Linux question

Why Linux? Why do you prefer it, and why do you love to use it?

Re: Linux question

Hi;

Linux is cleaner than Windows.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Linux question

In your opinion, between Bash and PowerShell, which do you prefer? Seems the new PowerShell is good too!

regards

Joe

Re: Linux question

Windows sys admins? I don't know about PowerShell, but opposite heading slash of POSIX seems nice and natural to me. Says, echo $HOME, you got your (cd+pwd) with a variable call in Linux. However, I'm glad Bash is exist, it's more than just a type-output shell.

Re: Linux question

With Windows your computer tells you what to do, with Linux your computer does what you want smile

Re: Linux question

Initially i got tired of all the proprietary software that i was using in Windows. It was often neither clear, neither safe, neither free, so i kind of stumbled on a few open source programs that were just as good if not better than the proprietary ones. So after some investigating i found out that Linux in general is like that and so i tried it. Since then i have abandoned windows completely, because the whole linux ecosystem is completely usable if not better than windows (unless you work with adobe, cad programs etc) and it's free, open source and safe and you can do whatever you want with it, there are no restrictions. One can build it completely from the ground up, if he so wishes!

Re: Linux question

LInux is superior to Windoze but it is not without its own brand of problems.
