Oh, here we go, yet another “is Linux better than windows”. The internet is full of this discussion, but sick of reading biased opinions I thought it was time to make an unbiased one!
Having used various Linux OS’s, including Gentoo and compiling my own kernel, and all windows platforms since the 3.11 release back in the mid 90’s, I have a good knowledge of the progress and developments made.
I haven’t had Windows installed for about 3 months now, and Ubuntu is actually my choice of OS, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t go back to Windows.
Wndows - XP and Vista, as they’re Microsoft’s latest releases.
Linux – Ubuntu 8.10, as I’m currently using it and it’s the latest Ubuntu and arguably one of the most “user friendly” Linux distros.
So, which is better?
The quick and simple answer is “neither” as both have a lot of pros and cons.
