A few months ago we started this discussion which got into a fight. They closed the thread since it wasn't in the techie's lounge, so I'm going to start it again. Please respond to this and fight or debate whatever. Please argue with me!
Here is my perfect world
Mac --> should be used by the regular home user. Macs are easy to use, have all the software a user will ever need incorportated in it. Although not cheap, Macs are built to last. The average user will never have a problem with a mac. The are also to be used by artists, photographers and video editors. Alos for school settings.
Linux --> To be used in workstations and servers. There are a lot less viruses for linux than windows. Linux provides stability and security that enterprises need. Programmers and software developers are to use Linux. Nerds should also use Linux.
Windows --> Windows has a lot of business features. it Should only be used for a business setting and/or school setting. Windows is a powerful operating system that provides many features businesses could use. There is also a plentiful number fo programs and software out there for windows. This is also a very tweakable system, so it meets the business' needs.
So there you have it, my perfect world.
The world we live in:
Mac --> Used by artists, photographers, video editors, and a handful of home users.
Linux --> It's starting to be used by companies, but not very much. Used mostly by nerds.
Windows --> Used by everyone. You to your school and what do they have? windows. You go to the public library, windows. You go to a restaurant, windows. It's taken over the world.
So there it is. Please argue, I love debate and fighting with people. ;)
