You might be aware of others out there, such as versions of Linux, but probably don't know much about them.

Android x86. Is a OS and reactor is a OS. It's like windows 98. Mx linux is a OS too.

I ran across this the other day. MAC OS also has an open source distro. Keep up the good work - love your channel.

Don't forget about openSUSE. A linux distro still family with fedora. It's lightweight for old computer, and just like ubuntu, it's easy to use for beginner.

What other OSes are there besides those you mentioned? Well, as I assume you meant "for the PC or similar computer" you essentially covered most of them and you did mention that DOS or MS-DOS is history as to why you skipped it and similarly can skip the old MACos that was used on macs before they came with iOS. However, if you go beyond those machines there are tons of other OSes out there in history - If you work on IBM 360 style machine you will encounter VM/CMS which is actually two OSes, one runs on the hardware and create virtual machines and then CMS runs as an OS on that virtual machine. On pdp-10's you had Tops-10 and Tops-20 and then on Tandem machines you had Tandem OS and so on - typically, in the old days each machine had its own OS. The idea that an OS can run on multiple hardware basically started with unix and spread from there. However, one reason why each machine had its own OS in the old days was also that they all had their own proprietary specifications, some machines was 36 bits or 60 bits computers and some were 8 bit or 16 bit computers. However, as machines appeared to standardize on 32 bit word length in the 80s and 90s and you got standard protocols to access disks and so on (SCSI and SATA) it was easier to create an OS that could run on multiple platforms. That trend has continued even though they also widened the word length to 64 bits which most modern machines now handles and actually start looking at 128 bit and beyond - such as the PC with the AVX-512 which means you have registers that are 612 bits in length to process vectorized data. Also, coming from Norway I will have to mention the old Norsk Data machine ND-100 and ND-500 running the SINTRAN operating system, just to throw that out there as well. Other OSes for desktop is of course old AmigaOS and so on. SO yeah, there are lots of OSes out there - especially in the past but you are right in that Unix essentially dominates these days - even to the extent that windows itself has features that are approaching unix such as the unix subsystem which can run under windows since windows NT. Similarly, you had the OS/2 from IBM which were originally meant to be a competitor to MS-DOS but lost but it is where you got those PS/2 cables for keyboard and mouse pre-USB days and windows NT also had a OS/2 subsystem back in the day, not sure if it is still there.

Great video. I'm currently learning how to program and I want to turn my old windows Vista laptop into a Linux laptop to practice and program on. This video has given me a lot to think about in regards to which distro to choose. I'll probably try Linux mint first. Thanks again.

Mac is too locked down, Windows spies on you as does Android and Linux is just way too complicated for most users. By the way, as a Windows user who has tried Linux, Ubuntu is really not a good introduction to Linux. I found it impossible to understand and I could not get any sort of graphics acceleration working (it failed to run a 14 year old game that has Linux support). It was also terrible for trying to configure surround sound which from a Windows user stand point is a matter of about 6 clicks of the mouse as compaired to 2 days of trying to find the relevent command line options for my new settings to be wiped out by an update the next day. After that I went back to Windows. It may spy on me but at least I can understand how it works.

"no one uses linux" - wrong, people who arent brainlets use linux. there are also more than enough music players for linux, made by great programmers for absulotely free. its not a minority that hates furries, your fandom is the most obnoxious and cancerous one out there. it appeals to the least brightest people and you are proof, cant even install a program lmao.

Wasn’t MS/PC DOS supposed to be a simplistic “Unix-like” OS? Thanks for another great production! BTW, thanks also for the rundown on the major differences between Linux distros.
Bullfrog's Workshop (2 months ago)
Yeah. Bill Gates was a master marketroid. DOS was rather oversimplified. I grew up using Apple and MS DOS in the 80s and 90s, then for the last 20 years I've come to prefer Unix-like systems. They really aren't much more complicated, yet light-years more powerful. I even think they're actually easier to use. Pretty much the only similarity is being command line driven, with configuration/scripting files, as you noted.
Mark Bunds (2 months ago)
+Bullfrog's Workshop Sorry, I wasn't quite to the point of my thread when my wife called me for dinner... I was told in the early 1980's that the new operating systems were supposed to be "Unix-like", I suppose mainly in the way the user interface (command line) was presented, and that the DOS batch-file system was analogous to Unix/Xenix "shell scripting", but was very simplified. Having no Unix experience at the time, I accepted this until I learned a bit more later on. There was a lot of mis-information floating around in the 80's, and even more after DOS was replaced by Windows, so when I finally got some (very little) experience using an actual Unix OS, I noticed that it didn't "resemble" DOS at all, but I was still left wondering why so many people told me that they were designed to be "similar" since this wasn't lining up with the truth. That is why it is great to have a channel like yours to go to to get the straight scoop and leave the mis-information behind. So, thanks again!.
Bullfrog's Workshop (2 months ago)
+Mark Bunds I seem to remember mentioning that DOS was a **poorly** implemented clone of CP/M. Neither DOS, nor CP/M are UNIX like to speak of.
Mark Bunds (2 months ago)
+Bullfrog's Workshop Um, I didn't find DOS to be CP/M-like at all. CP/M on my Kaypro and other Z80 machines would boot from a 5 1/4" DSDD (401KB for Kaypro CP/M, if I remember correctly, the IBM PC would only format 5 1/4" DSDD's to 360KB) floppy in maybe 8 seconds after closing the door. The Kaypro 10 took almost as long, having to load drivers for its (LOL) huge 5 MB "Winchester" !

No mention of Arch. LinuxMint is the same as Ubuntu with different User Environments(Cinnamon, MATE, and Xfce). It is not match harder or easier than Ubuntu. Ubuntu is not as more inspired by Mac OS, as Mac OS is inspired by Ubuntu.
Bullfrog's Workshop (2 months ago)
Arch is just yet another Linux distro in the grand scheme of things. He mentioned that there are many Linux distros that weren't mentioned specifically. If you were to list every Linux distro with a brief description, the video of just Linux distros would be several hours long. That said, Arch is my go-to branch of Linux when I need a Linux. This video is about alternatives to Mac and Windows. It isn't intended to be the end all be all list of Linux distros. That would be extremely boring.

What no BeOS? No Haiku? No Zeta? No QNX? No AmigaOS? No MorpOS? No AROS? No Plan9? No GeOS? No Wings? No TOS? No GEM? No SyllabeOS ? No NeXT? Heck, you even completely omitted the most used OS on the planet (Android). None of these are BSD or Linux distros (with the arguable exception of Android, which is based on Linux kernel), all quite mature. "What other operating systems are there besides Windows and Mac?" really isnt an apt title. "Here's the 2 most common *nix kernels used and distros that use them" is much more fitting. Also, Mac OS isn't Unix, it's basically BSD with NeXT user land. Perhaps do some research 1st?
Bullfrog's Workshop (2 months ago)
While, I too missed seeing Haiku mentioned, I'll pick a nit. MacOS is a Unix because it is based on BSD, which is technically a true UNIX. The main difference in this regard is that Apple ponied up the cash to call itself a true UNIX, while the budget of BSD, on which Mac/Darwin is based, didn't budget for. FreeBSD is a true UNIX in spirit, MacOS is a true UNIX in both spirit and cash money.
