Mac vs Windows
- Mac OS X 10.9 is the top recent one update from Apple for its PC devices. We people are quite fortunate that we can now use Mac OS in our Windows PC too. Yes, you heard it right. OF course, to own an Apple device is everyone’s dream. However due to a big price tag, no one can easily afford to own it.
- ”Parallels Desktop is the easiest, fastest, and most tightly integrated app for running Windows apps or the Windows desktop in Apple OS X.”Edward Mendelson, PCMag.com “The latest version of Parallels, the popular Windows virtualization tool for Mac OS X, almost feels like its trolling Apple.”Engadget.
Macintosh and Windows are two different computer systems, and they run on different operating systems. A Mac computer runs on a Unix-based operating system that is designed and sold by Apple. The operating system being used currently for Macs is Mac OS X, and it is designed around graphic interface. The Windows-based computers operate on different operating systems which are made by Microsoft, and some of these are: Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. These Windows-based operating systems can be used on a variety of PCs which are widely used.
Mac computers have a built-in security system and are less prone to attacks by viruses most of which come from the Internet. Mac OS X was designed with security as the top priority, and this was successfully achieved. Computers running on Windows do not come with their own security, and one has to purchase antivirus software for protection against viruses which have to be updated everyday to ensure that they can handle the latest virus threats. PCs that run on Windows are widely used, and this is another reason why many viruses are designed to attack them. These viruses cannot attack Macs since the two operate using different file types. Windows is also more vulnerable to being hacked by other people who may want to access some information from your computer.
Since Macs are designed around a graphical user interface, they are mostly used for graphics and multimedia services like photo editing, and that explains why Photoshop was first used in Macs. They can also be used for educational purposes since they are easier to use. Windows is widely used for most office functions as it is best suited for office use.
Macs are more expensive than Windows for computers with the same specifications. The initial costs of Macs are expensive because they come with many built-in features like security systems unlike Windows where you have to purchase the antivirus software separately. Macs also have more applications than Windows, and this also adds to the cost. However, Macs normally give the owners value for their money in the long term since they are usually designed to stay for long and can run the latest software available in the market. Windows PCs that are a bit older cannot run the latest software, and one has to constantly upgrade the hardware or buy a new PC.
Macos X is a Mac OS X port for WIndows 7, made by idas = ZEUS osX. (Pavlos Pitselas). Macos X for windows 7 is MADE IN GREECE (= Hellas). Macos (1)word meaning: 'mecos'= length in ancient Athenian also Ionian language and in Byzantine and in nowdays Greek, and 'macos' in doric and aeolian ancient greek dialects and in nowdays tsaconian.

Troubleshooting in Macs is very easy because they have very good architecture and simplicity. If a given application running in Macs encounters a problem, it is normally detected and repaired automatically. Windows architecture is very complex, and troubleshooting may even take days. If a certain problem causes a Mac not to boot, the problem is easily solved by reinstalling the system only. For Windows, you have to reinstall the system and all other applications.

How to install Windows 10 on Mac
To install Windows, use Boot Camp Assistant, which is included with your Mac.
1. Check your Secure Boot setting
Learn how to check your Secure Boot setting. The default Secure Boot setting is Full Security. If you changed it to No Security, change it back to Full Security before installing Windows. After installing Windows, you can use any Secure Boot setting without affecting your ability to start up from Windows.
2. Use Boot Camp Assistant to create a Windows partition
Open Boot Camp Assistant, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder. Follow the onscreen instructions.
- If you're asked to insert a USB drive, plug your USB flash drive into your Mac. Boot Camp Assistant will use it to create a bootable USB drive for Windows installation.
- When Boot Camp Assistant asks you to set the size of the Windows partition, remember the minimum storage-space requirements in the previous section. Set a partition size that meets your needs, because you can't change its size later.
3. Format the Windows (BOOTCAMP) partition
When Boot Camp Assistant finishes, your Mac restarts to the Windows installer. If the installer asks where to install Windows, select the BOOTCAMP partition and click Format. In most cases, the installer selects and formats the BOOTCAMP partition automatically.
4. Install Windows
Unplug any external devices that aren't necessary during installation. Then click Next and follow the onscreen instructions to begin installing Windows.
5. Use the Boot Camp installer in Windows
After Windows installation completes, your Mac starts up in Windows and opens a ”Welcome to the Boot Camp installer” window. Follow the onscreen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers). You will be asked to restart when done.
