Hi,

That would depend on what type of operating system you mean.

Windows: Not many disadvantages at all except that over time the operating system can degrade if not looked after properly. For example bad drivers, corrupt boot files etc.
There are tools like defragmenter and other registry tools that can keep the operating system in good working order.

Linux: This can be a very difficult operating system to work with as unlike Windows you have to know "Source Code" this is the input languge that is used with OS's like Linux, Unix etc.

Mac OSX/leopard: Very similar to Linux but the difference is that Mac is mainly just a tool. Used mainly for people on the go and who have no time to work properly with the operating system. Mac has specialized applications which are used all around the world. Many government institutions like the Police use Macs. Mac's are also the most expensive of all the operating systems and computers.



Regards.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of windows 8.1 and andriod?


Horrible Operating systems. Unfortunately, if you buy a new computer you are saddled with them. Stay with XP or Win 7. If not, good luck - you will need it! Very steep learning curve.

What is the disadvantage and advantage of free operating system?


Well what type of free operating system are you talking about. Are you saying a friend gave you a copy of windows and you are now using it. or you downloaded some other operating system for free. Well first if its not Windows you are probably going to have problems, like stuff not working. But if you buy windows you should have no problem with customer service if you need it.

Can I change my operating system from vista to xp? If I do that what will be its advantage and disadvantage?


Yes you can as long as you have the installation disc with a valid product key. The disadvantage is an older operating system. The advantage is XP is more stable when installed and updated to Service Pack 3.

I dont know the disadvantages of visual basic.


visual basic, is only a basic programming language, most programs will run on Java script, microsoft is visual basic though, but it uses a lot more complex scripts then, if you like the programing language, go for it, but i did not like it.
Also
VB is undoubtedly the simplest and easiest platform to build major Windows applications. The problem is that like other Microsoft products they change faster than I change my socks.You will certainly need more than just VB. Get into server and client side scripting and the use of VB Net.
