Windows vs Linux

The fight between Windows and Linux has been nearly as overhyped as a Don King venture in a monster Vegas arena, screaming fans included. In one corner, hard-core Microsoft fans avow Windows Seven as the comeback kid of the new century, rising above all previous problems with Windows Vista. In the other, Linux boosters claim the open-source operating system is poised to power the enterprise from stem to stern, trash-talking Microsoft's bloated code and licensing gotchas along the way.

The truth, unfortunately, is far less dramatic. The real battles take place in smaller venues, where Windows wins sometimes and Linux pulls off its share of victories with little fanfare.

Those looking for blood are bound to be disappointed, as the two would-be combatants increasingly make an effort to play nice. For instance, although it has been possible to share files to Windows clients from Linux servers via Samba for years, only recently has integration with Active Directory been solid. Domain integration has always worked, but it was occasionally tenuous and difficult to administer. No more.

On the Windows side, the release of Microsoft Services for Unix 3.5 has shown that Redmond is providing some semblance of integration with modern Unix systems. SFU's network information service and network file system services are reasonably complete, and its Unix tool set even includes Perl and the Korn shell. In fact, these tools will be officially distributed with Windows Seven.

Rather than force all network services onto a single platform, most enterprises are implementing Linux servers in key areas. Although this trend is not exactly new, the areas served are changing. Any smart IT manager with carte blanche to design a new network should include both Windows and Linux as major players.

Historically, if a few Linux servers existed in a Windows network, they were orphans handling a single task that had little relation to the services provided by Windows. Today, Samba 3 provides true integration with Active Directory, making it easy to configure directory-authenticated Linux Web servers, FTP servers, file servers and especially database and network management services.

Conversely, stability improvements on the Microsoft side and Active Directory's reliance on the Domain Name System make the case for Windows servers to handle DNS and DHCP tasks. Although it's certainly possible to run an Active Directory environment with Linux providing the DNS and DHCP services, it's not as easy to manage.

I will give you more points about Linux and Windows:

- Windows and Linux come in many flavors: Linux as Linspire, Red Hat, SuSE, Ubuntu. Windows as Windows 95, 98, xp, vista.
- Graphical User Interface:
In windows GUI is better and it is very user friendly.
In Linux the environment is not that user friendly.

- Text mode interface:
Windows uses the command line interface sometimes.
Linux uses the shell to do programming.

- Cost:
Linux can be obtained cheaply or freely.
Windows is expensive.

- Installation:
Installing Linux is a complex system. And also it is possible to run without installing it in the hard drive.
Installing windows is easy.

- Viruses:
Linux is not affected by viruses.
Windows is affected by viruses.

There are a number of different scheduling algorithms are available for Linux, tuned for different workloads. Traditionally, scheduling algorithms have been modified to optimize server performance, but as Linux became more popular on the desktop that has begun to change. The planner you get on Linux can be different, depending on the distribution you are using .

Linux is now able to offer a viable alternative to proprietary platforms and can offer a complete PC experience. It's fast and good at multitasking and networking.

Its gives us A modern, very stable, multi-user, multitasking environment on your inexpensive PC hardware, at no monetary cost for the software, Standard platform, Unsurpassed computing power, portability, and flexibility.

I would use Linux if you do not use Windows, it would be cheaper, more reliable and flexible to your needs. However, an example of case you use Windows to / IIS / MS SQL / etc would be if you were developing Sharepoint or something similar that is based on Microsoft products.

Linux and Windows differ in philosophy, cost, versatility and stability, with each seeking to improve their perception of the weakest areas. Windows installation disc contains the drivers usually enough to make a working operating system. To this end, "generic" driver can provide the basic functions. The Linux kernel, in most distributions majority of drivers are available for modules.

Windows and Linux both are OS but they are different form each other. Windows is more user friendly then Linux and it was easy to understand, so it was widely used by every one. Linux provide best user and virus security . Every user want authorization to access another user data.

The First Thing is that the Security of the Linux is high then the Windows.Linux has the Open Source Software,But Windows has no Open Source Software.The Cost is Low for the Linux as it is OpenSource and available all the Software very quickly.While the Windows is comparatively costly then Linux.
