Ubuntu>Windows, vai otrādāk?

Posted by sm00n uz jūnijs 8, 2008

Ubuntu>Windows
1. No Viruses – Thats true! as Linux does not recognize Win32 Executables so the possibility of having a virus on-board is absolutely 0%
2. Open Source – Unlike Windows, Linux distributions are open source and the source code can be edited and modified to the most to suit your needs.
3. Better Learning – While Windows just teaches you how to install and run a program, Linux helps you do that using a Terminal. So if you fall in a situation where you don’t have a GUI, you can operate things well.
4. Free Software – Every application and software on Linux is free and open source. You don’t need to worry about licenses anymore and you can always find a better and free Linux alternative to a Windows application.
5. Easy to Use – This point may seem ironic but is true to a lot of extent. Linux Ubuntu is one of the most user-friendly and easy to use Linux distribution which even beats Windows XP and Vista in usability and ease of use.
6. Ubuntu Community Help – Ubuntu has a very active support and help community where you can get answer to your questions and problems in minutes.
7. Cool Desktop Effects – For those who think Aero in Windows Vista is damn cool! wait till you experience Compiz on Ubuntu which provides better 3D desktop effects with less resource usage.
8. Easy Upgrade – You can upgrade Linux Ubuntu through the package manager and all applications can be installed/updated through it. There is no need to Google for freewares as the package manager helps you find all of them.
9. Highly Customizable – If you like customizing your operating system without a billion registry and software hacks then Ubuntu is your ultimate choice.
10. Experience Live – Linux Ubuntu CDs come with a pre-installed OS environment which allows you to run the OS without even installing it. Carry your Ubuntu Live CD with you and use it on any PC anywhere around the world.

Windows>Linux
1. Installing programs is easy with windows because there is a standard. Try installing VLC and you’ll see what I mean.
2. Anytime you try to install or change something on your own computer you have to type a password. And god forbid you run the program in root, then you get every warning that exists.
3. Installing anything good in Linux requires an entire weekend ending up in learning how to reinvent the wheel.
4. To truly use any Linux distribution your going to have to either take classes in how Linux works or spend time reading a lot of books and forums.
