Operating systems(parody) Answered

I thought I should start a parody of the battle of operating systems. With the new Windows 7 coming out what a great time to start! Here's my crack at it. Do you think it is good? Post your own here if you would like.

Linux has lots of cool wallpapers that take the piss.

I don't think the apple one is funny(sorry), but the Microsoft one is pretty good.

I was thinking that but how do you chose the operating system when the computer is on.

Mostly, I tend to run Mac OS X, but as and when I need to I run Windows inside of Mac using Vmware Fusion. I then also use linux on separate machines, not running atm, but building something that will no doubt be running it.

Vmware? How fast is it? You should try bootcamp...

From my experience, good.

It's alot better than having to reboot, select windows and then have to reboot again wait for windows to start and then when I'm finished reboot back into
OS X again.

Hmmm...Its pretty slow for me...Maybe because i'm on a laptop...
Anyways, How well do things like basic 3D games run? Have you tried blender under it? Or algodoo?

 For alot of programs it is the best idea, for simpler ones it does excel, say running MSN messenger, or something like publisher.

I have actually used it to play Left4Dead, and Portal, both auto chose the best settings, and ran without staggering. I did have to quit most of my big native apps. 

If Im heading for a proper gaming session I will reboot, but if not I vmware it.

Vmware fusion actually allows me to chose my bootcamp partition and load it as a virtual machine, which is a great feature.

I made one that combines an apple and windows logo. Awe snap, I can't find it on my photobucket account, that's not cool. I'll post it whenever I find it.

I tried Windows 7, it was only a little slower than XP, but at the same time I didn't try loading all the usual programs on it... But It wasn't that bad.

Glad to hear that, but did you get the complete product because I head that they are still working on it. Like patches and stuff
