Linux is the alternative to Windows.Sin it seems that Linux has its limitations. What is the limitation of Linux vs. Windows? As Windows does not Linux? Or Linux is as good as Windows?

Hi,In general, I greatly prefer running under Linux as compared with Windows. Please don't misunderstand me - I think WIndows 7 is a very nice piece of work, and the fact that it remains more or less compatible with earlier and much less accomplished variants of Windows is nothing short of a miracle. What I miss in Windows is the sheer power and configurability of Linux.
Linux has progressed quite a bit in recent years to where it has become a better and better alternative for Windows users. If you’re simply tired of Windows, don’t want to pay for new Windows releases, or you’re still running Windows XP, it’s always a good time to take a good look at whether Linux can work for you.
Linux is often considered as a geeky OS when compared to Windows and Mac OS X, however, over the past few years it has become much more easier to use and almost emulates a desktop environment which is similar to Windows and Mac.There are several popular Linux Distros like Ubuntu, Fedora, JoliCloud, Linux Mint and more which are now widely used by people.

When a few years ago I decided to move from Windows to Linux (I created on my machine separate partitions for Linux and booted from Lilo or Grub either into Windows or into Linux, according to job requirements.
I normally used my laptop PC during the day in a company that had a Windows based LAN and therefore I normally had to boot in Windows during the day whereas I wo
I set my NIC on Windows so that I have two interfaces:
one (the first one) has IP 192.168.0.5
the other one has IP 10.10.10.1.
On a Linux machine I set an interface to 10.10.10.2. On another Linux machine I set the interface to 10.10.10.3. And tried to ping those machines. Here is the result. Linux to Linux is ok. Windows to Linux also is ok.
So I am reading a good bash fest on Linux Distros vs Windows 8 and Mac os X. Here is a link to the original event GNU bearing gifts. The article, and comments following the article, about Linux falling flat compared to Windows 8 and os X, primarily focused on Linux distros not working out of the box. The claim was: Windows 8 and os X simply boot up and you are ready to go.
Linux and Windows. It’s like comparing Apples and Oranges. Software can be compared, but how do you do so fairly and honestly? And what sort of presumptions should I make concerning where the reader of this article stands? I presume you are among the “rare” Linux users.
I was wondering what is the alternative or equivalent to Windows services on Gnu/Linux. Is it a sever like X or Pulseaudio but that wouldn't make any sense because the theme service on windows, a alternative to that on Gnu/Linux would be a WM, or a DE. Is it like the Windows registry when there isn't truly a alternative or a equivalent to it other then the your home user directory.
I am from the Philippines a 12 yr old kid. I recently discovered the wonders of Linux and i can say that so far, I love it! I have downloaded 11 or 12 linux distros.. and have used 1(linux mint 16) to reformat my dad's very slow Windows Vista PC. I have also installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS(WUbi),Joli OS(windows installer) and Linux Lite on my Windows 7 pc.
