osCommerce is completely free. While there is a free version of Magento, for larger stores you may need to move to the paid version. Many people rave about Magento being easier to set up and use than osCommerce, but then they report that Magento is much hungrier for server resources than osCommerce (meaning, you have to move to a VPS or even dedicated server much earlier than you would with osCommerce). Read up carefully on user experiences and decide what's important to you.

From my point of view magento is the best for creating the shopping cart. It is multi store capable and the template is very nice for the shopping cart. The code is depending on the latest PHP5 object oriented coding and also provides Zend framework.

Note that the referenced article is almost 2 years old, and contains some very outdated material. osCommerce has since released 2.3.1, which is much updated and improved over 2.2.

OsCommerce is better than magneto. As Oscommerce is free and  the megnato is paid after a certain limit. The other main factor is,  magento slow down your site's loading speed that some times make visitors feel annoying.

osCommerce shopping cart is scalable to suit the wide range of stores - no matter of their size, type or location. The administrative panel has two benefits - security and convenience. Protected by username, back end is user-friendly even if you donít have special technical knowledge. The high level of shopping cartís security is guaranteed with SSL encryption. The purchase process is simplified by easy site navigation, secure customer accounts, purchase history and such extras as review and newsletters.
At  another hand- Magento- one of the most popular shopping cart platforms ( maybe not the one of - but the most popular) The users appreciate the ability of the platform to handle multiple sites. Each store can be placed on its unique site and unique domain. The administration doesnít cause any trouble for a merchant - it is as convenient as operating a single store. The number of products and customers is not limited. Magento is the best solution to manage big quantities of products. Among the useful features are possibility of searching and sorting of product by several criteria, the option of adding products to wish list , downloadable or digital products with samples.  You may also find  the list of features for both platforms at cart2cart website http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/useful-articles/45-oscommerce/4892-oscommerce-vs-magento-your-choice

osC 2.3.3 is the current release. Make sure that's the version you use. Do NOT try using 3.0x... it is a development experimental version for experts only, and should not be used for production stores. Eventually it will become a usable release, but that's probably several years away.

I like magento over the oscommerce. However, it is more "heavily load" due to comprehensive functions and perhaps require you to have better machine spec to run smoothly.

Magneto is the better option for people who are running a big scale business while Os Commerce is more suitable for small business.
Some of the advantages of Magneto e-commerce software are described below:
1.Magneto is a good software and its developers go further to enhance their creation with new and important features.
2.Magneto is an open source software free to install and you are able to use the community version for free,but if you want some supporting features,they may cost you a certain amount of money.This is a good option for people who are running a big scale business and can afford it.
3.Magneto is a feature-rich but complex application which needs a lot of storage space and a good hosting plan to support its operation.
4.Magneto is a feature-rich application giving users the ability to customize their websites according to their preference,so it is a little complex to manage the system.

I have worked with multiple ecommerce platforms like osCommerce, Magento, Prestashop, Opencart, and many more. But my favorite shopping cart is Magento because its SEO friendly and have lots of features to optimize the ecommerce store. You can also find lots of extensions for Magento in order to enhance the usability of Magento.
Check some of Magento extensions & themes here: https://www.fmeextensions.com

Note that osCommerce version 2.3.4 has been out for quite a while now, and a community supported Bootstrap responsive version ("osc 2.3.4BS", available on GitHub) has been out almost as long. In most cases you will want to go with the responsive version. The next official release, 2.4, is promised to be responsive, but there is no release date yet.

Dear,

The rule is very simple. If you have enough resources and want to build a big store. Then Magento is a good option. In the other case, Oscommerce is good for less resources and small stores. Another good option is PrestaShop which I am personally using on my store and it has given a lot to me. Here is the live example of PrestaShop: fmemodules.com
