Thumbs up Why PC-BSD beats up Linux beats up Windows beats up Mac beats up Chromium
Let's start the big fight! Let's compare ten key areas to see why PC-BSD wins all the rest!

1. Stability
PC-BSD takes 1st place because it is based on the FreeBSD kernel, which is exceptionally stable.
Linux takes 2nd place because the kernel is not very stable, but programs like Plasma Workspace and Dolphin rarely crash in Linux.
Windows takes 3rd place because though the kernel is a bit stabler than that of Linux, some key programs like explorer.exe and Internet Explorer crash after a while when CPU usage is full and you click somewhere.
Mac takes 4th place because when something crashes in it, it is often the system kernel, and you need to do a hard reboot!
Chromium takes last place not because it is unstable, but because it isn't a complete OS!

2. User-friendliness
PC-BSD takes 1st place because of the great KDE 4.3.4 desktop with its host of applications out of the box and *.pbi support, FreeBSD port support, and Wine pre-installed.
Linux takes 2nd place because of the ability to install various window managers according to one's needs. However, installing software is a pain.
Windows takes third place because of its tons of 3rd party software that could practically do anything. It also natively comes with Internet Explorer 8, which is faster than Konqueror.
Mac takes fourth place mainly because of its difficulty in file management. Many universal shortcuts, like Alt+F4 and Ctrl+C, don't work on the Mac. Creating new partitions is completely out of the question. It also is the opposite of open-source, closing the software in its Apple Store and iTunes, and labling open-source software for the Mac and even 3rd-party sellers "unofficial".
Google Chromium OS doesn't even have the ability to install software, and it comes with nothing but a browser, and wants everybody to use Google Docs or Zoho to work. That's a pain in the ĺƨƨ to use!

Hahaha! And I was scolding draconian for doing this sort of thing. Aw well, it's an user's opinion in the right section. We might use it for a testimonial.

You are going to update this, right?

That's because you forgot to add the next update to GNU Hurd, which beats them all up.
XD

(I am kidding of course)

Google Chromium OS isn't even worth including. It's just a stripped down version of Linux that it built around "cloud computing" for data mining and locking you into all of Google's worthless apps. Google's OS is also mainly targeted at netbooks.

Apple's proprietary Mac OSX is an insult to the whole open-source community. Apple doesn't mind taking code from the BSD community and giving nothing back. Look at what they did to the OpenDarwin community. Hell, Safari’s HTML engine is derived from the codebase of Konqueror, KDE’s native web browser, yet when has Apple ever released Safari for Linux let alone FreeBSD?

Not everything...give Apple some credit. I heard the GCD is rocking pretty good.

According to AppleInsider's article "Apple Open Sources Snow Leopard's Grand Central Dispatch""

Quote:
"Opening the code to the community could help pave the way for its adoption. Writing for MacResearch, Drew McCormack noted, “Until today, it would have been very unlikely that any new UNIX tools would be developed on Mac OS X using Grand Central, simply because they would only run on the Mac. With the possibility that Grand Central will become available on other UNIX systems, the likelihood that Grand Central will be incorporated into command line tools is greatly increased.”

McCormack said there was little risk to Apple of sharing its new code, saying that it was “unlikely that Grand Central would be used by any direct competitor to Apple, like Microsoft,” and noting that its adoption by other Unix and Linux systems would not “really pose a threat to Apple’s consumer-based business.”

I wouldn't expect anything less coming from Apple. =) It's a business after all. My point is that at least they do give something back, even if only when it doesn't detriment their business. Something is better than nothing no?

The same can't be said of their competitors.

Now GCD is a pot of gold, imo. Free code paid for by fully paid developers ?...LOL, that's something for nothing for us.

Default Re: Beating up all competition
Galraedia said, in part:
"Google's OS is also mainly targeted at netbooks."

My reply:
You've GOT to be kidding! Well, not really, I'm sure. I've got an Acer AAO and an Asus Eee and I wouldn't even think of using screw-gle's junk on it just BECAUSE it's a cloud app. Gotta' wonder what kind of moron would want the world to have access to their files, archives, etc., anyway.

As for pcbsd "beating up" all the others, I can't really see that here, as my cameras don't work with it, and wifi is also out with it. Both of these are needed on the netbooks and a lot of laptops. Since bsd is waaay behind on these, I think that, although it's great on my desktop machine, I still can't say it "beats up" linux. Some linux distros, to be sure, but not all. The rest? Yep. I'll continue to use bsd on my desktop, but stay with linux on the netbooks, and thank God I don't have to worry about regular laptops.

This, of course, is my own opinion based on my own experience with stuff over the past 15 years or so. Ahhh, for the "good ole' days" when there were only a few linux distros and one bsd!

Edit: See above. =)

Yeah, I think he got the two of us mixed up. I actually said that.
