In-depth Interface

• Mac OS X and Windows XP have similar
 interfaces and tools. We’ll be comparing:
 –Desktops
 –Access to Applications
 –File Organization
 –Personalizing Settings
Mac OS X Desktop
                    Mac OS
                   X Desktop
                   with menus
                   at top of
                   screen and
                   Dock at
                   bottom of
                   screen
Windows XP Desktop
Windows XP desktop with taskbar and Start Menu at bottom of screen ↓
Accessing Applications
                                          The Windows Start Menu offers access to
                                          nearly every application installed, and to
                                          multiple versions of each application.
                                          However, unless the menu is kept
                                          organized, it has the tendency to become
                                          cluttered and any one application is hard to
                                          find among the many.




The Mac OS X Dock is much more streamlined, and contains fewer items.
However, it can hold fewer items before becoming cluttered. It also doubles as
a task bar, with active applications indicated with small black triangles and
animation.
Finding Your Files

                                                The Mac OS X Finder allows the
                                               user to start browsing from several
                                               common locations.




The Windows Explorer shows the exact
location of any folder that you are browsing
using the compact Folder view in the
leftmost panel, referred to as the “Explorer
Bar.” Other Explorer Bar views include
Search, Favorites, and History.
Better Browsing Buttons


^ The Windows XP Toolbar is not as easily
customizable and only includes basic browsing
options. Advanced features can be accessed
from the menu bar.

   Another new feature of Mac OS X is the
   Spotlight. This feature is a more advanced
   version of the Google Desktop search and is
   integrated into the OS. It allows you to search
   your computer and the Internet from your desktop
   with instant results.         



                                                      The Mac OS X
                                                      Toolbar can be
                                                      customized with any
                                                      of dozens of
                                                      buttons.
Customizing Your Computer

                                              The Windows XP Control Panel offers
                                             categories the user can browse to, to
                                             change settings.




The OS X System Preferences folder
offers an organized view of the icons,
with less browsing required to access
specific settings.



 In either operating system, the settings windows’ appearance
 can be changed to suit the user’s preferences.
Users and Usability
 There are several differences to get used to
 in the area of usability and convenience:
  Keyboard Shortcuts
  Mice
  Positioning of window buttons
Kwick Keys
 Most   Apple shortcuts are similar to Windows
  ones
 Use Command () key instead of Control

 -C, -X, -V for Copy, Cut, Paste

 “Option” Key replaces Alt.

 Control Key is used less.
Building a Better Mouse
• Macs used to come with a one-button mouse
• Instead of right-clicking, Control-click brought
  up a context menu
• Now ships with new four-button “Mighty
  Mouse”
• USB Windows Mice also work on Macs
Wacky Window Whatsits
^The classic Windows title bar has received few structural changes, though a few
cosmetic changes (red “Close” button, gradients, etc.) have been made. Thus, the
basic structure is: A menu icon at the far left, the title, and, at the far right, the
“Minimize,” “Maximize” and “Close” buttons, from left to right.




 ^ To someone used to the Windows title bar, the Mac title bar may seem a bit
 strange, and vice versa. The Title, centered, goes between the control buttons at
 the left of the bar, (“Close,” “Minimize”, and “Shrink to Fit” from left to right), and
 the Finder’s Toolbar button at the far right.
Compatibility Concepts
   Hardware
    •Proprietarity
    •Upgradability
    •File Systems
   Software
    •Games
    •Applications
    •Media
Proprietary Parts
 Microsoft does not make much
  hardware: mainly joysticks, mice,
  keyboards, etc.
 Therefore Windows XP has to work no

  matter what hardware is thrown at it,
  with just device driver changes.
 Mac OS X is designed to just work on

  Apple Computer systems.
Up! Up! And Upgrade!
 PCs can consist of any combination of
  hardware: therefore upgrades are easy
  to carry out.
 The main difficulty is if the hardware

  changes enough to make XP think it’s a
  different computer. This is unlikely
  though.
 Apple Computers are very hard to

  upgrade: generally only the HDD and
  RAM can be upgraded easily.
File Formats
 Windows   XP supports the FAT file system
  and the NTFS file system.
 FAT is more compatible, especially with other

