Differentiate windows, linux, unix, mac, and mobile operating systems.


Research on the Internet to determine at least six criteria upon which you will base a comparison of operating systems (examples might be reliability, speed, security). Create a table that lists your criteria as the rows of the table and lists the operating systems as the columns of the table. Operating systems should include Windows, IOS®, Android®, OS X®, Linux, and Unix. Enter in-depth information on each of the criteria for each operating system. Once your table is complete, write 1–2 paragraphs describing what you feel is the best use for each operating system, and justify what you state based on the facts presented in your table.

Provide a complete list of references below the table, using appropriate APA format.

Make sure the Assignment includes:

  • A table that has six criteria to compare operating systems.
  • A table that compares the following operating systems: Windows, IOS, Android, OS X, Linux, and Unix.
  • In-depth information is provided for each criterion for each operating system.
  • One to two paragraphs below the table that describe the proposed best use for each operating system. This is supported and justified by the information in the table provided.
  • A complete list of references at the end of the paper.
