    While I was reading some articles in the net I was wondering what OS do you prefer for your computer. Is Mac the best, or you prefer Linux or Windows? I've been using all of them and now I'm with Mac.

    If you are looking for professional business purpose Mac is the best choice and also any graphics field( vfx, video making, film editing etc). Windows is very user-friendly that also suitable.

    As for me, i make use of windows 8 since i am already been used to it for a very long time and because of its simplicity and easy-to-use features.

    Linux for me, thank you.

    Since iOS and Windows are considered spyware, I am afraid they are out of question.

    I have been using windows since many years and I am still on Windows 7. yea, I upgraded to windows 10 but somehow, I am drawn back to windows 7. Its the best OS Microsoft has ever made.

    My brother purchased a MAC but I it does not impress me. Windows help me do everything right from business to gaming.

    Windows and iOS are Operating Systems. Although they may be vulnerable to spyware, they are necessary for the operation of the computer on which they are installed, and are not themselves considered spyware. In any case, I have been a Windows user for many years, and have always had ay least one antivirus software on my computer, and have rarely had a problem. I am currently running both Avast and Malwarebytes, and both work very well.

    I don't think it's limited too. Different peoples have different choices. But for me I like use Windows 7 honestly. Though I upgrade my windows to 10 few months ago. But I still prefer Windows 7.

    Agree with you on that :) MAC didn't impress me neither so i went back to win 7. After that i was forced to upgrade to win 10 for dx 12 support but had other problems ( sound related ). Now i am back to win 7 but i sense some mictosoft rejection on that OS:( No matter what sooner or later we'll be forced to use win 10. Microsoft took that road already.

    I prefer Windows because of I am using it from many years and I use Ubuntu but when it freeze then it lack of Task Manager to kill hang program but once it freeze then I need to restart so I prefer Windows.

    Windows 7, 10 and Windows Server OS are very nice. (Windows 7 and 10 is useful on local PC and Windows Server on RDP)

    I been using Win. 7 since like 5 years now and I highly recommend it. I have tried almost all the OS out there and 7 is by far the best and also most of the tools that I require for my daily tasks work well with the version.

    To this day I still use Windows XP as I have been using it for the last 12 years. I know Microsoft has stopped the support but I just love the OS and also it's very light as compared to other OS.

    Most secure are MacOS and Linux, however if you want to use all available applications and programs you need to have Windows, as it's most popular OS.
    I'd prefer Mac, because I already use it and really happy