  versions of Windows.
 NTFS can only be written to from Windows

 Mac OS X uses HFS+ by default, but also

  supports HFS, UFS, AFP, ISO 9660, FAT, UDF,
  NFS, SMBFS and NTFS (read only).
All Work and No Play…
 Windows is the main non-console platform
  used for developing games.
 Many console games are developed for use
  on PCs running Windows as well.
 However, there is a growing trend to make
  games compatible with Mac OS X as well.
 Due to non-upgradeability, Macs cannot
  keep up with gaming tech though (without
  total replacement)
Application Comparison
•   Applications:
•   Mac                   Windows Equivalent
•   iTunes                Windows Media Player (Audio and video playback)
•   iMovie                Windows Movie maker
•   iPhoto                Includes a photo import from digital camera or scanner
                          Wizard
                          Downloadable or can be bought from 3rd party
                          company
•   Mail                  Outlook Express
•   DVD Player            Windows Media Player (with decompressor)
•   Xcode                 MS Visual Studio Suite (purchased separately)
•   Dictionary            Online or via 3rd party application
•   iCal                  Outlook Express (built in calendar viewer), or 3rd party
                          application
•   iChat                 Windows Messenger, MSN Messenger, NetMeeting,
                          Phone Dialer
•   Safari                Internet Explorer or alternative browser
•   Preview (PDF)         Adobe Acrobat Reader
Windows XP and Mac OS X Costs
      • Windows XP Home costs about $129 for
        the upgrade version or $199 for the full
        version, and Windows XP Professional
        costs $199 to $250 for the upgrade, and
        $299 for the full version. The Tablet
        Edition and Media Center Edition only
        come in an OEM package with a
        compatible configuration such as a
        Media Center PC or a tablet PC.
      • Mac OS X costs $129 for the single user
        license or $199 for the 5-user license.
Apple FrontRow
• All new Macs now
  include FrontRow, a
  piece of software
  similar to Windows
  Media Center Edition
• It does not include a
  TV tuner and record
  feature since the
  graphic cards don’t
  support it.
• It includes a wireless
  remote similar MCE’s
  remote but tailored to
  the Mac.
Windows Media Center Edition
• Windows XP Media
  Center Edition includes
  every thing from
  FrontRow but also
  includes TV viewing
  and recording plus
  ability to listen to the
  radio.
• It too includes a remote
  that controls most of its
  functions
• This is the best media
  package for Windows
  XP and is being used
  as the main
  entertainment center in
  more and more homes.
Decisions, decisions…
               Why Mac?
 For professions such as graphic art, music
  and video editing, or Web designing or
  anyone interested in any media arts, whether
  as a job or a hobby, a Mac is probably the
  best bet.
 Mac users tend to be very loyal and articulate

  about the benefits of Mac OS X, proclaiming,
  “Once you go Mac, you never go back.”
Decisions, decisions…
           Why Windows?
 For businesses, people who like to upgrade
  their computer’s capabilities, or average
  computer users who simply don’t need that
  much power and are looking to save money,
  then a PC with Windows would probably be
  the better option.
 One group of people, though, who will

  definitely need PCs are the hardcore gamers,
  since many games aren’t available for Macs.
Conclusion
   Overall, Mac OS X and Windows XP are
    both great operating systems and any
    one is neither good nor bad. It’s just
    that one of them may be better at
    something the other is not, that is,
    certain applications and functions.
    Both are highly recommended by the
    major companies and vendors and, of
    course, by their users.

