In this post I will share experience using linux command, and was we can do and play with a operating system for Developer, or shorter is Linux. You don’t need to know more about this, I will show you how you can create funny program with some Linux command, what you can’t do in Windows.
1. Linux updates and upgrades do not require you to reboot
Re-booting after every software installation or update is very annoying in Windows. I keep wondering why this is not necessary in Linux, but on Windows is rule of tumb – every installation is asking you to re-boot, or after you download the Upgrades annoying window pop up and say – will reboot in 10 minutes, save your work. This is really annoying.
With Linux all you need to do is run : sudo apt update
Then have a cup of coffee until it update your computer.
2. No need to install drivers every time you plug in your computer USB device
OK, I understand that there are custom devices which use uncommon drivers like printers, cameras, etc, but why on earth every time you plug in Windows simple mass storage disk drive, or USB-Serial converter, or Mouse, or Keyboard – devices which are standard and are embedded in every Windows OS after W98 it ALWAYS ask for drivers which are already there? Why on Linux I plug the external HHD or Flash drive and it automatically mounts on my computer and I can work with it, while Windows is asking me for drivers and several minutes scans and show me different windows with warnings and Continue buttons like I’m doing something scaring which may ruin my OS?
3. You can move image/boot-able drive between machines without need for reinstall
Yes! this is something windows users can’t imagine is possible! I do remember back in the dark ages Windows asked me to re-install after I have upgraded the RAM memory size! Now imagine you get your Windows boot-able HDD and plug it on other computer, will it boot? no way!
4. system config in files not registers mess
Now this is one of the most annoying WIndows features – after several months of installing and removing software your registers and windows/system directory becomes so bloated with shared DLLs and mess that some people start making money by writing registry cleaning software!
5. You can’t boot windows from USB Stick
Probably they didn’t find a way to ask you for registration and to collect your money every time they sense this USB is plug to other computer??
6. You cant see this on Windows:
# uptime 15:54PM up 122 days, 11:22, 5 users, load average: 0.12, 0.30, 0.13
every few days if you do not reboot windows machine it starts to act slowly due to the severe memory fragmentation
