Windows or Linux: Which One to Choose?

Published on 17 November 14

Windows and Linux, both are popular operating systems. While Windows is the product of Microsoft, Linux is developed and distributed by the free and open source community. There has been a long running debate over which is the better operating system: Linux or Windows?

Many people are of the viewpoint that Linux is better than Windows as it is freely distributed. Well, just because you are getting something for free does not make it better than others. Listed below are some of the best features of Windows, which will justify the decision of choosing Windows over Linux.

Windows provide the most amazing and simple user-interface as compared to all the other operating systems including Linux. It is very easy to use the Windows OS over Linux. Even the newer versions of this operating system are designed such that its user familiarity is maintained. You can very easily run your applications on Windows, but on Linux you will have to face version hassles, script hacks etc. To find the best Windows hosting provider in India, search the internet.

The Windows OS is compatible with the largest combination of computer hardware. The high compatibility of this operating system makes it number one choice for doing most of the computing tasks.

Along with hardware support, Windows provide immense software support too. This is why, majority of the software available in the market are devised to run chiefly on the Windows operating system. There are a lot of amazing applications which run only on Windows and not on Linux.

Whether it is Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 8 or any other version of Windows operating support, each of these versions have their own help section where its customers can seek help if they are stuck at something. A lot of documentation and help is also available online for each version of the operating system. You can even find books on each version of this operating system.

For the game lovers, Windows is definitely the right operating system because Linux does not provide support for high end games. All your popular games like FIFA, GTA etc., which can play on the Windows operating system, will not run on the Linux operating system.

It is very much easier to install Windows as compared to Linux. In just few clicks, your Windows OS is installed. Even a non-technical person can do it easily. But, when it comes to Installing Linux, it can be a very tough job because you will have to deal with different technical terms like cylinders, swap space etc. Without a hint about these technical terms, you will either be stuck or do something inappropriate.

Any day, people would prefer clicking on the icons to see their files or run applications instead of using a command prompt to do so. The Windows operating is easy, colorful, has amazing features and provides high compatibility. Apart from this, it has numerous other qualities which signifies why you should prefer Windows over Linux.
