So there are many operating systems. But, what is best for what. what is the difference between linux mac and windows just for example . what are the pros of these. i am especially curious about linux because everyone i know says its crap but it is slightly popular and i want to know why.

Well, all your friends say linux is crap probabaly because they have never used it and they think because its not popular, thats its no good.

Linux is better for usage because its not VERY well known like windows is, so people dont many viruses for it. And for other purposes that i dont know about.

they probably think it's crap because they cant use it.......microsoft makes OS for people who dont want to know about computers...just use them

everything gets done for you (not necessarily very well)

linux requires a bit of setting up but it's not too hard once you get into it.

I am running a linux firewall....nice and secure

heaps of webhosts use linux servers....heaps of businesses use linux servers.

the great thing is it's free......most distros only charge if you need support eg. business servers etc.

the downside of linux is that software manufacturers tend to write more for Windows because Microsoft has cornered the market...and a lot of hardware manufacturers provide seriously crappy drivers and support for linux
