Both OSes offer clear and polished thiết lập processes. You can use both without signing in to lớn an tài khoản with Apple or Microsoft, but both offer a richer experience if you bởi. You’ll miss out on syncing machines, voice assistants, app roaming, messages, và a whole lot of other goodies by not signing in.

Microsoft lets you install the OS with your voice using Cortana. Apple installs updates through the System Preferences instead of in the Mac App Store. Both automatically recognize và install drivers for standard hardware peripherals such as mice, keyboards, và storage.

Winner: Tie


Logging In and Getting Started

*

Both systems offer login options that go beyond the traditional act of simply signing in on your desktop. If you have sầu a MacBook phiên bản Pro with a Touch Bar, you can easily sign inkhổng lồ your Mac using your finger. Or you can log in with your iPhone or Apple Watch if they are cthua trận enough to the computer.

But Windows 10 offers Hello with several biometric login options. Face login is probably the coolest, và is available on most higher-over PCs, including all Surface devices. Windows Hello also supports fingerprint readers, available on laptops such as the HP.. Spectre 13. If you don’t have sầu hardware that"s compatible with either of those features, Windows will also accept a PIN.

Once you’ve sầu booted the OS, Windows has the Start button & menu to lớn access your most-used apps, settings, & documents. There"s nothing similar in macOS, but you can pin frequently used apps to your Dochồng, head lớn the Applications thư mục, or set up your desktop with icons for your most-used programs và files. You can also use Launchpad icon khổng lồ page through và start apps.

Winner: Windows 10


Hardware Choices

*

Apple offers some great computer hardware options, with gorgeous industrial kiến thiết on Macbooks, optional 5K screens on iMacs, & the new, massively powerful Mac Pro (starting at $5,999). The issue is that selection is not only pricey, but it"s also dwarfed by the availability of an enormously diverse array of Windows PCs. To those, you can add nontraditional options lượt thích the HoloLens, VR headsets, và the Raspberry Pi, which can all also run Windows 10. There"s also a wider array of Windows-friendly peripherals to choose from.

As for internal components—things lượt thích the CPU, graphics card, and storage—there’s no contest. Windows gives you a lot more leeway in configuring a system with the components you want, và more flexibility khổng lồ tăng cấp later.

Winner: Windows 10


Both operating systems offer a wealth of built-in utilities & apps. You get decent mail clients, calendars, calculators, pholớn and Clip viewers & editors, screenshot tools, voice recorders, & web browsers, & apps for maps, cameras, news, weather, & contacts. Microsoft throws in nifty Sticky Notes, Skype, Translator, và Xbox gaming apps. But macOS includes a superior đoạn phim editor, a pReviews utility, & a streaming music service. It also throws in the awesome GarageB& music composition app and a full productivity suite.

Winner: macOS


Both platforms have had time lớn develop rich ecosystems of software và services. Custom business applications are more likely khổng lồ be supported on Windows, and macOS is prevalent in creative fields. That said, you can find plenty of good general business software for Macs, và Windows actually boasts more options in some creative areas, such as video clip editing and photo lớn software.Both operating systems offer app stores that manage installation và updating, but sadly the app developers haven’t given the attention to these desktop stores the way they have sầu to their Mobile counterparts. On a related note, I still find it odd that some macOS apps makes you drag a disk image lớn the Applications folder, & that"s just one of at least three different ways to install apps on a Mac. Windows ứng dụng installation is more straightforward.

Winner: Tie


Both operating systems offer decent leeway for customization, but we are past the days of drastic interface overhauls. That said, both OSes offer choices in desktop backgrounds, screen thắng lợi sizes, & screen savers. Dark modes are the new rage, và both Mac và Windows offer them. Mac’s version is a bit more systemwide, with some older Windows dialogs still not darkened. The Windows 10 May 2019 Update adds a Custom option, which lets you decide whether you want dark or light mode for system elements, apps, or both.

Both OSes come with excellent, plug-and-play multiple monitor support, though Windows offers a bit more control. With Windows, you can span program windows across the multiple screens, whereas in macOS, each program window can only live on a single display. If you’re truly gung-ho on interface customization, I recommover Linux, which offers a selection of completely different user interface shells.Winner: Tie

The search box in Windows 10 displays at all times, & typing in it pops up a panel with file, ứng dụng, và website results. My Mac-loving colleagues swear by Apple’s Spotlight feature, but I’ve never found it satisfactory. Both search features will do math; show you the weather, stoông xã prices, and sports results; or find nearby Tnhị restaurants without breaking a sweat.Both OSes also now let you search with your voice, with Cortana on Windows and Siri on macOS (see the AI Helper section below). With the May 2019 Update, Windows follows Apple"s strategy of separating the voice tìm kiếm from typed searches, separating out the Cortana icon from the tìm kiếm bar.

