Is Windows 7 better than OS X?

by on October 26, 2009

Q: I am am using a Macintosh and I was just wondering if it is true that Windows 7 is better than OS X? Even though I am a Mac user at heart, I want to know some general specifics why or why not. Also, please do not sugar coat it. I just want to know if what other people who bug me about having a Mac have any real arguments. I cannot find any reliable sources to back up either side on the web.

    I have not used Windows 7 so I really cannot say which is better but I can tell you I wont be moving away from OS X to Windows 7 anytime soon.

    I suggest you take a look at Windows 7 vs. Mac OS X Snow Leopard because it does have some useful information in it. It is a fun video that is meant to entertain just as much as it is meant to inform.

    They have their strengths and weaknesses, but that Windows 7 and OS X are being compared at the same level is a major win for Microsoft. I’m running Windows 7 on a laptop that’s a few years old and I’m very happy with it. I’m looking forward to upgrading the rest of the house over the next few months.

    Since you’re already a Mac user, you can always try running Windows 7 as a virtual install to see what all the fuss is about: http://lifehacker.com/5387463/access-a-windows-7-installation-in-mac-os-x-with-virtualbox
