Hello...

This is a tricky one to answer, because, in the spirit of openness many Linux programs have been made to work on Windows. Firefox and OpenOffice.org, for example, are the primary web browser and office suite on Linux, but both have Windows versions. That said, there are lots of programs that come as standard on Linux that will be completely new to Windows users

But ultimately the only limit to what Linux can do is you! You don't need to pay for a separate CD and DVD burner, because Linux comes with one. You don't need a seperate program like Photoshop for creating images, because Linux comes with one. The magic is that Linux comes with all these things out of the box - you don't need to buy software to make your computer do what you need, because it's the default under Linux.

hello,

     Linux (in this case Ubuntu) my primary operating system. In particular much of the discussion revolved around the uses of various operating systems and different ways of doing the same thing in various ones. It occurred to me then to try and verbalize things I could do with Linux, that I could not with Windows.  windows is able to do that linux (more specifically ubuntu) cant do...


Thanks.

Hello,

Re-booting after every software installation or update is very annoying in Windows. While this is not necessary in Linux, but on Windows is rule of tumb – every installation is asks us to re-boot, or after we download the Upgrades annoying window pop up and say – will reboot in 10 minutes, save our work. In Linux we can learn how it works, compile and if we want we can modify or tailor for our needs, adding new functionality for instance.

Thanks,
Pavithra

Hello,

Advantages of linux are,

Easy to install applications.
Installing new programs in Ubuntu is  easier than in Windows. You don’t need to accept agreements because its all open source so there is no need to click Next 20 times before the program is installed.

Secure.
Security is not just an enhancement like in Windows. It is a pilar of the Linux Core witch makes hard the task to virus creators or to hackers. You can use your Linux without antivirus program and without being ever annoyed by a virus.

Easy to change options.
Ubuntu comes with a control panel but also comes with a menu next to the Applications menu where you simply select the thing you want to change, be it the Desktop background or the network settings. Everything on the windows that appear is simple and there are just the options you need so it is easy to change the options.

Community.
The community behind Linux, especially Ubuntu is what attracts many people to the operating system.

Free.
Everything about Ubuntu is free, the operating system (you can even have them send you a copy of the operating system for a small fee that covers postage), the software installed is free (including all the software you can download) any help and support is free. The whole experience is 100% free, because it is open source. Open source means that you can distribute and even edit the code behind the program.

thanks,
