Pick The Best OS For Your Life

Often people react that OpenSource people hate Microsoft. Let me correct this; some might, but not all! In my opinion you have to use a given operating system in the area where it’s excels.

So I’m going to post an excerpt from the “OS Wars: The Battle for Your Desktop” (from PCmag):

  • WEB SURFER
    Any OS. You don’t need anything fancy to browse the Web and send e-mail.
  • OFFICE DRONE
    Windows. Get things done with minimal fuss.
  • GAMER
    Windows. Millions of gamers can’t all be wrong. (Or buy a Nintendo Wii.)
  • PHOTOGRAPHER
    Windows. All cameras work with it, and the imaging tools are plentiful.
  • VIDEOGRAPHER
    Mac OS. It’s what the pros in -Hollywood prefer.
  • ARTIST/MUSICIAN
    Mac OS. The other artsy people will laugh at you if you use anything else.
  • TECH DO-IT-YOURSELFER
    Ubuntu. You’ll get the most satisfaction from taming this somewhat wild beast.
  • OPEN-SOURCE SUPPORTER
    Ubuntu. Not lining the pockets at Apple and Microsoft just feels good.
