  • This all really depends on what you want to use the system for.

    All systems need to be protected from hackers, virus's etc, they are all in the same boat here.

     

    As far as Security goes, you should not be questioning the Operating System but rather your security infrastructure like your firewall, intrusion protection and anti-virus systems. You need to be focusing on the best operating system to work productively within your business and then look at the security as a separate issue.

     

    WINDOWS is a supported and trusted solution that you will be able to gain much knowledge and support for.

    MAC is something that there is support for from Apple but not as much support from 3rd party specialists and communities.

    LINUX is an open source solution that works very well for many roles but is not supported, you will need to pay for support or use community forums.

     

    Unless you are an IT Professional that has good knowledge in MAC or LINUX then you should not be looking at these for a Business solution.

    WINDOWS is the most supported and common platform, you will just need to ensure you secure it properly which is something you will need to do for other Operating Systems as well.

     

    WINDOWS is the system must users are familiar with so this will mean better productivity for you business. Otherwise you are looking at time and money to train your staff in a new operating system.

  • Thank you brother for your information .

    About the Operating Systems WINDOWS, MAC, LINUX ...! 

    As you said about the security infrastructure like firewall, intrusion protection, Anti-virus, or Internet security

     

    sorry to inform you that their are some Hacker's who can also break the security, Firewall intrusion protection ? They only need's the way to enter just the way..........or if they find the Victim

    IP address  or if they trace Victim . They can also hack their pc or lappy  any time its not necessary to hack at the once & take away the whole data at once.

    My brother according to the New research HACKER'S are trying their best to hack any pc at the time its shutdown also... mean to say that at the offline mode also..................!

     

     

    As you said WINDOWS is the most supported and common platform  ???

    ok i agree that the WINDOWS is best but can you say that how can we able to Hide or change our Ip frequently...?

    I am well aware of this, the only way you will have complete security from hackers to is disconnect yourself from the internet and remain offline.

    This is the reality, firewalls etc will help with these issues. Frankly you are crazy not to run one because of this fact.

     

    You cannot hide your IP, but if you are on a dynamic IP you can get this changed frequently.

    However, changing this will affect business functions like remote access and cause issues with VPN's etc.

    You will get a lot more security out of a properly configured VPN than you will a dymanic IP address.

     

    From the sounds of it, you need to sit down with a security specialist and go over your concerns with them.

    The internet is not as bad and/or as unsafe as you make it out to be. Some more information and basic training will help you a lot.

    Short Sale San Diego is the best option to short sell your house as most of the short sales are negotiated under the guidance of a licensed broker. There are many teams of negotiators has been working with lenders to approve short sales since the downturn of the market. This team often compensated by the bank when your home sells. Also the rate of close is very high here.

  • For businessman graphical user interface softwares are the best. All windows softwares are Graphical user interface (GUIS) Business man don't has extra time to get in the depth of the operating system. So businessman just want the applications to be processed at faster pace with ease of handling the OS. So Windows Xp, windows vista, Windows 7 are the preffered operating systems over Linux.
