features and functions of different operating systems In this report I will briefly explain about the features and functions of different operating systems. I have chosen to compare windows 7 Mac OS. Windows 7 Windows 7 Microsoft Windows is most commonly used in operating system. Recently the latest version of Windows is released as Windows 8 and it’s commercially available now. There are different editions of Windows 7 available to suit your needs such as (Home Premium, Enterprise, Ultimate, Professional, Starter, and Home Basic).

The use interference of Windows 7 is called Windows aero and it’s very easy to use. It’s a WIMP (Windows, Icons, Menu, and Pointing Device) environment. It comes with some useful pre-installed application and multiple free software trials. It also comes with free antivirus software called Microsoft Essentials.
Windows 7 also offers a large help and support for the users by having Windows Action Center. Also it’s very customizable by the users with the range of themes, wallpapers, Styles and Gadgets. Also it has the task bar where you can pin your favorite applications. It’s very easy to install new devices in the Windows 7. Windows will automatically install the drivers for some software and you can start using the device instantly without having to installing the drivers. However for some devices you need to install the drivers manually.

But it’s very easy to install the drivers manually in windows. File management of the windows 7 has improved than the previous versions and it’s now very easier to access the files and manage the folders. File management system of windows 7 is very reliable. Mac OS Mac OS Mac OS is the operating system developed by Apple. It also has various versions available to the users. Mac OS has the simple user interface for ease of access. The graphics interface of a Mac is called Aqua. It comes with some useful software.
Mac OS are designed to be a more professional system, to be used by large businesses who work with computers. However it’s expensive to purchase than windows 7. Mac OS is also customizable with the use of wallpapers, Menu Bar and the Dock. Mac OS has many unique functions of user interfaces. File management of the Mac OS is very easy. It has the Finder search bar to organize and manage files. You can View the files in a variety of ways. Also it automatically sorts the files by name, date, or in ascending or descending order.
It’s easy to find files using features like Spotlight and Quick Look make finding the file you’re looking for effortless. Mac OS comes with good software such as Mail, Calendar, Safari web browser, Preview PDF and image viewer, iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and Garage Band. It’s very reliable because it has more security than windows. To conclude I would prefer Windows 7 rather than Mac OS because windows is more user friendly and it costs less than Mac OS. Also it the file management and the customer support are better with windows.
