What is your favorite operating system?
What Girls & Guys Said27
Android. I wish they'd make a desktop version, but Google decided not to.
They chose Chrome OS instead. But that's still better than standard Linux or Windows.
I have Windows 10 and MacOS.
They function perfectly fine for what I use it for. No complaints so far with either.
Depends on what I'm doing. My primary desktop machine is for gaming; I run Windows 10 on that. My work laptop has to run Microsoft Office with a bunch of plug-ins so that's Windows 10 as well. I have a server at home running Ubuntu 18.04, a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian and a router running pfSense.
At work, I have a virtual machine host running Ubuntu 18.04. It runs 7 virtual machines and all of them run Ubuntu 18.10 except for one, which runs openSUSE Tumbleweed.
At heart, I'm a Beastie. I ran FreeBSD on my desktop for almost a decade. Then I became a Debian guy. But let's face it: nobody actually runs either of those in production much any more. So at some point I gave up and started using Ubuntu. In a previous job, I had to use RHEL a lot, but I try to suppress those painful memories.
I have both Windows10 and Linux-ubuntu systems. Linux is more for work and Windows is more for gaming.
Favourite for what?
Linux is a great embedded development platform. I normally use ubuntu lts at work but now they've stopped 32bit i'm using a different distribution on my old laptop at home.
Windows is fine for office work although win 10 is rubbish on old hw and it doesn't attempt to maintain itself .
Android is a great consumer electronics platform. Their partitioning scheme leaves me pulling my hair out.
I'd like to buy a chromeos laptop for my web browsing and emails as it looks easy to maintain and secure. Since there's not a lot of apps to install, you really need to commit to Google though.
Apple os looks fine but I'm just not interested. There are cheaper alternatives and I hear its not as stable as they'd have you believe.
Windows10 is Great. xx
