A Mac Operating System Is Better For Many People And Windows Operating System For Other People

There are many people who like Macs much better than Windows Computers and the the fact is that each operating system has distinct advantages. These two operating systems are always getting worked on and also improved. The most recent update to the Mac operating system is Lion and Microsoft Windows users are waiting around with baited breath for that impending release of Windows 8. Continue reading to learn both what Windows and Mac can offer you.

If you spend a lot of your computer time playing games, then Windows is probably the best choice for you. If you have a Mac, there are some games, but Windows has a much larger selection. If you have a new Mac computer, you can run it like a PC by using Bootcamp. However, if you're a serious gamer, it may not make sense to have to go to this trouble. And even though Bootcamp is a useful function for running many Windows programs, it may not give you all the speed and power you need for demanding games. Buying a PC made for gaming, though quite expensive, would be your best choice, if you are looking for the best gaming experience. But when it comes to Mac vs. Windows, the latter is definitely the better choice for gamers.

After the cost, Windows' biggest advantage is the wide variety of choices that are available and they way you can customize things. In terms of Mac, you only have one company: Apple. PCs, on the other hand, are made by dozens of companies, some very well known, others small and obscure.

The primary advantage of all of these choices is that you can build your computer one piece at a time if you want to. This means, for instance, that you can build your own customized system online, save money and then ensure that you are only getting exactly what you wanted and needed. There are lots of benefits to Macs, but when you buy one you are limited to whatever comes included.

There are a lot of absolute advantages to owning a Mac and one of those is how much support you can get. For Windows PCs, the support will vary quite a lot depending on who manufactured the computer and which store sold it to you. A little bit of research will prove that, for the most part, PCs have bad or (at best) mediocre customer service offerings. When you want top notch customer support you're forced to pay for it.

Macintoshes, though, have a much better reputation when it comes to tech support. Not only can you call them for help, they have a ton of repair centers out there where you can take your computer when you need it to be serviced instead of having to ship it off somewhere.

There will never be a final answer to the question of whether Windows or Mac OS is better. Both systems have fans and there are absolute advantages to each of them. You are going to need to carefully consider the needs you have, your budget, etc and then figure out which OS is best for all of those.
