I first used windows 95 operating system in the year 1995 when I was 7 years old. Computers seemed like something from the future at that time. At that age, like any child, all I was interested in were games. I remember when people used to see me start and shut down computers, they used to be very impressed. I can say I have seen windows growing with me. I have used windows 95, 98, ME, XP, Vista, 7 and 10. I have always felt that windows operating system has been very much messy. It’s very intimidating for a new user. Also, after using the operating system on a certain machine, it starts to become clunky, slower and annoying. But never the less we have always used the windows OS on computer machines because of two reasons. First reason was because it was the free. It wasn’t free because Microsoft gave it for free, but we used to crack it. I have never paid for any of the windows I have used. Rather it seemed funny to me paying for something that you can have for free. There was always a way to crack the windows OS. The second reason was that the programs that we used to run on windows could also be cracked. The programs that we can run on windows have grown over the years exponentially and someone somewhere out there has already cracked it as well. So, it won’t be incorrect to say that I used windows like played in my backyard.
I shifted from android to iOS a year ago and to my amazement I
have found it to be very easy, snappy and amazing experience unlike android. Although
you are restricted by the iOS but if you are not a pro and just want to use the
cellphone like an amateur then it’s the best OS out there. Shifting to iOS made
me open to the idea of shift to mac OS. So, I bought the MacBook laptop.
It has been a week, I have been using Mac OS and I have almost forgot windows to be honest. I don’t know why windows never thought to make their operating system work like mac OS does. There are many things in both operating system that are overlapping and I won’t go into the discussion that who started which feature first but mac OS does same thing in a very intuitive way. I thought that this transition would be painful, but it has been exact opposite of that. Everything is easy, well integrated, swift and overall gives satisfaction while using the machine. The interface, machine’s performance in terms of optimization with the OS and in turn the work flow is a pleasurable experience. I remember the first computer we had was called 486 after the intel processor chipset in it and it took time to boot. My father at that time used to say that a day will come when you’ll press the button and the computers will start instantly within blink of an eye. Although computers are still not at that point but Macbooks are pretty much close to this experience. You have to pay premium for this experience, but it is worth every penny. I know understand the phrase once you go mac, you never go back.
