Most Popular Operating Systems: Comparing Windows, macOS and Linux

When considering the three most popular personal computer operating systems , each comes with pros and cons. In the end, deciding which OS is “best” comes down to user goals and preferences.

Some important questions to ask include: How flexible is your budget? What kind of work do you do? Is security your main concern? Something else?

Mac is an operating system widely considered to have a superior graphical user interface, developed by Apple for their Macintosh systems. Microsoft developed Windows to overcome the limitations of the MS-DOS systems, and is the most popular operating system on the planet. Linux is an open source software available to anyone for use, modification and distribution. Its open-source nature brings advantages, especially with respect to security. Anyone can review the code to ensure there are no bugs in the system.

At the end of the day, this infographic wasn’t designed to tell you what to do! Its goal is to help you make an informed decision about the best OS for you, your company, or your clients.

Happy researching!
