open source vs proprietary

by Nick123 In reply to Comparison between window ...

Windows is a closed form of source code that is proprietary to Microsoft. You have to accept what they give you and you have to pay for it. Linux is an open source development and anyone can make changes. It is free and many professionals say it is more secure than windows.

It's a tough Decision

by chris.rodgers In reply to open source vs proprietar ...

I would say it depends on how big an organization you're a part of, Linux is great but being open source anyone can go in who has access and change things, then the next person to come along will have to sit and figure it out on his own what the previous person did, where as windows being proprietary can't change that much and isn't to hard find lots of help w/. So if it's only a one person box go Linux.

Linux is excellent choice for networking

by pocake In reply to It's a tough Decision

On my experience Linux is excellent choice for network services like DNS, DHCP and others. My company migrated from Windows NT network services to Linux and avoid lot of proplems with the important services. It's easy to configure, much more stable (me and my friend earned MCSE configuring and reconfiguring Windiws NT networking), and easy to migrate from one server to another.

Comparison between windows and linux

by pnyamhute In reply to Comparison between window ...

I like windows because you see what you want to do, help is available and user interface is good. Linux commands make feel useless if I can't figure out which command to use. However a thorough investigation of advantages and disadvantages of the two is required.
