The battle of the OS

Being a PC user since `85, I wouldn’t deny that I’ve grown with Windows 1.0 although it wasn’t until December just before the year ended that I got my hands on what was Microsoft’s first true attempt at a graphical user interface in 16-bit.

As for Linux, it was in 1993 that I got to fiddle it as someone more familiar with DOS rather than Unix, thanks to RedHat! It was the open source model that encouraged me to use as my daily driver.

I got my hand on an Apple in `86 — Macintosh II; but it was a loaner.

Fast track 2013, when I finally got a late 2013 iMac 27″, which I upgraded to macOs Catalina from OS X Mountain Lion this year. Again I ain’t a big fan of ????; it’s been collecting dust in my room.

I successfully managed to install ChromeOS in my HP X360 Convertible sometime in October 2019 after watching a YouTuber do a review of Chromebook. It was originally running Windows 10 Home OEM installation.

The good thing about having get used to Linux and using ChromeOS is that you can use Crosh without a hitch. As Android  is a mobile operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel. The same thing is true whn it comes to using Mac. Mac OS is based on a BSD code base; while Linux is an independent development of a Unix-like system.
