The Reasons I Adore Linux

The Reasons I Adore Linux

  • Without having to launch different software, I can extract something with a single command.
  • I’m able to print a document without having to open it.
  • With two magical words, apt upgrade, I can update all of my software.
  • I can run on almost any computer.
  • It has a lot of scalability… I can put it on a 486 or a dual core computer.
  • Help is easily available and is completely free.
  • The situation is well recorded.
  • There’s no need for some esoteric knowledge foundation.
  • A conventional assistance system that actually works (man)
  • CLI with a punch
  • It’s completely free.
  • It’s as free as beer.
  • It’s safer than Windows.
  • Many of the top programmes are free to use on Linux. Apache, MySQL, ProFTPd, SSH, and OpenVPN are examples. For Windows tools that perform the same thing, you’d have to pay hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. You will also have to pay for assistance.

The Reasons I Adore Linux

  • There’s no need to contact an Indian tech support facility to activate your totally legal operating system.
  • For maximum speed, Linux can be set to run without a graphical user interface. This is particularly beneficial for servers. This is something that other operating systems do not have.
  • It never asks whether I’m sure I want to delete something….twice.
  • Linux will actually offer you an explanation for why anything went wrong.
  • Linux will not inform me that my automatic updates are disabled at all times of the day.
  • When I update Linux, it will not switch on a firewall without my permission (Windows XP SP3) or enable services that I had previously blocked.
  • You’re essentially forced to use Linux as a “non-administrative” user.
  • With just one command, you can quickly unmount something. Instead of double-clicking on a stupid symbol and scrolling through all the USB devices connected in to find the proper one, you’ll discover that the device you’re trying to unmount isn’t available at the moment.
  • A simple config file is used to configure several of the apps. It’s a lot easier to edit this way than it is to navigate through pages and pages of tabs and radio check boxes. You may even use your own comments to organise your config file and make editing easier. Do you frequently change something? It should be near the top of the list. If you frequently turn something on and off and it is hidden behind nine gui screens, it may take you 10 5 times longer to do it.
  • It is much easier to install than Windows, depending on the distro.
  • More drivers for my hardware are detected and installed by Linux than by Windows.
  • Whereas Windows XP lacks drivers for my onboard Sata, Linux does.
  • Linux is continually releasing new kernels. Every couple of years, Windows releases a new version.
  • We can develop our own kernel with Linux, so we don’t have to wear a one-size-fits-all hat.
  • You can choose from a variety of desktop environments.
  • There are no spyware, viruses, or worms to worry about. Even if they were widely available, they could only be installed by hand.
  • It genuinely works on Linux when you “end a task.”
  • You can check the temperature of your CPU without having to install any software.
  • The autocomplete feature on the command line performs as expected.
  • Instead of three keys, I just need two to list the contents of a directory (ls vs. dir).
  • Linux’s CLI adds value to the operating system.
  • I can construct my own machine and still get a decent deal on the Linux retail edition (free).
  • SSH allows me to control my computer from afar. Remote desktop comes standard with Windows, and the last time I checked, it wasn’t secured. It was very slow, and only supported a few connected users unless you paid Microsoft extra for a terminal server.
  • I can check the OS uptime without having to install any Microsoft power user software.
  • Linux has a tool that can eject my CD-Rom for me. When creating automated CD backups and other programmes, this comes in helpful.
  • Linux passwords are not as easily cracked as Windows passwords.
  • With ‘lpr *.pdf’, I can print a whole directory of pdfs. On Windows, you’d have to use Foxit Reader or the hefty Adobe Acrobat to open them.
  • When a security flaw is discovered, I can anticipate a fix the next business day, not the second Tuesday of the month.
  • You can create some extremely beautiful desktop effects that rival those found in OSX.
  • You have the option of selecting a filesystem that better suits your requirements. With Windows, you have two options: the out-of-date NTFS file system or the much more out-of-date FAT32 file system.
  • You can obtain a free Linux CD shipped to you if you lose yours or don’t want to download one (ubuntu).
  • It can handle more than 3/4 GB of RAM without the need for updates or hacks.
  • You can acquire all of the programs you need without having to open your browser or take out your cash, and they are often superior to commercial options.
  • It never crashes… ever… Because it is so dependable, it has been utilized as dedicated router firmware.
  • You won’t have to pay any extra fees if you have many users connected.
  • Linux has a habit of not hiding information.
