Many a times Windows users talk about what Windows can do but Linux can’t. To be fair, they need to know what Linux can do but Windows can’t.
After Reading this article 101 things that the Mozilla browser can do that IE cannot. I decided to write something on 101 reasons why Linux is better than Windows.
Though this isn’t 101 yet, long way to go but contributions are most welcome to make that happen.
Note: This is still work in progress, so please bare with me
Core OS Features:
- Linux doesn’t have the virus problems. Even Microsoft’s CEO Steve Balmer couldn’t clean Windows Viruses. Still not convinced? Read more on Why Linux isn’t affected by Viruses.
- Linux Doesn’t need defragging. The Linux file systems work very efficiently such that it arranges data in a way that it doesn’t require defragging. to know more, read earlier post.
- Linux doesn’t crash without any apparent reasons.In Linux the core operating system (kernel) is separate from the GUl (X-Window) from the applications (OpenOffice.org, etc). So even if the application crashes, the core operating system is not affected. In Windows (Microsoft prefers to call this tight integration) if the Browser crashes, it can take down the entire operating system.
- Linux doesn’t require frequent re-installation. In Windows if the OS crashes, there is no easy way to recover this. Many IT support staff don’t know what to do and all they can do is re-install Windows. Which means that users applications and preferences are lost, and again needs to be installed. I haven’t seen anyone using Linux, requiring to re-install unless there is a hard drive failure. Most things in Linux can be fixed without requiring re-installation. The benefit of this is all the users preferences can be preserved even if the OS needs to be re-installed. This can be handled by creating a separate partition for the home directory.
- Linux doesn’t require frequent rebooting. Linux runs extremely stable, even if an application crashes, there is no need to reboot the whole system, just restart that application or service.
- Linux can read over a 100 different types of file systems.. Windows is limited to its own click on the link to continue!
I had no idea how famous he is at this moment but it seems that he also have to take part of the open source hype…and open its operating system
