and control panel calibrations that are similar to Mac OS X. Windows and Mac have kernel design, system admin, and parental controls. Microsoft Windows offers the most security software available to the public for personal operating systems and utilizes the use of anti-virus software and spyware. Mac OS X does not use any other software other than what is built in such as Gatekeeper. UNIX/Linux is a stronger system that prevents unauthorized execution of software and is less likely to become infected. With Mac OS X if the code is written well enough to get past the kernel then it can be infected. With Windows if it comes across a program that is coded wrong and the virus is redirecting it. Windows will run the program anyway no matter what the damage may cause.When it comes to Linux and Widows and their differences the major one is the open source design. Windows system does not allow others to add-on software to already existing software on the system. Linux has an open source design and allows others to add-on to already existing software. Many times if you install software from unknown publishers you run the risk of getting errors in the codes for the program. Many times this is purely by accident but in some cases it is done on purpose, so it is best not to put the system at risk. Many times software engineers discover errors and security threats so they will develop a fix for the program with updates. This is why it is always important to make sure your programs on your computer system are always up to date. In conclusion with the contrast and comparison of operating systems, it comes down to what the business needs, employee skill sets, and personal choice when deciding which operating system to use for business and personal use of operating systems. Each operating system that we have compared and

(2012) operating systems have advanced over the years and the designs from each system’s kernel have maximized the processing potential .
