Linux vs. Windows

<![CDATA[Linux vs. Windows
I like Linux and Windows but one of them is obviously more appealing to me. I like Linux better for a multitude of reasons that show it is either better than Windows or generally good. Windows does not have half of what Linux offers when it comes to customization, but cost $100-$200. “Windows 10 Pro would sell at $199 and Windows 10 Home would cost $119”, ( this is the going price for Windows OS right now. Linux however is completely free of charge and easy to download.
Linux if fast just like Windows I cannot tell which is faster if one is. I think we should use it for the school PC so that way the school can save money on an OS and Linux is safer than Windows when it comes to virus prevention. According to an article provided by Mr. Pool, Linux gets less viruses and has less of a chance to get viruses. It is simple to use, and makes you put in an admin password to delete or change important files, so no one should be able to mess up your computer that way. It has all the software we need for school; we should definitely switch.
I wish I was able to use this before today, I would have used it with every PC I have ever owned. I wonder how I was not able to find and use it until now. Originally I figured it would be a knock off of windows because it was free to use, but it is completely different and has everything you could want, and if not it has an easy software manager to find what you need. I would recommend this OS to anyone and everyone. Once downloaded and opened from my experience it only downloads what you want it to. Windows downloads what they think you want, “They are installing programs onto your computer before you purchase it, thinking they will improve your experience” (
It is actually compatible with almost any PC as well. You could download it on that dinosaur computer you have sitting in your basement and it will actually run like new and well like a new computer. It is supported by just about every computer and works great on them. Obviously with an older computer it can only operate so quickly but it is still does well. I have a computer at home that has no OS because it crashed during a reinstall of windows, I want to use Linux on it to restore it to a condition better than before. Another good thing is it installs so much faster than windows, and allows you to customize what you get and don’t get during the installation. I was able to use the Linux disc and complete repair the laptop, and it works like new again.
So Linux is if not faster than Windows, then just as fast. It installs more quickly than Windows, and allows you to customize what you want and don’t want. It also has less viruses along with, problems are fixed at a much more productive rate. It is absolutely free, which you will pay hundreds for Windows. Linux comes equipped with software you need for actual activities like reading a PDF instead of making you go search down a PDF reader like Adobe Reader. Overall Linux beats out Windows in just about every category. I would personally recommend this OS for everyone with a computer. Although I favor Linux, but this doesn’t mean I am saying for fact that it is better. I just personally feel this way about Linux and Windows
