Which do you think between the operating system is better? Linux or Windows. Before we dig deeper into this OS war and for the sake of newbies out there Linux is an open source software which you can unlimitedly install and use it into your LAN or WAN networks without having to pay any licenses for its use. However, if you decide to use one of the compiled packages from various Linux distributions such as REDHAT, Debian, suse, mandrake etc then you have to buy their Linux package. But if you are a linux guru and dont want to shell out money for the package all you have to do is download the linux codes and compile it yourself and install it. On the Other Hand Windows OS is a commercial software that in order to install and use it legally into your network you have to purchase alot of licenses, these are the Server license and CAL Client Access Lincense oppss there is another one the EULA End User License Agreement.

Each OS has its own strenght. Technically speaking its obvious that Windows is far more better when it comes to DesKtop Operating system. I cant see anybody using Linux for their personal computer or laptop the primary reasons for these are hardware and software support. Computer Software and hardware designers are not interested in giving so much support in writing drivers or software for linux desktop OS.However Linux OS are prefered by ISPs Internet Service Providers and Intranet Networks due to its Low cost and security. Big Companies and ISPs usually have both OS running in their networks to cater for the demands of their clients because there are applications or Web software that are designed and optimize for windows platforms and thre are applications which are designed and optimized for LInus also.

These OS made a tremendous impact in the Information Technology industry. One has its own advantages but I am giving an edge with Windows. You can not deny that Windows is much better BIll Gates will not become the worlds riches man without his WIndows isnt it?
