Foundation of Information Technology ITS 1101 (operating systems)

There are so many operating systems available in the market that it’s difficult to decide which one is the best. Search the Internet for information on the following operating systems, and draw a table that compares them in terms of scalability, ease of use, reliability, and cost. The list of choices should include the current version of the following common operating systems:

  • Windows
  • Unix/Linux
  • MacOS

Below is an example of how the table can look:

Operating SystemScalabilityEase of UseReliabilityCost
Windows (version)
Unix or Linux
MacOS

In the table, specify the version of the operating system being reviewed for each category and rate each operating system on a scale of 1 to 3 (1 belonging to the operating system that is the highest in that category [e.g., 1=easiest to use]).

Based on the above analysis, state which operating system you recommend for the following requirements and your justification:

  • The finance department of XYZ Inc. has hired two trainees to work on a simple database application. Users are going to use the computer for the first time.
  • Smart Shoppers needs an OS with an easy-to-use interface and also the capability to support dual processors.
  • A non-profit organization wants to host a Web site and needs a computer to host the Web site. They want a cost-effective solution for hosting the Web
