Operating System Characteristics

By zbrain75 ·
The Computer Technology documentation Project is interested in finding out what users, system and network administrators consider to be the most important characteristics of operating systems. Below are shown the important operating system characterics we believe are worth rating:
1. Security
2. Stability
3. Ease of Use (includes user interface such as GUI interface)
4. Networking capability
5. System monitoring and User auditing tools.
6. Learning - How easy is it to learn how to use and administer the system and associated programs?
7. Documentation Quality
8. Available Services/programs and their performance such as Mail, SQL server, and web server.
9. Cost
10. Cross platform capability
11. Foreign OS Communication

One way to rate importance is for each user to rate the importance from 1 to 10. Some items may be rated with the same value and may be equally important. Please suggest any additional criteria. Respond here or at:
