Linux vs Windows
Battle of Linux vs Windows
Linux vs Windows Personal Experience
I have a couple of friends, both techies, who use it and encouraged me to give the test of Linux vs Windows a try. I finally did after ANOTHER frustrating experience with Windows, and one of them helped me install Linux. It is an operating system, just like Windows and Mac, but it’s what they call an open source system. Open Source means that anyone can write programs for it, but as soon as you offer it, other techies around the world are going to scrutinize it for suspicious content – hence there are no viruses with Linux. There are thousands of apps that you can install, and it runs OpenOffice. Caveat: I tried to install something a couple of weeks ago, and now I can’t get it to boot up, so I’m back to Windows for the time being. Don’t try the Linux vs Windows test unless you have a good, available techie to help you out in a bind. Sounds negative, but you have the same problem with Windows for sure, and maybe Mac as well. One feature that I really like is that when you turn it on, you’re ready to go in less than 30 seconds, and it turns off in 5 seconds, instead of the 90 that Windows takes. Linux takes a little getting used to, layout and such, but overall I like Linux. Maybe Linux For Dummies would be helpful. P.S. Linux is free which makes taking the Linux vs Windows test very appealing.