Winner: Tie


Apple finally introduced some touch capability in macOS, but it’s only available on certain Macbook Pros through the cảm biến Bar. Windows 10 has always had full touch screen support, & it offers a Tablet mode that lets you switch between using the screen và keyboard for inputs (provided, of course, that your máy tính is equipped with a touch panel). There’s a good selection of convertible laptop/tablets on the market to lớn take advantage of this. I use my Surface Go exclusively as a tablet.

Pen đầu vào is another win for Windows. The support for styli on touch screens is robust, with incredibly good handwriting-to-text conversion. You can use a pen anywhere you enter text.

You can use your voice for text đầu vào in any ứng dụng in both OSes. To vì this in macOS, you have khổng lồ specifically enable it. Once voice dictation is turned on, you can access it by double-tapping the Fn key. In Windows 10, just hit Windows Key-H (for hear) and you"re off and dictating. Both work in any text field.

Winner: Windows 10


Cortamãng cầu arrived on Windows 10 a good year before Siri made it lớn the Mac, and is still more capable in a few important ways. Both can open apps và website pages, tell you the weather, change system settings, bởi vì math, control smart trang chủ devices, mix reminders, sover emails, và tìm kiếm the web. Both can be invoked by voice. But Siri can’t log out of or shut down the computer, something I find very useful at the end of the day when I’m walking away from my PC. Cortana can now even skết thúc requests lớn Amazon"s Alexa.

Winner: Windows 10


Windows has been making great strides in integrating the OS with Mobile devices. Apps for iOS và Android let you piông xã up on one device where you left off on another, even letting you sover a website page from your phone to lớn your PC’s browser. Android devices in particular are well served by Windows with the Launcher & Your Phone apps, which let you mô tả documents & website pages & conduct SMS messaging across devices.

Despite these promising initiatives, Apple’s integration between macOS computers and iOS-running thiết bị di động devices soundly beats what Windows offers. The macOS Notifications panel lets you skết thúc text messages by syncing up to lớn a nearby iPhone, all your photos can be shared across devices in Apple Photos, you can transfer almost anything with AirDrop, & you can even engage in đoạn Clip calling with FaceTime between devices. Apple Watch is yet another piece of the integrated ecosystem that Windows can’t match. For example, you can unloông xã your Mac when your watch is in proximity, and the same notifications flow to both.

Even more unification between macOS and iOS is coming, with universal apps that you"ll be able to buy on either platform và have sầu it work on both, as well as on iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS.

Winner: macOS


One of the most frustrating things for me about macOS occurs when I clichồng on a running app’s Doông chồng ibé, & its window doesn’t appear on the screen. That"s because macOS is more document-based, while Windows is program-based. So when you cliông chồng on an app"s inhỏ in the Doông chồng, you may just see its menu at the top, but no program window. In Windows, tapping a taskbar inhỏ always brings up the associated program.The macOS Doông chồng has made strides over the past few years, with its nifty mouse-over magnification và Mojave"s new feature that displays the icons of recently used apps. But the Windows taskbar is more functional. Hover the mouse over a taskbar button and you’ll see a thumbnail miniature of its program window. Taskbar Jump Lists let you see recent files opened in the ứng dụng or jump lớn frequently needed actions in that program.

Winner: Windows 10


This take could just be due to my greater experience with Windows, but whenever I work on a Mac, I’m frustrated by how program windows are managed & arranged. As mentioned in the Taskbar vs. Doông xã section, clicking on a Doông chồng icon doesn’t always open the program’s windows.

Microsoft"s OS makes it easier to arrange windows on the screen. Want an phầm mềm khổng lồ take up exactly half the screen? Snap it to lớn the left or right edge. How about have sầu it display on a quarter of the screen? Snap it lớn any of the screen corners. If you run apps side-by-side, the border between them can be resized. If you want to show or switch khổng lồ the desktop behind any running apps, cliông xã to lớn the very far right of the taskbar. The conveniences go on.

Both operating systems let you create multiple virtual desktops. Windows now combines the desktop switcher with the Timeline feature (as shown in the screenshot above). This does clutter the Task View screen, but it can be damned useful if you"re trying khổng lồ get baông xã lớn a webpage or document for which you"ve forgotten the location.

And finally, my favorite Windows window-management trick: Hold và shake the mouse key on a window title bar to minimize everything else.

Winner: Windows 10


In recent Windows updates, the File Explorer has improved, with Quick Access being a favorite new feature. This makes it easy to lớn find the last tệp tin you saved, no matter what it was or where you saved it. The Finder’s Recents thư mục does the same thing. Window’s File Explorer contains standard libraries for comtháng file types such as Documents, Pictures, & Music. These are sort of metafolders lớn which you can add any other relevant folder. macOS doesn’t offer a similar capability.

