Answer:

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.

Answer:

Linux is an operating system developed in late 90s and its codes were freely available on internet and any one can  modify those codes and create their own operating system this is how it is differ from ms os. linux is a free ware but ms is not.

Answer:

Linex is also an Operating system just like other Operating systems but it's open source i.e (its free for everyone). Its source code (Base framework of it's programming language) is available for free so anyone can customize it and make his/her own custom Os, So it's highly cutomizable and free. On the other hand Micosoft Windows is a commercial Operating system which is owned by a company called Microsoft and its source code is not available for anyone, So it's not customizable at all and not free for anyone.One has to buy Genuine Windows from market and in case you're thinking that how come you're using windows for free in your System, the answer is it's a pirated copy of windows not the genuine one.

Answer:

linux os is an open source OS, widely recognized by its security. and ms OS is not open source. but user friendly and widely recognized.

Answer:

To understand difference, we must understand origin of both OS. Windows is a commercial operating system created by Microsoft with exclustive partnership with Intel processors. This Wintel created a closed ecosystem to displace the exising threat of IBM and MAC hardwares which were predominant then. As more softwares and hardware drivers got customized to wintel it gained monopoly in PC space with people having little choice but to buy the entire suite of products. Also, IBM & AT&T ran Unix which was a very stable and secure OS for high workload transactions but again its propreitory nature added a huge cost.

Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, wanted to create a platform independent operating system. It all began as a college project where he tried to create the existing functionality of UNIX by wriing code from scratch and finally making it public. Now people could work together and improve on the code. This lead to era of crowd sourcing and distributed creation -moderation lead to evolution of Linux. Various version developed by various distrbutors prominent being RedHat, OpenSuse, Ubuntu, Debian etc. The impact has been so huge that all android phones and most embedded computing, cloud solutions, server deployments and client PCs uses some version of Linux.

Answer:
  • Linux is based upon the UNIX philosophy and supports the standard POSIX systemcall interface. Windows on the other hand only provides for POSIX using an emulation layer.
  • Linux development is open source and is contributed to by many different organizations and individual developers around the world. The development of the Windows operating system is constrained to within Microsoft. However, external developers can write drivers which can work from within the kernel. This naturally translates into their own respective licensing models.
  • Linux itself is only a kernel and often used in combination with the GNU toolchain and the X window manager to provide a GUI interface. Windows on the other hand is always packed with it's own windowing/graphics system.
Answer:

Linux is an operating system. It is open source operation system but ms OS is closed source. Linux is editable, we can edit it and use it according to our choice.
