Which Business Desktop OS? Windows or Linux
Author: JT Smith
Microsoft Windows has been the ideal choice for the desktop because of its simplicity, ease of use, good application and hardware support and also because it's easy to pirate. Over the years we've also seen the emergence of Linux as the new desktop OS platform with operating systems like Ubuntu, Fedora, Linspire and SLED gaining acceptance. This new acceptance of these Linux flavors is because Linux is no longer the command line OS as it was perceived earlier. All these flavors come equipped with user-friendly features and they're also easy to use. Many businesses tend to shift from Windows to Linux based on preconceived notions and assumptions.
