Windows 10 vs. OS X El Capitan
Apple presented its latest computer operating system, OS X 10.11 “El Capitan,” and as projected it is an iterative advancement, based around developing the core features of OS X and providing a better experience to users. Just like iOS 9, El Capitan takes the fundamentals of OS X – Safari, desktop management, Spotlight – and makes them better, fine-tuning the interface or modifying it slightly.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 has a whole new set of features, many of them based on Windows 8.1. Both new operating systems will be available for free to those who have already got OS X 10.10 or Windows 8 and the over-all theme of development runs through both.
In this article, we are going to assess how El Capitan’s new features stand up against Windows 10.
Pin tabs in Safari
Apple has spent a reasonable amount of time talking about enhancements to Safari. While many users have moved to Chrome, the Mac client is conventionally a battery killer and the restructure that OS X 10.10 Yosemite introduced won back support.
One of the key features that Apple introduced with El Capitan is the ability to “pin” tabs, making for speedy and stress-free access. The bookmark system of the current personification of Safari (version 8) is a little dreary and so it’s noble to see Apple is thinking this through.
Split screen desktop
One of the main updates to OS X comes in the form of windows running, an area that Microsoft has conventionally been strong in. You will note a similarity between Windows’ “snap” window mode and Apple’s new Split View. Dragging a window to one side of the screen can split space down the middle in El Capitan, showing two applications side by side. With every apprise there is a to and fro between Windows fans and Apple fans about who has employed the others’ features – Microsoft introduced a new multi-desktop mode recently, significant of Apple’s Mission Control – and it’s pleasing to see that each company compliments the other enough to borrow ideas, especially as at the end the user is benefitted.
Apple also unveils a cleaner Mission Control which makes it stress-free to manage windows and apps, especially with several applications open at once.
Better Notes app
Note taking is one of Microsoft’s strengths, especially with the pronouncement of the Surface and its pen accessory. OneNote has taken a far better job in the makeup of Windows, becoming almost a “mini Word” in terms of its capabilities. Meanwhile, Evernote has attracted millions of users across numerous platforms by offering well designed, easy to use apps and services for free, with more available if you pay a subscription.
Apple has clearly seen this and has chosen to beef up its note taking offerings, proposing a face-lift of Notes in El Capitan. Notes can now contain images, videos, links, check-lists and so on, and can sync across all Apple devices flawlessly via iCloud.
Unlike OneNote and Evernote, Notes is still very much designed for consumer audience who does not want to write a book on the service. The new checklists feature will be extremely beneficial, if not unfavorable for smaller apps, such as Clear.
