  • Mac OS vs Linux | Which is better for you?

    In this video, I compare Mac OSX vs Linux and go over its history and which is truly the best for you. Before we do a straight comparison we need to understand where they come from and the differences between them.

    6:18 Why Choose Mac?

    History

    Unix
    To understand either OSX or Linux you need to know about UNIX. It is basically the father to many of what we see today, but there is a reason no one uses Unix anymore. In the late 80s and early 90s AT&T held the UNIX Licenses for part of the kernel and ip stack and proceed to litigate anyone that used UNIX without paying. AT&T effectively killed UNIX.

    Linux
    First off, Linux is NOT UNIX and is NOT a fork of UNIX. It originally looked and acted like UNIX but this is a common misconception. It originated from a collaboration done by Linux Torvalds with the GNU (GNU is NOT UNIX) Project (Richard Stallman from MIT) and Minix (Andrew Tanenbaum). Both these projects were coded entirely from scratch with completely free licensing. From here it has been developed from the early 90s to today.

    Mac OSX
    The first Macs from the 80s and 90s used a FAR different version than today. This kernel is nothing like OSX today. Macintosh 1 to 9 was not UNIX based and was very proprietary. I suggest watching Jobs, Pirates of Silicon Valley, or various other films to get a broad understanding of them. In 2001 Mac OS 10 was born, and it was based on UNIX or to be more specific NeXTStep which acquired in the late 90s. NeXTStep was based on BSD which used some UNIX code but in 1991 it managed to strip out all the AT&T code and also convert to Free licensing.
