    will try to evaluate the OS's i mostly know.
    Windows has been famous because it's user-friendly - easy to use kaya eto ang madalas gamit ng not too techy users. [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/smile.gif MacOS is most on GUI(Graphic User Interface). and OpenSource OS naman is widely use for executing inside programs, hacking maybe. stick na lang wa WinXP kung begginers and besides,[/img]user-friendly nga siya. [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/smile.gif alam ko magandang brand ng LT ay vaio - meron nito si Miggy, Laida at Direk. lol P.S. pa pala. WinVista, WinXP, Win98, WinMe are all of Windows OS's.[/img]

    windows xp - currently the most stable (i think)
    vista - andameng bugs, madameng di compatible na programs kahit may SP1 na (minimum requirement is 1GB Ram sa hardware)
    windows 7 - magiging kapalit ata ng vista pero beta version plang sya

    windows - user friendly

    mac os x - ok sa graphics, stylish, less prone sa virus, may konting kaibahan din sa mga keyboard shortcuts

    linux - Libre, open source, di pa ganong user friendly, pero maganda performance., madalas gamitin sa mga servers i think, di rin ganong prone sa virus

    magandang brand ng pc... lenovo ata or dell

    Which is "better" really depends on your applications. If you're just using simple software that runs commonly on most versions of Windows and have a small business, Windows 2000/XP/Vista will do just fine.

    Bigger corporations will want something like Windows NT/Server which is best suited for 100s to 1000s of users.

    As for "flavor" of operating systems, each has its drawbacks and advantages.

    Windows - currently the most widely known and has most applications suited for it, all-around operating system. With the arrival of XP, Windows became a highly stable OS unlike its predecessor Windows ME.
    Linux/Unix - the esoteric "programmer's" or "hacker's" operating system, best used for running web servers and other things which require high stability. Doesn't have as many programs as windows, but being open source, most of the apps are free. Flavors like Ubuntu make the user interface similar to Windows.
    Mac OS X - based off of Unix, it's like a cross of Windows and Unix together. Industry standard for graphics and multimedia (such as creating videos and music)

    No one operating system is really better. The important thing is which one suits your needs best. smile.gif

    na-se-sales talk na naman ako ng Mac. hehehe! tongue.gif alt=':p' ]

    Vaio is under Sony, i believe.

    for laptop brands, i drool over IBM ThinkPads. biggrin.gif alt=':D' ]
    Lenovo is now under IBM na di ba?
    Dell, decent, but so-so... so expensive for the specs. laugh.gif
    HP, Toshiba, Sony... decent and hip-looking.
    Compaq and Acer, affordable and ok for everyday use.

    minsan depende rin sa model. high-end Dells and HPs are comparable to ThinkPads. *biased, haha!*

    notice i didn't mention Macs. kuya ton, be our guest. hehehe!

    best OS? hmm..

    for me, WINDOWS 7.. haha!

    beta beta pa lang ang nirelease pero may mga nakita na akong reviews at previews, sabi nila, 20% more faster than Vista.

    Adeno has said it right....what suits one's need is right...

    Based on experience now, according to our IT's here, WINDOWS 7 'tho in its beta stage is okay. Much better than Vista...

    Well, adeno pretty much said it all, especially the last part. I think it is really more about personal preference. In regards to OS, I'm more partial to WinXP. Vista is more of a resource hog and Microsoft really didn't launch it well. There was so much software/hardware that wasn't compatible with it at launch time. That put a bad taste in my mouth. I decided to stick it out with XP until something "better" comes along. I haven't really played with Win7 yet, so I'll hold my judgement.

    From personal experience, I really wouldn't recommend Sony's VAIO. I've seen quite a few with hardware/software issues. I've had more luck with Toshiba and Dell notebooks.

    For me, VIsta...

    I admire its graphics, specially the AERO effect... and its security feature.. Unlike win98 , winxp, it can be easily bypass passwords on booting up the PC....

    I've been trying Windows 7 and it's amazing... feels like an advanced XP with the graphical beauty of Vista. Those are just initial thoughts. smile.gif
