    Is your 'post' an exploitation of your sig?

      Bijay, unless you've had 30 days membership and at least 30 posts, you're not permitted to have signatures in our forums.... especially not when they're just advertising for other sites.

          You can't add a signature because you haven't been here 30 days, nor have you made 30 viable posts. So far, all I've found is nonsense posts to promote your links. That's spamming.

            Linux and windows

            Windows has two main lines. The older flavors are referred to as "Win9x" and consist of Windows 95, 98, 98SE and Me. The newer flavors are referred to as "NT class" and consist of Windows NT3, NT4, 2000, XP and Vista. Going back in time, Windows 3.x preceded Windows 95 by a few years. And before that, there were earlier versons of Windows, but they were not popular. Microsoft no longer supports Windows NT3, NT4, all the 9x versions and of course anything older. Support for Windows 2000 is partial (as of April 2007).

              it depends on the version of linux you lok at and what you call friendly!
              if you think XP is friendly then take a look at linspire/freespire, LinuxMint, Kubuntu/Ubuntu.

                There are many GUI available in Linux to make it more user friendly. GNOME and KDE are most popular GUI for Red Hat distribution.

                  If we look at flavors then we see that Windows come from Microsoft. In case of Linux it comes from different companies like Linspire, Lycoris, Red Hat, Slackware, SuSE, Knoppix, Ubuntu, Xandros and so on. Windows consist of two lines, former one is "Win9x" it consist of Windows 95, 98, 98SE and Me, the newer one is "NT class" it consist of Windows NT3, NT4, 2000, XP, and Vista. Linux is customizable in while windows is not. The ultra small version of Linux is used for networking, file sharing and act as a web server. Both Linux and Windows provide a GUI and a command line interface. The windows GUI has changed from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95. Linux GUI is optional, but in the case of Windows GUI is an integral component of the operating system. If we observe all the parameters then we can say in crystal clear terms that, still Linux had got miles to go.

                    No,Windows is also known as user friendly operating System. windows launch time to time new version's just like Win98,2000,2003,Xp,Vista,Windows7.Those version's launch from one platform. On the other hand Linux is not much user friendly Os. It's launches from different platform like Fedora,ubuntu,Redhat and many more.Today's Linux is used only company level.

                      This is inaccurate...woefully so. Linux is used widely for many different purposes, including, but not limited to, desktop use.

                      Windows has always been, and always will be, less secure than Linux. It used to be true that people traded security for ease of use, but that is no longer the case. Distributions like Linux Mint and Ubuntu are designed with ease of use in mind, and the "bell curve" for being a Linux user is flattening out at a significantly fast rate.

                      The only thing holding back Linux from taking off is corporate fatcats who choose to endorse and support Windows purely because Microsoft likes to grease their pockets with the hard earned cash of the uneducated masses.

                      Things like the port of Steam to Mac will, hopefully, open the floodgates for real open source migration of dominantly windows applications/games, which will therefore allow for a more reasonable comparison between Linux and Windows based purely on ease of use and accessibility.

                          Hi,
                          As a result of Linux being open source software, there is no one version of Linux; instead there are many different versions or distributions of Linux, that are suited for a variety of different users and task. Some Distributions of Linux include Gentoo, and Slackware, which due to the lack of a complete graphical environment is best, suited for Linux experts, programmers, and other users that know their way around a command prompt.

                            I'm not sure how interesting this thread is but my opinion on the matter is:YES,Windows is much more user-friendly than Linux.

                              depend still. i for once like linux because i don't like viruses.
                              installing in linux is just a single command unlike windows that you still have to look for it, download and double click etc..
