All operating systems are constantly updated to deliver new enhanced and advanced features that users can benefit from. If you plan to install a new operating system on your PC, here are three best operating systems that you can try in 2019 and the new features that they offer to you.
Because Microsoft has decided not to release any new operating systems after Windows 10, the only way you can enjoy new things from Microsoft’s last version of Windows is by getting new updates. The October 2018 update has brought many new great features that significantly enhance your operating system’s functionality, such as better integration with Android devices through Your Phone app and Microsoft Launcher and more versatile Snip & Sketch function.
In 2019, whether you are a Windows 10 veteran or someone who has just installed the operating system, you can expect the arrival of a new major update that will change the operating system almost entirely. The new April update is codenamed 19H1, putting a break to the previous codenaming traditions of Redstone and Threshold. The fresh new codename is also expected to offer many fresh features, including softer and fancier light theme, more aesthetically pleasing default wallpaper, and acrylic blur effect on the login screen. In addition to the major aesthetic updates, there are also some enhancements in the functionality department, such as the separation between Search and Cortana, the ability to uninstall built-in apps, and more manageable update functions.
There are many new great features to enjoy if you plan to use Windows 10 in 2019.
Ubuntu is one of the biggest Linux distros with a strong fanbase, reliable developer’s support, and a huge assortment of apps. Ubuntu has been repeatedly updated and whenever new LTS versions are released, the updates have always been mostly conservative. What makes Ubuntu a special operating system in 2019?
In this year, you will have a chance to try the newest Ubuntu LTS version, Ubuntu 18.04 or the Bionic Beaver. Unlike prior LTS versions, which featured mostly refinements for features that were already present in their predecessors, Ubuntu 18.04 is considered one of the biggest Ubuntu updates because it offers many new things that give Ubuntu users a truly new experience.
To start with, Bionic Beaver is the first LTS version to abandon the Unity shell and the first to use GNOME. While this seems to be bad news for Ubuntu veterans due to the versatility of the Unity shell, many actually consider it a positive step. By abandoning Unity, Canonical can use its resources more on developing the core elements of the operating system. Besides, Canonical has made sure that the transition to the new shell will be so smooth that Ubuntu users will not find difficulty switching to the new interface. And because Gnome is a communally driven project, it will constantly improve even without Canonical’s intervention.
Apart from the switch, there are a number of great features that the Bionic Beaver introduces. Canonical has promised that the new Ubuntu version will boot faster than before and they do keep their promise. You will no longer need to stare the Ubuntu’s boot logo too long, thanks to the implementation of the new systemd. You can also keep your operating slim and small without all the unnecessary bloatware by installing Ubuntu in minimal mode. App installation is also much simpler now because you can now skip the “sudo apt update” command and go directly to the app installation command when using a PPA. There are many new great features that new latest Ubuntu version offers, so try it now.
Apple’s macOS Mojave
If you are using a Mac with GPU that supports Metal, you may want to upgrade your operating system and switch to Mojave. Mojave has been around for about 5 months now and it has received three major updates that improve its security and stability as well as add some extra features to improve its functionality. Why should you upgrade to Mojave? There are several reasons for that.
To begin with, the new macOS is incredibly beautiful. It features some aesthetic updates that make it look smooth and enchanting but still familiar. The dark mode that is introduced in this version soothes the eyes of its users with a less glaring interface and more elegant appearance.
You can also work much faster with Mojave. This operating system is incredibly faster and there are a number of new features, including Stacks, revamped Finder, and Continuity Camera, greatly improve the efficiency of this operating system and make everything that you do with it faster and easier to accomplish.
