Linux VS Windows usability

Filed under
OS

In my previous article of Why Linux STILL runs faster than Windows a reader left a comment asking about processes, command line interaction and system setup between Linux and Windows. I think what he is really wanting is a comparison of usability between Linux and Windows.

Now in my articles there is a common theme. I like Linux Smile I am very enthusiastic about this operating system and have even been called a zealot! Well if the shoe fits....Smile I have also posted quite a few about windows too and consider myself pretty good on that platform as well. Whenever I do post on either operating system I try (I do, I really do) to be objective and give a fair showing to all parties.

Now both Linux and Windows are difficult to compare point for point as the mindset for each one is different. The method of working in each operating system is different. As I have mentioned before. If you think of one operating system as a car and the other as a motorbike you will see that you cannot use both in the same way. A car cannot be ridden like a motorbike and a motorbike cannot be driven like a car. To get back to the electron world you cannot look at Windows through Linux eyes and you cannot look at Linux through Windows eyes.

Let me start off with common points between the two OS's.
