Discuss similarities and the differences you’ve discovered between Mac OS X and Linux OS.

Do some outside research on the two operating systems.

Discussion Responses:

  • Based on your research, discuss the similarities among the Mac OS X and Linux OS hardware requirements. Discuss the hardware compatibilities among the two. Why does working with Apple hardware eliminate hardware compatibility issues?
  • Discuss similar elements between the MAC OS X and Linux. Based on your research, why do think the two operating systems share these similarities.
  • As you know, Linux is open-sourced. Consider whether Microsoft & Apple MAC OSs are more secure from malicious action because of their closed-source approach. Discuss the double-edged sword of open software (positive and negative). Are the benefits worth the risks? Explain.
