Linux is one of the widely used Open source operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distributions. Linux kernel and operating system first released on October 5 1991 by Linus Torvalds is one of the defining components of any Linux system.
There are different operating systems available which we use daily but here i will provide you with some of the best reasons where Linux installation on a machine is better as compare to other operating system specifically for those who are new to computer world.
Viruses and malware can attack your PC anytime and this is one of the most important reasons why you can select Linux. As on Linux operating system the concern of viruses attack become zero. Therefore purchasing of virus protection software cost is waived off after using Linux.
Being Open source in nature Linux provide you with good security in your Operating system. Incase any virus released in Linux operating system you will get quick patches released either on the same day or next day. This normally doesn’t happen if you use any other operating system.
3: Cost effectiveness
Another reason for being open source is the cost effectiveness as other operating system requires licensing towards the installation. Say for eg: Microsoft licenses are only allowed on a single computer whereas Linux can be distributed to any number of computers without spending single penny.
With Linux advantage you have freedom to control every part of your operating system. Again Linux provides you with freedom of licences and control over desktop look and feel.
