10 things where Linux is better than Windows

Discovering whether Windows or Linux is a better option for many people can be an uphill battle. For power users, it might seem that a Windows OS offers an easier usage compared to Linux. Lack of knowledge about Linux distro may lead to making Windows your preferred choice. But in reality, Linux should be your choice. Are you wondering why?
Here are advantages associated with Linux over Windows

It's Open Nature
Unlike Windows, it's possible to access the source codes with Linux.

Security
With Windows OS, one is prone to a variety of attacks. But with Linux, you get a guarantee against such attacks. Linux working system makes it secure compared to Windows. That's why you need to purchase an anti-virus program to protect your Windows. You do not require such protection with the Linux System.

Work Brilliantly in Order Hardware
Windows OS is slower on older hardware. As windows OS evolves, so does the hardware required to run it successfully.
Linux, on the other hand, is compliant with aging machines as it uses fewer system resources.

Consistent User Interface
Let's face it. Windows 8 was one of Microsoft's biggest failure. The level user interface was a disaster, not to mention the windows mode fix by Windows 10.
Linux offers a unified programs design with a single settings menu. The user experience is entirely cohesive and consistent.

Performance
Linux runs faster than both Windows 8 and 10.
Unlike in Windows, where all the processing power is taken up by the operating system, Linux utilizes a lighter footprint hence increased performance.

Command Line
Windows CLI is vastly underpowered compared to the superior Linux CLI. For the advanced user, you can do anything when met with only the Linux command line.

Updates
There is nothing more nerve wrecking than the 'Installing update 1 of 100' message you're in hurry to turn on your computer for an easy task.
Even more annoying is the updates Windows forces on users without a decent notice period. With a Linux operating system, you get to choose when you want to receive updates without rebooting your operating system.

Linux is Free
If you are using windows, you probably already used up your free Windows upgrade a few years ago and you now have to pay for it.
Linux is free and useful and accessible to the whole public.

Better Support
If you are experiencing problems with your Linux system, or you need is to post a threat in forums, and other people reply with a detailed solution within minutes.
The number of Linux users active on dozens of forums, chat rooms and websites exceed that of any Windows-based forums.

Freedom of Usage
Linux is an open-source operating system that allows you to modify its source as per your requirements.
This allows you full freedom to install applications and you can use it as a desktop, a server or a firewall.
Windows is available in a default desktop theme, whereas Linux allows you to choose from various desktop themes.
