Linux vs Windows

There is alot of advice which needs to be taken into account when considering the move from the Microsoft desktop to that of Linux. This Linux advice includes that there needs to be enough motivation for, expectations and results thought through, and preparations made, for this transition to take place successfully and essentially for the right reasons. The wrong reason for making this move to the use of the Linux desktop is because it is free.

There are a number of benefits to be enjoyed from this transition to Linux. These can be listed as follows:

  • no license hassles
  • no vendor lock-in
  • Linux is a stable system on which to work
  • no force-fed costly upgrades
  • no single source dependency
  • Linux has an interesting selection of file systems
  • by using Linux a user will be showing their support to the growth of OpenSource
  • enormous amounts of FLOSS/OpenSource software is available to those using Linux
  • no viruses, trojans, spyware, backdoors, or autodialers
  • inherent and trustworthy security implemented into Linux
  • Linux makes multitasking for the multiuser truly easy
  • the user is put into the position of control

Even though Linux is a highly advanced operating system, it provides a more or less working system to users expecting to be able to perform normal and standard activities with their computer. There are as such a number of things which can be expected after Linux installation is completed and use of this operating system is first initiated. Some of these things which can be commonly expected from the use of the Linux operating system include:

  • It is just as easy to install Linux as it is Windows.
  • No knowledge is required of computer hardware to install Linux.
  • Linux accurately autodetects, initiates, and configures all hardware.
  • There are many Linux experts, such as Intoweb, out there to give Linux users help and support in their use of the Linux operating system.
  • Linux works in the same way as Windows because it has a graphical user interface.
  • Linux is OpenSource and configurable for customisation to become anything a user wants it to be.
  • Linux is a stable and secure operating system.

How Can Intoweb Help?

Intoweb can give you the following advice when it comes to the preparations which need to be made and thought about prior to simply going ahead with installation, and hereafter, initially installing Linux. Intoweb advices that the following preparations should be carried out accordingly:

  • Check what hardware you have.
  • Ask people in the know-how whether your hardware is well supported.
  • If you are going to buy hardware, make sure it is supported.
  • Do a search concerning hardware compatibility with Linux.
  • Identify problems, if any, with your hardware.
  • Do research on Linux in order to find out information on the Linux operating system and what can be expected after installation and during use.
  • On your current platform, use programs that you will be able to use under Linux too in order to get experience before installation with the same programs that Linux offers.
  • Determine how you can import you addresses, email, and bookmarks.
