A long time ago, I read an article on ZDNet on why Windows is better than Linux. This post is to set the record straight, and prove that Linux is actually the better choice.
First of all, before I get started, let me say that Linux is just a kernel. It doesn’t come with a GUI, or really any software for that matter. When you think of running Linux on your computer or server, you’re probably thinking of a Linux distribution, or distro. A Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu, is a complete operating system that runs on the Linux kernel. Distros often include a GUI for desktop users, along with a lot of other software you expect to be installed on a modern OS, such as a browser.
In the rest of this post, whenever I mention Linux, I’m probably talking about Ubuntu.
Before I Go Any Further
This is in no way an attack on the author of the post. Everyone has their own opinion, and I respect that. This post is merely stating my side of the argument.
On With the Argument!
Go ahead. Comment. Rant. Prove me right.
Challenge accepted 🙂 .
Reason #1: As soon as you mention one distro, all the fanboys go insane claiming you’ve made the wrong choice.
