IntroductionMac operating system is commonly referred to as the Mac OS. It is one of the graphical user interfaces and was discovered by Apple Inc. The core purpose of coming up with this user interface was to ensure that the users get a more friendly interface when operating a computer. This system was more advanced and more appealing operating system than the existing one like the MS-Dos. The Mac operating system can be divided into two the Mac OS classic family and the Mac OS X system. The classic version does not have any command line (Dan, 2003). These two versions are very similar in many ways. In this essay I will discuss on the advantages and the disadvantages of using the Mac OS as a user interface. In some cases I will compare it with other available operating systems. I will therefore go through each of this pros and cons in the most detailed way possible. This will also facilitate more understanding of Mac operating system.
Disadvantages of Mac operating systemOne of the disadvantages of this operating system is that you cannot upgrade it. This would be inconveniencing to those who would like to improve on the features of the computer. It may also limit the use of the computers to average home users only. It has got a limited number of software hence discouraging the users. The number of programs are also very few and the user may be only limited to them. This is unlike the windows since they have many programs and software (Scott and Mike, 2007). In most cases anything that you can get in the windows there is a substitute for it in Mac Os. The main problem is that most games can only run in the widows and not in the Mac OS. This will limit you from accessing these games since your computer will no operate them (Dan, 2003).

In it own design its far much better in terms of security because of his ability to remain compact. It is also not easily attacked by the virus hence it is possible to last for a very long time. The user interface is very friendly and therefore it can be used by anyone. Mac operating system could be perfect for home users since they do not need to keep on changing it now and then. For the more dynamic users this might not be a very good option since it can never be upgraded in anyway. It also has a limited capacity of the number of programs that can be used. There is a limited number of software that can be used in this operating system. It may be not appropriate for those users who need different types of software in their operation.
