    There are many operating systems and each of us uses different operating systems. However, the question is which one is the best? Which one should we use? This question is hard as each operating system has its own advantages depending on the area you are using it for. For example, many say that Linux is the best operating system for programming. Which one is the best in your opinion?

    Of course, as you already stated, every operating system has its own uses, but I think that Ubuntu, a version of Linux, is the best due to its versatility. Ubuntu is perfect for programmers, evident in the number of Linux servers run on Ubuntu, it has easy operating systems associated with it, such as certain versions of Puppy Linux, and its great for hackers as it has the very famed Kali Linux running on its code.

    It really depends on what you are going to use your computer for. If you want your computer to have good security and a clean look then MacOS would be best. If you want a computer that is for gaming or everyday use then go for windows. If you are using your computer for coding then Linux will be good. I prefer Windows because it is good for everything. It is compatible with a lot of apps and software. It also has really high security which is good for a every day work/gaming computer.

    Operating systems make it easy to interact with your PC. With many options, sometimes you can get confused about which one to choose. I would say that it all comes down to personal preference and working environment. There will be times when Windows would be ideal and not Mac OS. The same goes for other types of operating system. If you are a newbie, you should find Windows being user friendly. Those who are into open source and technical aspects of operating systems, then the Linux based OS would be perfect.

    I agree with sammhung's statement here. It really does depend on how you are going to use your computer. May I also add that Linux also has good security, since hackers mostly strike Windows systems. If you can adjust with coding stuff here and there, Linux can be a good substitute from the 'mainstream' OS.

    Mac OS is good, if and only if, your unit is a Macbook in the first place. Hackintosh (computers not really designed for Macbook but was given the Mac OS) can have issues with drivers, hardware, etc. It is also not true that Mac OS do not have viruses. Just like Windows, it also has viruses lying around online if you're not careful with how you use your computer.

    Windows has a bad reputation for having so many viruses, because it is the most popular OS out there. No wonder hackers make viruses for Windows. The good thing about Windows being the most popular is that there are many programs and games available for the system. If you're a gamer, it is a no-brainer to use Windows instead.
