Remember the old saying of Linux is safer than Windows? Well, Dell has spoken this time regarding Windows. They said that Linux is safer than Windows for one particular reason - Not many viruses were written for Linux.
Well, Dell has a point though. Not many people arer well versed in most of the DOS command these days although the latest Ubuntu is trying to close the gap between Linux and Windows' infamous GUI interface. I think Ubuntu is doing well. However, I don't quite get Linux because I am more used to the user friendliness of the Windows system.
One good reason of using Linux is that the OS is not prone to crashes as much as Windows. This will make Linux more stable than Windows. However, the development of Linux is rather slow but yet the open source is constantly improving...
