Which OS is better?
As we all know that the persistent tag of war between those who support Linux operating system and those who support Windows operating system if far from being settled. First we must all understand these two operating systems are as different as they are? Do I make sense? Windows diehards will give rant to you about the superiority of Windows over Linux. Some people will put up with your justifications but not Linux developers. Telling them your reasons as to why you’d rather run windows than Linux will sound absurd to them. Just to point out, never say the following to a Linux developer.
Arguments which are not true according to a Linux developer
First, you will appear stupid and old school to argue that Windows OS is pre-installed. Come on, in this era we are, is installing an operating system hard? Your point will sound as if nobody has ever re-installed windows. If you haven’t, then you are alone.
The second thing to never mention to a Linux developer is that you find Windows easier to use and operate. Okay, most probably, it is because you have been using Windows since you went to that computer college. He will not give a nod to your funny argument simply because Linux desktop distros are extremely easy to use nowadays.
The third point to never bother waste your time putting across is that Linux has less software as compared to windows. Having whatever software in your PC is a matter of personal preference and the uses of your PC. Each operating system has its pitfalls. For instance, it is true that some Windows software has troubles running on Windows itself.
The fourth thing that you should rather say to a Linux developer is that Window users have the privilege of getting more commercial support when they have a problem than Linux users. He or she will quickly disapprove you and refer you to do a Google search for Linux enterprise support. Shame will be unto you because you will find that there are several high profile companies working with Linux to offer support options.
The fifth not so cool idea to rant to a Linux developer is that Linux is not as stable as Windows. Stability of the operating system will depend on the software installed and the specifications of your desktop. If it’s an issue to do with viruses, then it is you that all the fingers point.
Lastly, giving all the credit to Linus Torvalds (who does not mince his words) for his idea of creating free software is something a Linux developer would not want to hear. He will make you realize that ideas are built upon by different other people over time. In fact it is Richard Stallman who was the first one to introduce the idea of an operating system for all free software.
Kindly spare a Linux developer your vendetta
Proponents of Linux and who have used it for several years will not take into your baseless arguments about the operating system. Unless you want to start world war III, keep your thoughts to yourself and choose whatever works for you. Trying to argue out your points that Windows is better than Linux is all what you should never pose to a Linux developer. To him, you will simply look uniformed about Linux.
