Windows vs. Linux/Unix

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

James Mohr is a long time Unix/Linux fan with a great Linux site at http://www.linux-tutorial.info/

Part of that site is a long series of articles on "The Great Linux-vs-NT Debate" which attempts to honestly dissect the virtues and faults of both OSes. I think Jim has done a great job with that and his site in general.

Recently, Jim took down those pages, explaining that they are out of date. I agree: Windows 7 isn't a bad operating system (though I still like almost anything else better).

I have my own (highly prejudiced) views of Linux/Unix vs. Windows:

Linux sucks, Windows is better than Linux
In Defense of Unix (and Linux, of course)
Dinner for Twenty
Still not as hard as Unix
Love it or hate it
NT vs. Unix

and probably other babblings I don't recall right now.

Jim's stuff is a lot more coherent. Jim is also the author of The SCO Companion and other books

UNIX does not allow path names to be prefixed by a drive name or number; that would be precisely the kind of device dependence that operating systems ought to eliminate. (Andrew S. Tanenbaum)
