Default What is the better? Mac, Windows or Linux?

I am using Linux right now but I am saving up money to get an Imac, can't wait for that!

Anyways, I wondered what is the better in your opinion and why?

Mine is Mac because it's just fast, no viruses and it just works right out of the box.

What about you?

These threads turn into personal attacks after a while.

It usually takes a while. Usually, it's a mac vs pc battle with one person who will start trashing the other option, often because they secretly want one, and whenever someone tries to contradict them, or say anything else, they will start moving to flaming and such.

I wish we could have an intelligent debate on operating systems, but sadly it just will not happen.

These discussions never end well, It's practically a fact. The best thing you can do is research them and decide what's better for you. Each OS has their ups and downs, and people prefer different operating systems.

Neither is "better". They both work equally as well for their intended purposes.

If one was clearly universally better than the others then the others would be eradicated. There's sides to all of them.

Can this thread not be locked? It's not like this hasn't been covered before (on here as well as elsewhere) and as others have pointed out, these threads just turn into personal attacks and go round in circles after a while.

All three are great in their own individual way.

Thread closed!

Shizzle. I don't have mod powers!

I've closed it. Personally, I don't see the point in these threads. Whatever works for you, works for you. Windows users/Mac users/Linux users.

Why compare when its your choice in the end anyway?
