Been doing a podcast about that for a couple of years now. So i can say that each has its own charm and power. There is still a way to go for the hardware support in Linux and we need more apps, Windows needs a smidge more customisation (although it is making strides) and Apple should either stop making OSX (and desktops/laptops) alltogether and focus on the Mobile market OR give the desktop the attention it deserves. In the last couple of years I've seen a couple of major shifts.„„Linux : Too much attention to various distro's (including a lot of infighting about what graphical user interface is the best. Good applications (like for example Thunderbird and Firefox) are underdeveloped. „„Windows : Windows is taking big strides to be 'everywhere' Windows 10 is not perfect but Redmond makes big inroads for Linux developers with WSL and deployng Windows apps on Linux. „„Mac : Ios is becoming an platform all on its own and Cupertino definately has plans to have the iPad become a full fledged computer for many of us. When they crack decent screen mirroring there will be very little left to do befor an iPad becomes a full laptop replacement.„„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ War Ensemble BBS - The sport is war, total war - warensemble.com„
