Comparison of Operating SYstem

I don't know that it's possible to do a "full-scale comparison" in less than 2000 characters and without knowing the intended use.

Each OS has strengths and weaknesses but usually the choice comes down to what is supported by the application you want to run.

Well I'll give it a shot:
The comparison is only important in the world of network computing. For a home system the Win98/ME/2000 wins hands down due to support and familiarity of use. I personally would use Win2K in establishing a network. This isagain due to driver and application support.
Linux is gaining a following, however there are many different types with differing features and driver support is not universal as yet.
Unix is basically a server or mainframe based OS and workstation application support can be sparse.
Netware is a fine OS however layoff's in technicians bring real doubt to this companies ability to survive. That obviously shadows their OS with uncertainty.
MacOS obviously is only feasible within the Mac enviroment and these are usually only a graphic support workstation and not many companies use them for normal systems.

My personal opinion would be a group of AMD Athlon workstations with Win2K and HP servers. I hope this helps you.
