The thread is off topic, but I can't resist.

Give me Linux any day. Unix had all the "new" features of Windows
95 and then lots -- twenty years ago!

But if I have to use one of those pitiful excuses for operating
systems foisted on the world by marketing, I'll take MacOS over
Windows any day. One big reason is that the Windows "paradigm" has
this complicated apparatus of program groups and icons AS WELL AS the
underlying file system structure. With the Mac those things are one
and the same. And Macs are just much easier to use. [My gainfull
employment involves looking after 60 Macs and 10 Windows machines, and
the 10 Windows machines are as much work as all the Macs put together.]
