OS X Mountain Lion

When you see what you get for your money, Mountain Lion surely qualifies as the best value upgrade ever. The built-in social networking tools and the greater organisation afforded by Notification Center are worth the money on their own. The fact you also get native dictation tools, iCloud Document Library and more glosses an already compelling proposition.

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is more than what Vista should have been, it's where Microsoft needed to go. How much damage Vista did and whether Windows 7 is enough for people to finally abandon Windows XP are questions that nobody has the answers to right now.

Red Hat Linux 7.1 Std

With new configuration tools and an excellent Web-based system management service, Red Hat 7.1 deserves serious consideration as a Linux solution for your organization.

Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

As it's a free upgrade that gives you more apps, improved features across the board, and better performance, there is really no reason not to get Mavericks on your Mac.

Apple Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard

Intel Mac users will like Snow Leopard's smartly designed interface enhancements, and its Exchange support is a must-have (especially with Outlook for Mac on the way). With a ton of technological improvements, Snow Leopard is worth the $29 upgrade fee.

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.

Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Upgrade

Microsoft makes an aggressive, forward-thinking, and bold statement for the future of PCs with Windows 8, and vast security and speed improvements more than justify the $40 upgrade price.

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

The grace of Leopard's interface enhancements makes productivity more pleasurable with a Mac, as more than 300 functional and fun features top off this update.

Apple Mac OS X 10.4

Though its new user features have mixed appeal, Tiger's technological changes and speed improvements make this an enticing upgrade, especially for those who passed on Panther.

Apple Mac OS 10.4.6 Tiger

Though its new user features have mixed appeal, Tiger's technological changes and speed improvements make this an enticing upgrade, especially for those who passed on Panther.

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 Windows XP

Despite its many annoyances, XP is a worthwhile upgrade. Unless you need corporate administration tools, XP Home Edition should suffice for most--even for small businesses. Enterprise customers, look to Professional Edition.

Linux Mandrake 8.0 Standard

Linux-Mandrake 8.0 is easy to learn and use, with a toolset that should please advanced users and novices, in particular.

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.

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.

Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

Media Center Edition 2005 is the best desktop DVR app out there, but it's not yet ready to play hub for your digital home.

Red Hat Linux 9.0 Professional

Red Hat 9.0 is a boon for those who already use it, but it's too expensive to warrant a switch from Windows. Try SuSE (or the free Red Hat) for a better mix of price and features.
