LINUX is an open source operating system means no need of license for using it.It is derived from unix operating system.It is the software on a computer that enables applications and the computer operator to access the devices on the computer to perform desired functions.It was designed to provide personal computer users a free or very low-cost operating system comparable to traditional and usually more expensive Unix systems.
Linux is more secure OS than MS OS :
In Windows, users are generally given administrator access by default, which means they pretty much have access to everything on the system, even its most crucial parts. So, then, do viruses. It's like giving terrorists high-level government positions.
With Linux, on the other hand, users do not usually have such "root" privileges; rather, they're typically given lower-level accounts.
, MS OS is not an open source OS if compared to LINUX which is free : Linux is F-R-E-E. You can download it, install it, use it. For MS OS you have to puchase its license.
Complicated: Some features of LINUX is complicated to use.It require a good deal of computer knowledge in order to get them to work.
On the other hand MS OS is user friendly OS. When you get to know Windows well, you'll find out that there are so many functions that you can do almost anything quite easily.
Compatibility: Almost every application, driver or game will work on MS Windows OS.
Linux does not have as many programs and games as MS Windows OS.
