...
OS Smackdown: Linux vs. Mac OS X vs. Windows Vista vs. Windows XP
Since the dawn of time - or, at least, the dawn of personal computers -
the holy wars over desktop operating systems have raged, with each
faction proclaiming the unrivaled superiority of its chosen OS and the
vile loathsomeness of all others.
No matter how fierce the language or convincing the arguments, however,
these battles began to seem somewhat irrelevant to regular working
stiffs. While Mac OS, OS/2, Linux and many other desktop operating
systems...OS Smackdown: Linux vs. Mac OS X vs. Vista vs. XP

I just posted a msg. asking about books for InDesign CS but as well
have one other question. I have been looking for a page layout program
for some time and mostly have decided on InDesign from the research
I've done. It seems that QuarkXpress is the market leader by far (I
read a year ago it was 90% market share, not sure about it now).
InDesign though seems to have surpassed it in the features now and as
well seems to be a faster program. I get the idea more people use
QuarkXpress but as well it seems InDesign is more the future and the
fact I use Adobe Photoshop heavily and will be us...Mac OS vs. Windows vs. Linux

*****...os/2 vs. linux
I just saw an ad that IBM ran during the USOpen to promote linux. And
.... it just so happens that I have been spending the past several days
downloading and burning linux isos containing several variants of the
operating system. I guess I must be missing something, because
frankly, most of it is crap.
Is IBM nuts? Why don't they invest in the operating system that they
own and make it the premier system? Their must be something to linux,
but so far, I can't find it. The only variant that I was able to get
to do a complete install was turbo linux. I barely squeezed it ...Performance of OS X vs Linux
I understand that OS X in based on Unix, therefore, would it require similar
resources as a Linux Distro?

Well, yes and no. While the networking parts share a BSD heritage, the kernels
and imaging systems are vastly different. And it all depends on what you mean by
"similar resources." At first approximation, yes: You can get Yellow Dog Linux

This is NOT a holy war, I just want those who had them both (Linux and
Mac OS X) in a PowerMac to tell me which one they "feel" faster, more
responsive, and more efficient with CPU/RAM/Disk.

On my 266MHz iMac with 192MB of RAM, Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 definitely feels

When you go to marketshare,
you learn that:
Windows has 88.14% market share
Where is this survey made? Hitslink says:
"The websites in our population represent almost all countries on earth."
See: <http://marketshare.hitslink.com> (About Our Market Share Statistics)
For North America, 10% would be a fair estimate. Close to 10% of internet
users in the world, in China, India, Russia and South America is err...
