Differences Between Linux And Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| This article will discuss the differences 
| between the Linux and Windows operating 
| softwareâs; we discuss some of the proâs and 
| conâs of each system.
| Let us first start out with a general 
| overview of the Linux operating system. 
| Linux at its most basic form is a computer 
| kernel. The Kernel is the underlying 
| computer code, used to communicate with 
| hardware, and other system software, it also 
| runs all of the basic functions of the 
| computer.


The Linux Desktop of the Future

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the things I love about Linux is the 
| ambitious and creative people behind it. 
| Anyone with a text editor and a compiler is 
| free to make up whatever strange software 
| experiment they want, without needing to get 
| approval from a huge corporation. With all 
| of these amazing ideas flying around, it 
| made me think, âwhat would the Linux desktop 
| look like in ten or twenty years?â Although 
| my predictions may be insane, I believe that 
| the Linux desktop will have a mind of its 
| own and in most cases, make itâs own choices 
| based on the person using it.

| Joe User doesnât want to mess with settings, 
| search for programs to install, run cleanup 
| tasks, or basically do anything. He wants to 
| use his computer as needed and thatâs all. 
| If his computer monitored his style of use 
| and customized itself for him and his PC, he 
| would get an experience that would be like 
| any other. He would forget he is even using 
| a computer in the first place.
| Although I may be far off, this is how I 
| view the Linux desktop of the future, and 
| itâs also where I see Linux taking a running 
| start and blasting to the top.



Suddenly a Vista-phonic Moment

,----[ Quote ]
| I dumped Vista and put Ubuntu 9.04 and later
| 9.1 on the exact same DELL with NO hardware
| changes and it has never even hiccuped once.
| It has run without ANY failures and only has
| required one reboot (outside of new kernel
| installs)in the year since I installed Ubuntu
| 9.04.


GNU/Linux Security: Linux House vs Microsoft House

,----[ Quote ]
| How is GNU/Linux different? A GNU/Linux desktop
| system is designed from the ground up along the
| Unix model of multiple tasks with multiple
| users among multiple computers on a network. I
| will call this a many-many-many design. As such
| the basic design also includes consideration
| for securing the operating system and data on
| same when many users may have access to the
| same system simultaneously. Therefore, when a
| GNU/Linux computer is taken out of the box for
| the first time it already has a higher security
| capability. This is because of the many-many-
| many design that included consideration for
| security from the beginning.
