There will always be the battle between good and evil, between Windows y Linux. Who is good and who is evil? Is Windows easier than Linux? Or is it not so much?
We are going to comment on the basic differences that exist between Linux and Windows and from there we can go laying the foundations to draw our own conclusions.
Installing the operating system ...
- To install Linux you have to make relative efforts, although each time it is an easier task, but you can completely customize the installation.
- At the time of installing Windows you can hardly configure anything (four basic things). Of course, the installation of Windows it is very easy and comfortable.
Hardware Compatibility ...
- Windows is generally more compatible with all kinds of hardware which Linux. However, each time they are getting closer to full compatibility, which would be desirable.
- Thanks to Linux enjoys high popularity, offers high compatibility despite not being behind any commercial house. It also offers frequent updates.
- Windows is part of Microsoft, and due to its great economic power it tries to offer a high number of drivers, since the companies of hardware create their own drivers.
Let's talk about Software ...
- Linux has less software in some sectors, and has less acceptance in the business world, although thanks to support from companies such as Sun Microsystems (acquired in 2009 by Oracle) or IBM important advances were made in recent times.
- Windows owns a lot of software, since it is the operating system more used in companies (mainly for its ease of use) and this makes developers focus more on it.
- Linux It has always been characterized by the robustness of its system, since for example we can spend months (even years) without the need to shut down or restart the computer. On the other hand, if an application crashes, the computer does not totally crash.
- En Windows always (sooner or later) it is necessary to restart the system when any configuration of the system is modified or updated. In addition, it can be blocked when executing some seemingly simple operation, forcing us to restart the computer.
So much Windows and Linux have their advantages and disadvantages, you will find reasons to use (or not use) both one and the other. What is true is that technically speaking, Linux comes out winning.
