Microsoft Windows 10

Windows 10 delivers a refined, vastly improved vision for the future of computing with an operating system that's equally at home on tablets and traditional PCs -- and it's a free upgrade for most users.

Google Chrome OS

Chrome OS struggles with the delineation between apps and Web sites, even though they are fast growing together. Great for students and casual home use, the day is coming when it'll be competitive, but it's not yet a replacement for a more mature OS.

Microsoft Windows 8.1

If you're a dedicated Windows 8 hater, the update to Windows 8.1 isn't going to change your mind. For everyone else, this collection of tweaks, fixes, and new features is useful, but everything here should have shipped in the original version last year.

Windows Vista Home Basic

Windows Vista Home Basic is essentially warmed-over Windows XP, Windows XP SP3. If you're currently happy with Windows XP SP2, we see no compelling reason to upgrade. On the other hand, if you need a new computer right now, Windows Vista is stable enough for everyday use.

Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar

Take a good, hard look at Mac OS X 10.2 if you're adding a Mac to a Windows network--Jaguar's new tools can't be beat. But home users, beware the $129 upgrade price if you're not looking for networking options.

Microsoft Small Business Server 2003

For small businesses that need a business in a box and want to stick with Microsoft technology, SBS 2003 is the only game in town.

Apple macOS High Sierra

Unless you're really into Photos or have installed the iOS 11 beta, there's no FOMO by passing on the public beta of Apple's latest OS.

Apple iOS 11

Siri will try to read your mind, and you can pay your friends back in a text. Plus, AR is gonna be huge.

Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

Windows 2000 isn't for the gamer or the casual surfer, but if you have a yen for speed, stability, and some serious server tools, this business-class OS will do you right.

Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger

Due in mid-2005, Apple's new Mac OS X 10.4 promises more than 200 features.

Android Oreo

Oreo doubles down on the nuts and bolts -- and speed.

Android Wear 2.0

With lots of new features, the LG Watch Sport and Style are the first to use the new software -- and it's promising.

Android Pie

Android 9.0 is already on some Android phones. Here's what you can expect when it comes to yours.

Nokia X Software Platform

Nokia sure tried hard to give us something new, but its mashup of Android, Windows Phone, and Asha gives its Nokia X phone limited powers and a nagging identity crisis.

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

From new Continuity features to smaller, useful tweaks across core apps, Mac OS X Yosemite is a must download for Mac users.

Google Android TV

Google is taking yet another shot at a living room software platform with Android TV, which runs on the upcoming Android L platform.

Google Android L

Google gives us a preview of the future of its mobile operating system.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update

With new functionality for the Start button and separate experiences for desktop and tablet users, the Windows 8.1 update finally gives people what they want.
