What is Macc OS? | Advantages, Disadvantages & its History

What is Macc OS?

Macc OS is a macintosh Operating system which is developed by the American computer company “Apple Inc.” and it was introduced in 1984. It is a GUI-based Operating system that comes up with some amazing preloaded applications like Safari, Apple app store, Apple TV, iTunes, calendar, gallery, etc., and many other applications.

The main thing about this OS is that it provides us a lot of security than the Windows operating system, this is because it provides us some restrictions like it doesn’t allow us to use of third-party applications or Software in it. You can only use those applications or software which Macc OS allows you to use. Because Apple knows if you use third-party applications or software then you’ll face some viruses, data leaks, and lag issues in it.

Also, It does not support third-party hardware because Macc OS is specially designed to run only on Apple Computers.

Advantages of Macc OS

1) Stable OS

It is a very stable Operating System that has no lag, no bugs, and no error issues in it which provides us with a smooth experience without any issues.

2) Faster than other OS

If we talk about the speed of Mac OS is insane, it is too faster than other OS. Boot time, Application opening time, and animations all are fast.

3) Longer Life

As I said Macc OS is designed to run only in an Apple computer, The hardware quality of apple’s computer is more premium than the other computer manufacturers so that means apple’s computer has a longer life than the other brand’s computers.

4) Neat and Clean Desktop Environment

The Desktop environment of the Mac OS is too beautiful and has a clean and minimal design.

5) Fewer Malware attacks than other OS attacks

If we talk about Windows OS, the attacks of the virus are larger in Windows OS. But in Macc, it has fewer attacks than Windows.

Disadvantages Of Macc OS

1) Too Expensive

This is the main disadvantage of Macc OS, their prices are too much greater than other OS. If I talked about the lowest price of macc is around1100 $ to 1500 $. It is just the lowest price of macc, If I talk about the normal price is around 2500 $ to 5000 $, and their supported hardware is also expensive.

2) It has Some restrictions and limited apps

In Macc, it has some restrictions like you can’t be able to install any third-party application and software in it. You can use only preloaded apps and software which comes with preloaded in Macc OS and use those applications which is available on the apple apps store.

3) Not a Ideal Choice for gamers

Macc OS is not an ideal choice for gamers as most of the games are available to run in Windows operating system only, game developers want to make their games for Windows operating system as the market share of Windows OS is much larger than Macc OS. That’s why it’s not for gamers.
