Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

Whatever we think, feel or believe is better does not matter. Only the hard numbers do and they say: Android is the best OS out there in all terms that matter.

Popularity does not correlate with objective quality. Look e.g. at BetaMax ( ) Android just happen to fill a spot better than the alternatives at the moment -- price, variety of looks and features, and so on.
