Why you should use LINUX over WINDOWS?

November 10, 2009 7 comments

Let me explain you from few points.

 

COST

most Linux distros can be downloaded free on line or can be get to your doorstep delivered free.

We all know the fact that Windows Operating Systems should be purchased, which is high cost and not affordable specially for the people in developing countries. Even though still we can use pirated versions, thats illegal.

And why should we do illegal things since we can do same works legally?

Microsoft Windows has released several products.

the whole new one is Windows 7.

 

let me list some of free Linux destros you can download online

Ubuntu

Linux Mint

Kubuntu

Debian

Mandriva Linux

Linux Puppy –

etc…

 

besides you can get Ubuntu to your door step FREE…

 

 

EFFICIENCY

I am using Linux for more than 2 years now. Before that I used Windows. Why should I lie you? Yes I was a Windows User and And still using since our Uni using Windows softwares for assignments.(i am using a dual boot system) But I feel that Linux is great and smooth than Windows, since I can do everything I used to do in Windows in Linux so fast using FREE softwares. I admit for a new user it takes some time to get used to FOSS(Free And Open Source Software). But this is the era of communication and Technology. The world has become a one ICT village through globalization. There are thousands of sources you can learn to use free software.

 

 

SPEED

As I experienced my Linux kernel boot much faster than the Windows does.

Really am I kidding??

check this-

if u still cant believe me try install Linux to your machine.

Even it didn’t take much time to me to install Linux like the Windows did.

Linux Kernel

 

 

STABILITY

yes I really gotta say this, than the early Ubuntu distros the new releases works really good.

MS Windows release many bug patches to their OS continuously and try to get it more stable, instead it slows down the system because of heavy load.

USER FRIENDLYNESS

yes even small child can start using Linux.

may be you can argue that it’s hard and complex to use Linux OS and FOSS.

Actually we cant learn swimming without jumping to the pool.

So I did jump.

And now I can swim in the world of FOSS like a free fish…..

 

 

VIRUS FREE

Actually we can’t guarantee that Linux is Completely Virus free.

But if compared to Windows HELL YES….

since I don’t use virus guards to my Linux OS as I do in Windows, I still run Linux without any crash or hacking..

It’s obvious that the viruses run in windows don’t run in Linux platform.

Check this out..this may help you to clarify….

APPEARANCE

You might say that windows is the most beautiful, eye candy OS in the world,

well I don’t agree. Since you can modify your Linux OS as you wish without no cost.

And I prefer my Linux OS appearance more than windows(i use Linux Mint- one of most enchanting Linux distros ).

since you cant modify your Windows, you cant customize your appearance as you wish.

But in Linux you can modify the kernel and redistribute even in any name you wish under GNU GPL.

 

and yes there are so many reasons why YOU should choose LINUX over Windows…

simple.. It Rocks…..

 

 

use GNU Linux

use Firefox

use FOSS

Living with Linux.

Hi Guys, how yo doin? I think after long time, ha???

just because I’d my 1st semester Final Exam of B.Sc(Hons) in IT @ SLIIT. So I’ve been bit busy with that stuff.

Any how there’s a big news 4 all of you. I am into Linux. Open Source Operating System, which you get free of charge.cooooooooooool!!!!!! Isn’t it?

Initially I started with Fedora Core 8, a Debian based Linux Operating System, which have KDE 3.5 interface. This week I installed all new Linux Mint 5, which have Gnome Desktop. It’s really coooool guys. It’s with all new Fire Fox 3 Web Browser, and lots of stuff. You should try that guys, u’ll indeedly forget about Microsoft Windows.

You don’t wanna register yo copy like Windows. And guess what Linux is not afraid of Viruses and spam. No need of Virus Guards, Scanners. No Virus or spam can affect Open Source Software. What else you need more? Try your self, and let me know how ya feel, don’t worry if u got any problem of installing Linux or surfing Linux just mail me or leave mesg here.

We got Linux Gurus @ SLIIT. And if you need any assistance just log on to sinhalenfoss.org where you can learn all new FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) stuff. GOOD LUCK.

Mahesh.
