I bought my first ever non-windows pc, MacBook Pro and I bought it because I wanted to get rid of Windows. Every PC I had had viruses, troyans, malware and even once I got the ransomware where I should've paid money to ''police'' and the last thing was some malware which stole my passwords (Zemana kills it, great tool) I need portable laptop for my faculty. I have iPad and I choosed Apple to be my computer which is light, thin and powerbest.

Here is what happened. I set up my Macbook and I saw that MacOS is Linux. Does Apple charge Linux? I know for Linux as I spend a lot of time using technology and I even know it is turbo safe so they can't scam me like they can scam person who only used Wins.

I mean it's ok, Catalina (beta) is super but I don't like a thing Apple charges me their MacOS Linux as the basic Linux is free and I could buy some Windows pc and dualboot it (I need Office so I can't get rid of Wins 100% unfortunately) and I have Linux.

I meant Apple has it's own software like iPad OS I am using and it is unique and Catalina is like Ubuntu, better for some things but like 80% the same so should I buy some cheaper windows pc and put the Linux on it? I paid a lot of money and I feel like a fool. People use Linux because it's free and I pay Apple Linux.

P.S: I just wanted to avoid Windows because of updates, errors, ransomware and I need a portable PC for faculty. iPad is such a great device and I tought I will have iOS based PC not Linux based as then I would buy thin laptop and have free Ubuntu or Mint on it.

macOS is a Unix based system the difference is they (Apple) controls everything that is allowed or used on the system, and they build the computers to work specially with the os.