Windows Xp And Mac Os X

  • 1.
  • 2.
  • 3. Applegeeks Lite © 2006 Mohammad Haque & Ananth Panagariya. All rights reserved. Used with permission.
  • 4. What OS Do You Need?  Applegeeks Lite © 2006 Mohammad Haque & Ananth Panagariya. All rights reserved. Used with permission.
  • 5. Our Outline  User interface  User friendliness, intuitivism  Hardware and software compatibility  Included and add on applications  Media Features  Editions and Costs
  • 6. In-depth Interface • Mac OS X and Windows XP have similar interfaces and tools. We’ll be comparing: –Desktops –Access to Applications –File Organization –Personalizing Settings
  • 7. Mac OS X Desktop  Mac OS X Desktop with menus at top of screen and Dock at bottom of screen
  • 8. Windows XP Desktop Windows XP desktop with taskbar and Start Menu at bottom of screen ↓
  • 9. Accessing Applications The Windows Start Menu offers access to nearly every application installed, and to multiple versions of each application. However, unless the menu is kept organized, it has the tendency to become cluttered and any one application is hard to find among the many. The Mac OS X Dock is much more streamlined, and contains fewer items. However, it can hold fewer items before becoming cluttered. It also doubles as a task bar, with active applications indicated with small black triangles and animation.
  • 10. Finding Your Files  The Mac OS X Finder allows the user to start browsing from several common locations. The Windows Explorer shows the exact location of any folder that you are browsing using the compact Folder view in the leftmost panel, referred to as the “Explorer Bar.” Other Explorer Bar views include Search, Favorites, and History.
  • 11. Better Browsing Buttons ^ The Windows XP Toolbar is not as easily customizable and only includes basic browsing options. Advanced features can be accessed from the menu bar. Another new feature of Mac OS X is the Spotlight. This feature is a more advanced version of the Google Desktop search and is integrated into the OS. It allows you to search your computer and the Internet from your desktop with instant results.  The Mac OS X Toolbar can be customized with any of dozens of buttons.
  • 12. Customizing Your Computer  The Windows XP Control Panel offers categories the user can browse to, to change settings. The OS X System Preferences folder offers an organized view of the icons, with less browsing required to access specific settings. In either operating system, the settings windows’ appearance can be changed to suit the user’s preferences.
  • 13. Users and Usability  There are several differences to get used to in the area of usability and convenience:  Keyboard Shortcuts  Mice  Positioning of window buttons
  • 14. Kwick Keys  Most Apple shortcuts are similar to Windows ones  Use Command () key instead of Control  -C, -X, -V for Copy, Cut, Paste  “Option” Key replaces Alt.  Control Key is used less.
  • 15. Building a Better Mouse • Macs used to come with a one-button mouse • Instead of right-clicking, Control-click brought up a context menu • Now ships with new four-button “Mighty Mouse” • USB Windows Mice also work on Macs
  • 16. Wacky Window Whatsits ^The classic Windows title bar has received few structural changes, though a few cosmetic changes (red “Close” button, gradients, etc.) have been made. Thus, the basic structure is: A menu icon at the far left, the title, and, at the far right, the “Minimize,” “Maximize” and “Close” buttons, from left to right. ^ To someone used to the Windows title bar, the Mac title bar may seem a bit strange, and vice versa. The Title, centered, goes between the control buttons at the left of the bar, (“Close,” “Minimize”, and “Shrink to Fit” from left to right), and the Finder’s Toolbar button at the far right.
  • 17. Compatibility Concepts  Hardware •Proprietarity •Upgradability •File Systems  Software •Games •Applications •Media
  • 18. Proprietary Parts  Microsoft does not make much hardware: mainly joysticks, mice, keyboards, etc.  Therefore Windows XP has to work no matter what hardware is thrown at it, with just device driver changes.  Mac OS X is designed to just work on Apple Computer systems.
  • 19. Up! Up! And Upgrade!  PCs can consist of any combination of hardware: therefore upgrades are easy to carry out.  The main difficulty is if the hardware changes enough to make XP think it’s a different computer. This is unlikely though.  Apple Computers are very hard to upgrade: generally only the HDD and RAM can be upgraded easily.
  • 20. File Formats  Windows XP supports the FAT file system and the NTFS file system.  FAT is more compatible, especially with other versions of Windows.  NTFS can only be written to from Windows  Mac OS X uses HFS+ by default, but also supports HFS, UFS, AFP, ISO 9660, FAT, UDF, NFS, SMBFS and NTFS (read only).
  • 21. All Work and No Play…  Windows is the main non-console platform used for developing games.  Many console games are developed for use on PCs running Windows as well.  However, there is a growing trend to make games compatible with Mac OS X as well.  Due to non-upgradeability, Macs cannot keep up with gaming tech though (without total replacement)
  • 22. Application Comparison • Applications: • Mac Windows Equivalent • iTunes Windows Media Player (Audio and video playback) • iMovie Windows Movie maker • iPhoto Includes a photo import from digital camera or scanner Wizard Downloadable or can be bought from 3rd party company • Mail Outlook Express • DVD Player Windows Media Player (with decompressor) • Xcode MS Visual Studio Suite (purchased separately) • Dictionary Online or via 3rd party application • iCal Outlook Express (built in calendar viewer), or 3rd party application • iChat Windows Messenger, MSN Messenger, NetMeeting, Phone Dialer • Safari Internet Explorer or alternative browser • Preview (PDF) Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • 23. Windows XP and Mac OS X Costs • Windows XP Home costs about $129 for the upgrade version or $199 for the full version, and Windows XP Professional costs $199 to $250 for the upgrade, and $299 for the full version. The Tablet Edition and Media Center Edition only come in an OEM package with a compatible configuration such as a Media Center PC or a tablet PC. • Mac OS X costs $129 for the single user license or $199 for the 5-user license.
  • 24. Apple FrontRow • All new Macs now include FrontRow, a piece of software similar to Windows Media Center Edition • It does not include a TV tuner and record feature since the graphic cards don’t support it. • It includes a wireless remote similar MCE’s remote but tailored to the Mac.
  • 25. Windows Media Center Edition • Windows XP Media Center Edition includes every thing from FrontRow but also includes TV viewing and recording plus ability to listen to the radio. • It too includes a remote that controls most of its functions • This is the best media package for Windows XP and is being used as the main entertainment center in more and more homes.
  • 26. Decisions, decisions… Why Mac?  For professions such as graphic art, music and video editing, or Web designing or anyone interested in any media arts, whether as a job or a hobby, a Mac is probably the best bet.  Mac users tend to be very loyal and articulate about the benefits of Mac OS X, proclaiming, “Once you go Mac, you never go back.”
  • 27. Decisions, decisions… Why Windows?  For businesses, people who like to upgrade their computer’s capabilities, or average computer users who simply don’t need that much power and are looking to save money, then a PC with Windows would probably be the better option.  One group of people, though, who will definitely need PCs are the hardcore gamers, since many games aren’t available for Macs.
  • 28. Conclusion  Overall, Mac OS X and Windows XP are both great operating systems and any one is neither good nor bad. It’s just that one of them may be better at something the other is not, that is, certain applications and functions. Both are highly recommended by the major companies and vendors and, of course, by their users.
