OSx vs. Windows 8


OSx is a great OS. Amazing performance, great for users that want a very stable platform. However when trying to interact with a corporate environment it becomes very apparent that there are some major gaps in applications for business use vs. those of consumer use.

The more and more I tried to use OSx for everyday use the harder and harder I found it to complete my daily tasks without having to boot up a Virtual Machine to complete Visio Drawings, or Project files. So being the geek I am, I decided to give Windows 8 a try again. This time I decided to give it my full attention… After just a day, I started realizing that Windows 8 is pretty unique. It is a nice feeling while you are in the Consumer “Style” time slices vs. Enterprise “Style” time slices.

Integrations with Dropbox, SkyDrive, DataNow, Office Suite, etc… You name it, things for the Enterprise life just seem to be running WAY better.

Granted if I were a professional photographer or video editor there would be no debate OSx it would be. However when trying to maintain both Personal life and Business Life, hands down it is Windows, and Windows 8 is super-fast, extremely stable, and Manages Memory as good or better then OSx.

Also when it comes to games, nothing really compares to Windows, trying to find games that are OSx native applications it was pretty disappointing.

Thanks for Reading.
