Microsoft or Linux

By kevin203 ·
Some of my friend said that they would always like to propose to their client to go for Linux server compare to Microsoft Window server. But i go the other way round.

I'm really new in Linux (can say no experience on it) but do Linux really good enough to compare with Microsft Window server in all way or its good for "Too Technical" support needs?

Depends on the client and the need

by Chris.. In reply to Microsoft or Linux

Honestly there is a lot Linux can do, but it has a smaller available support group. E.G. there are less geeks out there to support it. MS isn't always the answer to a give issue but it is easier to support and more times than not the users can be walked through it remotely far easier!!

Evaluate the client, their internal support abilities and just what they are trying to accomplish with the given system. No Server OS is perfect, but this is where understanding your clients needs comes to play.
