Compared to Windows Linux much younger. Therefore it is not really a fair comparison to say that Windows is better because of its functionality and a wide user base and thus a bigger support by other vendors. How long did Windows take to have its current features? In a way Linux is better because within a short period it has many features and a small footprint whereas Windows is bloated. It does not require a lot of resources to run, meaning we do not need to have the latest hardware to run the latest version of Linux. It is stable. We can run Linux non-stop without having to reboot. Try running Windows for several days and see what happens. My government was making plans to move towards Linux. Microsoft made an aggressive counter attack which resulted in the plans to be shelved. I am not going into details on what Microsoft did. I received the information from a government officer who was involved in the project. If Windows is that good there was no need for Microsoft to do what they did. In conclusion Linux rocks. Many are using Windows because they had to. all the best, rosdimy

It is difficult to compare the two because they are very different in many ways. I am an avid fan of several Linux distributions and often use Mandriva or Ubuntu as a second operating system. However, I would not abandon the use of Windows due to the varied and prolific software available.

I used both Linux and Windows. But I would say that I like Linux more that Windows. There is a lot of software available for Linux. And installing software update is fairly easy. On my Arch Linux I only need to type "pacman -Syu" on the terminal. The only thing that I like about Windows is games. A lot of application available for Windows but mostly commercial software. Using Windows is safe as long as you know what you're doing.

Microsoft OS are better than Linux for home use.I prefer Microsoft over Linux as I dont know much about it but find Microsoft OS far more reliable and easy to use then that of Linux.The graphics of Microsoft is far more better too then that of Linux.
