Default Windows

Who do you think give windows the most competition the OS market?

Personally I have to say its deffinately not mac. Considering mac is extemerly limited in hardware, and software etc i'd have to say linux. For one its free, for two you can do a lot on it. What do you guys think.

Lets see... Windows.. Mac, Linux. There really isnt too much of a competition. Servers = linux. Mac is usually video editing and producting and Windows is the standard for computer users.

I think linux is windows biggest competition.

Linux is great to run SOME servers on. Like Apache running a webserver. However IMO some server software runs far better on windows. Having Linux or Mac being a PDC is ugly.

Default Re: Windows

I use Windows right now, but I'll probally be formatting to Linux soon..
Linux is getting more popular as becoming the main O/S for some..
At one point in time, it was almost unheard of but now its growing in popularity.
