Default Different User accounts on PC Win7, 8, vs Mac computers...

I'm very familiar with using different User ID's on a Windows computer to keep track of my stealth accounts, and have stayed with Win7 because I'm so familiar with it. I use a Broadband USB stick that gets a new IP each time it connects, so it's been working great since my first Stealth setup.

Are different user ID's on Windows 8 just as secure (with the same limitations, such as you have to be sure you use a different IP, etc) as Windows 7 or on a Mac computer? Are there any disadvantages of a Windows 8 machine in this regard, vs a Windows 7?

And what about user accounts on a Mac? Is it the exact same principle, or is one slightly less secure or less isolated than the Windows 7 user accounts..?

Any thoughts on this would be interesting, I didn't find anything when searching that actually compared the three, or that said they were the same.

ebayerOG is correct, they all relatively work the same way

may also want to look into vmware as it makes managing multiple accounts much easier

I agree with this but reinstalling windows OS over and over could be time consuming plus it also takes a toll on your pc memory usage

I don't reinstall an OS over and over, I have the image of a fresh XP saved I just duplicate it whenever I want to start a new stealth

I have used both platforms and they both work fine.. I find windows a little easier to navigate and make new accounts with and is slightly faster.. my Mac tends to be a little slower at times when booting up