One macOS feature that Windows lacks is the ability to lớn have sầu multiple tabs in a Finder window. Finder also lets you quickly pĐánh Giá files in the Pđánh giá utility. Both display pReviews of documents on the right side of the Explorer/Finder windows, let you choose which phầm mềm lớn open a tệp tin with, and let you easily cốt truyện files with a right cliông chồng.

Winner: Tie


Windows includes at least two apps that let you enter the world of 3D and VR. The 3D Viewer phầm mềm lets you, well, view 3 chiều models in a pair of goggles or on screen, & Windows’ Mixed Reality Viewer phầm mềm works with VR headsets exclusively, giving you a virtual portal lớn VR apps. Two of the most popular VR headsets—HTC Vive sầu & Oculus Rift—only work with Windows. And we can"t forget the device that runs Windows 10 called the HoloLens, which is all about augmented reality.Apple has made some progress toward VR support. You can edit 360-degree video clip nội dung in Final Cut Pro X with external enclosures for graphics cards that are VR-capable. Apple’s ARKit augmented reality only works in iOS for now.

Winner: Windows 10


Hardcore gamers don’t even need lớn look at this section. While there are plenty of excellent games available for macOS, and there’s even a version of Steam for the platsize, Macs typically don"t allow the cấp độ of internal component customization that"s possible with PC Gaming.

When it comes to lớn game selection, there are many more top-màn chơi titles on Steam that are compatible with Windows than macOS. Even PlayStation games are available on Windows through Sony’s PlayStation Now service, và you can stream games to your PC through the Xbox phầm mềm. With Play Anywhere, games you buy on the Microsoft Store can be loaded on either your PC or your Xbox console, including exclusives like Cuphead, both Forza series, the Halo series, Gears of War, & Sea of Thieves.

The Windows 10 Game Bar, summoned with Windows Key-G, lets you record or stream your gaming activities to Microsoft’s Mixer community. Even Ubuntu is getting stronger support for Steam games than Macs, with Steam Proton offering support for more than 2,600 Windows games.

Winner: Windows 10


This one is another no-brainer. Windows PCs have fallen prey to lớn far more malware than Macs in the recent past, including ransomware, spyware, botnets, & good old-fashioned viruses. But Microsoft is constantly beefing up its security, pushing Windows Defender updates, & even introducing anti-ransomware measures.Macs have a much cleaner record, but they’re by no means immune to lớn vulnerabilities. Just look at the recent Meltdown & Spectre vulnerabilities, which affect both operating systems. Our security guru, Neil Rubenking, strongly recommends using antivirut software on Macs.Both operating systems offer built-in VPN support, and all of eshopdaroana.com"s top VPN service choices are available on both platforms, so that category is a wash.

And then there’s the issue of stability. Macs win on this count, too, mostly because Apple controls the hardware ecosystem (third-buổi tiệc ngọt drivers are a major cause of instability on Windows PCs). We’ve even seen blue screens on Microsoft’s own Surface computers. Those looking for the ultimate in stability, though, should kiểm tra out Linux.

Winner: macOS


Both operating systems include a good giảm giá khuyến mãi of tư vấn for users with disabilities, but Microsoft has consistently made more of a priority of this. Both have screen magnification, text narration, Braille tư vấn, sticky and slow key entry, và voice input, but with Windows, a blind person can set up the system by voice. Microsoft has even added the ability to control the computer with your eyes, as shown in the photo above.Microsoft has American Sign Language tư vấn by videophone & a không tính tiền BeMyEyes phầm mềm that "connects blind and low vision people with volunteers for visual assistance through a live sầu video Hotline." At a Microsoft Build conference, one of the company"s developers, who is blind, demonstrated an AR phầm mềm running on the HoloLens that described people"s emotions to lớn hyên ổn in real time based on their expressions, using the company"s Seeing AI giải pháp công nghệ. The company has even published a Seeing AI phầm mềm for Apple"s iOS.The May 2019 Update of Windows 10 goes even further, adding accessibility improvements like a new dashboard và more languages for Narrator, and drawing using only the keyboard in Paint.

Winner: Windows 10


We’ve tried to lớn be fair and objective, and as you can see from the sections above sầu, in many cases the two operating systems are at parity. And you"ll have sầu your own priority weights based on your OS needs. If gaming is everything to you, for example, then Windows is a no-brainer. If you"re a creative sầu type, then you’re likely better off with a Mac. So, without further fanfare, here"s the final score tally:

Apple macOS3
Microsoft Windows 10 9

I dread the disgruntled comments, emails, và tweets headed my way because of this comparison, but hear me out. People on both sides of the OS war probably just aren’t aware of what the other side has lớn offer, và some of them may be curious about it.
