  • This semester I am studying Systems Programing - so I get a good look at all the hard work that goes into producing an operating system. Not an easy task - however, the hardware archticture takes a very big role on how the OS will handle certain things. Overall it is really the programer’s job to decide how to take advantage of certain things. Obviously these two companies can learn somethings from each other and come up with a better design that will benefit both systems. For now, as a user, we need to really think of what type of system we will use and need to use. Of course, having one of each is always an alternative if you can afford it.
