    Between linux's simplicity, Windows diversity, and the beautful interface of Mac OS. which do you prefer?

    Personally I've been using windows for the longest time I could remember due to how easy it is to find a specific software for different needs. I did use Linux but the operating system as a server on my past job but that is for work and haven't seen or did any other stuffs that you usually do with your personal computer.

    How about everyone's experience on operating systems?

    For me, macOS is just much more pleasant. Everything works together. Visuals are pleasant. No 3rd party junk. I don't have embedded ads from Apple hidden throughout the OS. Everything runs smoothly. I enjoy using my Mac.

    I prefer Windows because Windows is a series of operating system develop by Microsoft. Each version of windows includes a graphical user interface with a desktop that allows users to view files and folders in windows.Windows has been the most widely used operating system for personal computers.

    I use both Windows and Linux(Mint).For general day to day work like email/browsing I prefer windows because of the freedom it gives you over the machine.For development/professional work I prefer Linux(Mint or other versions) because it is open source with a very supportive online community.

    I enjoy Windows the most. But for business and programming, Linux is the best, and also there are not that much viruses for Linux like there are for Windows.

    By preference, I will always use Linux, and by forced necessity, also use Windows quite often. But for the exact opposite reasons of what OP states, making me think their statements are quite striking.
    Linux is a very customizable system which allows you to dig extremely deep and have total and absolute control and interaction with all the parts of it. It has a modular nature, which makes it able to function beautifully even as you swap and reconnect programs in all creative ways possible - something you can't even dream about in Windows. So to call Linux simple and Windows diverse goes right into the territory of an oxymoron.

    I use Linux exactly because I can work with it in depth and create all kinds of functions and customization that fit my workflow down to every detail, and Windows only because some specific software required for professional reasons is only available in it. And, as far as I know, considering the demographic of people that do explore more than one OS in their lives, the ones that stick to Windows do it for the same reason. Basically, for how it is a kind of safe port for big companies to only release their products for it - the opposite of diversity.

    I'm using windows right now so I'll g o for windows. Honestly ever since I encounter computer, window is always its operating system. I was already in college when I found out that there are other OS other than this. I wanted to try or even see other OS on actual computer but sad to say most of the people I know and most of the offices I've been are using windows. Well as what our teacher told us before windows is tho most common and user friendly OS so that is why most number of the population using computers are having windows as their OS. Hopefully one of these days I encounter the other OS.

    Windows, since it is very common, it is very flexible than mac. I mean... computers are different to phones

    I use windows, but that is because i need to use programs that only work on windows. Wine isn't reliable enough to run windows only programs at the moment, so i'm kinda stuck with windows. I also have a lot of games that I play, and some of them are windows only. Window's is easier to use, but linux allows you more power than both Mac or Windows.

    I use Linux. I first tried my hand with it when an old laptop barely functioned anymore under Windows. It's open source, therefore available to anyone. It's also secure because it's less vulnerable to viruses and malware. There's also a lot of distributions that provide different flavors for users to pick depending on their needs and preferences. Linux is also pretty stable and its performance rarely disappoints and if you need help, the community is great. Best of all: it's absolutely free.
