WINDOWS vs LINUX : Comparison, Features and Security of Windows and LINUX

WE ARE ON OUR JOURNEY OF LINUX…….. EARLIER I HAVE JUST  GIVEN AN INTRO OF LINUX, BRIEF HISTORY, SHELL, KERNEL…….. now here I am going to give you some points which tells you about how the Linux differs from other OS(WINDOWS).

As I have earlier discuss on the basics of linux, so here before starting the difference between linux and other operating systems working and their features, i want to tell you some quick review of  WHAT ACTUALLY THE LINUX IS :-

LINUX IS THE KERNEL OF OPERATING SYSTEMS THAT LOOK LIKE AND PERFORM AS WELL OR BETTER THAN THE FAMOUS OPERATING SYSTEMS FROM AT & T BELL LABS. LINUS TORVALDS AND A LOOSELY KNIT TEAM OF VOLUNTEER HACKERS FROM ACROSS THE INTERNET WROTE LINUX FROM SCRATCH. IT HAS ALL OF THE FEATURES OF A MODERN , FULLY FLEDGED OPERATING SYSTEM:- TRUE MULTITASKING , VIRTUAL MEMORIES, SHARED LIBRARIES, DEMAND LOADING, SHARED, COPY-ON-WRITE EXECUTABLES, PROPER MEMORY MANAGEMENT, AND TCP/IP NETWORKING.

THE TRUE MEANING OF LINUX  IS “LINUS”  WHICH MEANS TO SAY “HELLO”
