What is the difference between OS and RTOS?
A real-time operating system is intended for systems that need to tightly control responsiveness and performance. With an RTOS you can prioritize operations such that the most critical areas of the application get control of the processor exactly when they need it. All other lower priority operations are paused. An RTOS also gives you all of the other advantages of an OS: * a consistent coding platform * a rich set of APIs to save coding time and errors * processor housekeeping...

Which is faster Windows 7 or Mac OS X?
The speed of a computer depends on many factors such as processor speed, amount of memory available, hard disc access speed etc. so it is impossible to measure the speed of an operating system without reference to the hardware. If Windows 7 is running on a Mac, and speed is a consideration, Windows 7 will run faster when booted natively rather than running it virtually on top of Mac OS X although the latter is perfectly adequate for most purposes. ...

The OS allows for permissions based accounts, and has better access controls to limit the spread of malicious software (yes, there are viruses and proof of concepts which target Apple software), and protects the system folder from write actions unless a user has administrative privileges. The ease of use is often cited as a primary reason for educational institutions and art...

Will Skyrim run on a MacBook Pro?
Yes, Skyrim will run on a MacBook Pro with Windows installed via BootCamp or a virtualization software such as Parallels or VMWare Fusion. Virtualization software, however, means simultaneously running Windows and its programs (such as Skyrim) at the same time as the Mac OS, which may result in poor performance during gameplay. You can also run it through a Cider wrapper or WineSkin, however, that isn't as easy. Using BootCamp (included with your Intel-based Mac) for Windows is the easiest method. ...

Will a new Mac Mini with only 32 megs of video memory be sufficient for general web surfing and webcam viewing?
It sounds like a fine machine. Keep in mind though that if the video memory is shared (which at that amount it most likely is) that it won't be very good for any type of gaming. If web surfing and cam viewing are strictly what you are limiting the machine to, then this should be adequate. Keep in mind that for fluid webcam viewing your bandwidth (internet connection speed) is far more a determining factor than is your video card. ...
