“El Mejor Kernel”

written by Temple225 on 07/07/2021

Linux es el mejor kernel que he usado en mi vida como desarrollador, posee todas las herramientas necesarias y ademas contiene una gran comunidad que brinda soporte en muchas areas, se puede encontrar diferentes distribuciones que se basan en linux, donde cada una de ellas se especializa en un tematica, ya sea graficos, desarrollo, seguridad, etc.

“Linux is the most horrible operating system I've ever used”

written by PrincessSerrano336 on 31/08/2020

It is the most non user friendly operating system. If you switch from windows to linux. It will not be easy to go back to windows. Windows let us download linux. But the linux creator have created a system that will not allow you to easily get windows back. I've been trying for last 2 days to get my windows back. Still no luck. Hate you linux creators.

If you install Linux, but then suddenly (for whatever reason) want Windows back, you should've considered dual booting. Windows installation is not impossible, and if you are afraid to try things yourself (no offense), there are some great tutorials on Google. I personally like using Balena Etcher, but that doesn't really support installing Windows (for the record). Also, if you really then see re-installing Windows impossible, you could consider trying to explore the world of Linux more. As I mentioned earlier, Balena Etcher is really easy to use, and can help you with installing other distros (distributions), giving you a larger view of Linux.

In case you want to install windows you better may contact their service team. They are nice and helpful and made it very simple to buy it again and again and again…

Well, that is a bit of an exaggeration! I am afraid that it comes well behind Windows and OSx in popularity on PCs. (Different story on Tablets, phones and servers though).

However as a Linux user I am not unhappy about that as it saves Linux from becoming a dumbed-down vehicle for advertising and malware, the way that Windows has been going.

“Linux (Windows Alternative)”

written by Duke_Nukem on 19/11/2013

I have used Linux for about 12 years, almost exclusively. It's nature and position in the IT world is not understood by most people, I have heard it described either as a "professional system meant for web severs" or a "Windows rip-off, of dubious legality". In fact its pedigree is older than Windows being basically a version of Unix if you look under the bonnet, and Unix was, and still is, a more powerful system than Windows. Linux is now one of the two main versions of Unix; the other is MacOS. What confuses people, and can put them off, is that Linux is free. That is because the companies supporting Linux (including such names as Novell, IBM, Hewlett Packard) treat it as a commodity from which they make an income by offering professional support. There is nothing "cheap" or disreputable about it; most of the Internet runs on it, and it is the basis for many handheld devices such as navigators and Android phones. It is rock solid and to all intents and purposes immune to viruses and other malware. That's the background. As far as most PC users are concerned it is like any other modern OS. There is a wide choice of versions with various interfaces. Ubuntu is (maybe too much) like Windows 8 and Zorin is like Windows 7, if that is what you want. I use Mepis which uses a traditional interface on similar lines to Windows XP (but not deliberately so). The real difference from Windows and Macs is in applications. It must be understood that these are different platforms. You cannot eg run MS Office or Adobe Photoshop on Linux (although it is possible with some trickery). This is a show stopper for some people, but Linux has its alternatives - eg Libre Office as an office suite and Gimp for graphics, and these apps can save files inthe same format as the Windows apps do. Remarkably, some originally Linux apps have been adapted for Windows very successfully, such as Firefox. In fact, as far as using the Internet is concerned there is no difference from Windows whatever other than Linix's greater security. I have even broused known malware sites out of curiosity, bulletproof. I do not find the different apps a problem, but for many the main downside is the relative lack of games on Linux - reflecting its professional background. For this reason I have a dual boot arrangement on my PC for the occasional game - a choice when I boot beteween Linux and Windows.

I am adding this comment to my own review as I see that an advert link has been placed at the bottom saying "Buy now" and mentions some hundreds of pounds. The link is in fact to some Linux software for professional enterprises. That software might be fine, but the link gives the impression that Linux itself costs hundreds of pounds. It does not, it is free. Download a copy from the Internet or pick up a Linux magazine with it on the cover CD.

I am presently using Windows 7 specifically to play a flash game called World Golf Tour. Would this OS be as suitable? Can you run both?
