Everyone knows that the competition between Windows and Mac is the most powerful battle in the field of technology, each one trying to be more superior to the other. Both of them have got their unique features that are most liked by the users. The point is, it’s always confusing which OS laptop or PC to buy. In this Post I will show you the comparison of Windows 8 with the Mac OS X Mountain Lion and try to help in finding which one is more suitable for your needs. With the new Updates in both Windows 8 and Mac recently, I have shown here the basic difference of both this Operating System.
1. User Interface
Windows 8 Update 3 has still the same live Tiles but with the bigger sizes now. You can easily get the updates from Social networking sites, Weather information and news guidelines at one single glance. On the other side of Mac OS have a simple interface including iOS launch- pad apps from where you download your apps, a notification centre where you get all the new updates of Weather and stock marketing and a bunch of your favourite apps. It is not so good look wise, but it’s much simpler and easy to use.
From hardware point of view, Windows lets you to upgrade whatever you want while on the other side Mac doesn’t allow. Windows users previously faced the problem of error sometime- Windows 7 not genuine fix that seemed as a barrier when the users tried to update anything but this error is now fixed in Windows 8. Windows users are benefited like everything is made for them, in Mac it’s not so flexible to use. So in the terms of Flexibility, Windows is more flexible.
Many People feel that the cost of Mac is much higher than the Windows, but the fact is that Mac uses a higher quality hardware, that works faster and you can even get the benefit of Apple’s ecosystem. Mac hardware has limitations when it comes to specifications that are not seen in Windows.
Windows comes up with tons of useful software. The number of software windows provides is 50,000 approx while Apple Provide only 14,000 which is a huge difference. So in terms of Software, Windows has been always a winner. Though it always depends on the public what they choose and go for.
5. Virus and Security
It is obvious that Microsoft has much more virus. Due to the immense programming, it is always tracked by the viruses. On the other hand it is clearly seen that Mac with less programming extent is affected less by the virus. Also the Security in Mac is much higher than the Windows. Mac is much safer to use than the Windows.
As far as OS is looked after, Apple has to extend its horizon in the field of programming so the programming developers are much more benefited. While Windows need to work on the Graphic User Interface (GUI) and Viruses so that the laptops and PCs are not much infected and safe to use. Above all these pros and cons of both the systems, it’s concluded that if you are a developer or programmer, choose the OS Windows and if you’re using for personal purpose and if the MacBook is affordable to you than go For Mac OS.
