22/07/2009

WE LEARN ABOUT CHAPTER 3. MISS AZURA GAVE US A HOMEWORK:
THE DIFFERENCES AMONG MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND APPS MACINTOSH

There is a major difference between Apple's Macintosh Operating System(Mac OS) and Microsoft's Windows Operating System(Windows). Nevertheless, they do share some things...
They both use a windowed-style GUI (Graphical User Interface), and contain a program for using the CLI (Command Line Interface) portion.
Their differences are much more numerous...

Many criticize Windows for being stubborn and unresponsive in times of great amounts of computing or operating, as well as being more complicated and having a lot less features. It is also criicised, in its latest incarnation, Windows Vista, for copying many features from the Mac OS (especially Mac OS X).

Mac OS (X), on the other hand (after tranlating from the former Mac OS 1-9 to Mac OS X) is usuall praised for its simple and easyness of use. It is also praised for its streamlined look and features, as well as effective and efficient system and "force quit" system, in case of any unresponiveness.

Mac OS, formerly a Power PC Operating System, is typically only used on Apple's hardware(reffered to as "Macs"), while Windows is typically universal. (Since Apple switching to Intel Processors, many people have found ways to install the Mac OS on non-Apple PCs (known simply as PCs)

Mac OS as been known more for its attractiveness to creative industries, such as the movie industry, and for those who are more, "fun-oriented", while Windows is usually catagorized with businesses, and what people call "boring-people"
