    20 Best Windows Operating Systems Alternatives

    1. Mac OS X

    Apple’s Mac OS X is preinstalled on Macs, but Macs are now just another type of PC with the same standard hardware inside. The only thing stopping you from installing Mac OS X on a typical PC is Apple’s license agreement and the way they limit their software.Mac OS X can run just fine on typical PCs if you can get around these restrictions.

    There’s a thriving community of people building PCs that run Mac OS X — known as Hackintosh — out there.

    2. Remix OS

    Remix OS is the operating system you should be installing if you want the best Android experience on the desktop. Unlike Chrome OS, this is Android revamped to suit your desktop needs like a mouse & keyboard controls. There’s better Windows-like multitasking, a start menu, system tray, notification center, keyboard shortcuts and support for Google Play Store. We’ve already tried Remix OS in the past and once you’ve used it, we are sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its beautiful interface and sleek performance. Installing it shouldn’t be a problem, as it’s available for any Windows PC or Mac.

    3. Debian

    Debian is a free distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system. It is distributed with access to repositories containing thousands of software packages ready for installation and use. Debian is known for strict adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies as well as using collaborative software development and testing processes. Debian can be used as a desktop as well as server operating system.

    4. Cub Linux

    If you want the best of Chrome OS and Linux, Cub Linux is what you should be installing on your computer. The platform offers Chrome OS features like web apps, Google integration and speedy performance combined with Ubuntu Linux capabilities like mainstream apps and hardware compatibility. Moreover, it looks very similar to Chrome OS, so you should feel right at home. Technically, it’s not Chrome OS but the developers have made sure to use various Chromium OS open-source elements on top of Ubuntu open-source project to make things familiar for Chrome OS users. Cub Linux is available for all x86 systems, which means it should run fine on PCs, Macs and Chromebooks, so you can even replace Chrome OS.

    5. ReactOS

    ReactOS is a free, open-source reimplementation of the Windows NT architecture. In other words, it’s an attempt to reimplement Windows as an open-source operating system that’s compatible with all Windows applications and drivers. ReactOS shares some code with the Wine project, which allows you to run Windows applications on Linux or Mac OS X. It’s not based on Linux — it wants to be an open-source operating system built just like Windows NT. (Modern consumer versions of Windows have been built on Windows NT since Windows XP.)

    This operating system is considered alpha. Its current goal is to become compatible with Windows Server 2003, so it has a long way to go.

    6. Android

    Android also uses the Linux kernel, but practically everything else on Android is very different from typical Linux distributions. Originally designed for smartphones, you can now get Android laptops and even desktops. It’s no surprise that a variety of projects exist to run Android on traditional PCs — Intel even develops their own port of Android to PC hardware. It’s not an ideal operating system for your PC — it still doesn’t allow you to use multiple apps at the same time — but you could install it if you really wanted to.

    7. Fedora

    The Fedora Project is an openly-developed project designed by Small Red Hat iconRed Hat, open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open source software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora about 2-3 times a year, with a public release schedule. The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in building Fedora and will invite and encourage more outside participation than in past releases. By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system more in line with the ideals of free software and more appealing to the open source community.
