Brothers in Tech: Computers – Deep Dive #1: Operating Systems

So you are thinking of buying a new computer? Now that you have learned about the various form-factor options (episode 6.0), now it is time to think about what operating system (OS) is right for you. In the first deep-dive into the world of computers, the Brothers discuss the pros and cons of the major OS options:

  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Chrome
  • Linux

In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):

  • Brian’s Pick = Fantastical: An outstanding calendar app (Apple devices only…Mac, iPhone, iPad) that not only improves the native calendar experience (e.g., natural language input, layout), but brings a useful menu bar calendar to your system.

  • Alan’s PickCleanMyMac: An app (Mac only, obviously) that performs some great maintenance scripts to keep your computer running smooth, as well as provides access to helpful information/tasks in the menu bar. $34.95 (1 license), or part of the SetApp subscription.
