The Linux operating system is considered the best alternative to Windows, because it is available free and completely open source, in addition to that it focuses on privacy, unlike Microsoft’s operating system, which is surrounded by many accusations related to privacy on the one hand, and is sold at a high price on the other hand.

This is in addition to the fact that other PC operating systems such as macOS and Chrome OS are not available to general users, as macOS is only available on Apple computers, while Chrome OS is only available on certain mobile devices with permission from Google.

The Arab Gateway for Technical News website said, as it is known, there is no integrated product that is completely free from defects, and this also applies to operating systems, except that Linux operating systems offer a large number of advantages in exchange for its disadvantages.

Linux is inexpensive

Free Linux is considered one of its most important features, as anyone can download the system and start using it immediately, and on the other hand, Linux software is also free and open source.

Linux offers alternatives to popular software, such as GIMP, which replaces Adobe Photoshop, with other alternatives to video editing applications or the Office suite, and even the paid software available for the Linux operating system comes at a low price compared to its alternatives on Windows.

Use linux without installing it

And the Linux operating system can work without being fully installed, just by relying on an external USB memory, and this is done by installing the operating system on it through the Rufus program or others, and then the user can start using it.

Perhaps this step is more ideal for testing the system before installing it, and if you have never used Linux, you should start with simple and easy-to-use distributions, such as Ubuntu or Mint.

Alternative to Windows on Vulnerable Devices

Old and weak PCs struggle to run the Windows operating system, because it needs relatively high operating requirements, so you can replace it with a light Linux distribution intended for older devices.

Among the most prominent of these distributions is Lubuntu, with other alternatives such as antiX, Puppy Linux, or TinyCore, and these distributions contribute to providing the best possible performance on older devices.

Safe Linux نظام

Linux is known as a secure operating system by default, meaning that it does not usually need antivirus applications and can be likened to Android in this case.

Perhaps one of the factors that ensures the Linux system this security is its limited spread compared to the Windows system, as hackers may not be interested in designing viruses for it in the first place, but from the technical side, it is a safe system, and some famous updates get periodic security updates from their developers.

Total control of the system

The Linux operating system provides full control over the operating system, with the freedom to install or not install updates, unlike Windows, which is largely controlled by Microsoft.

In addition, the Linux environment offers a very large diversity, as the user is able to access dozens of different distributions, which means that if the way a distribution works and its privacy policy changes, it can easily be replaced by another distribution, and distributions are different versions in shape and features, but they are based on Linux.

Ease of customization compared to Windows

The Linux operating system consists of a number of main components, and these components can be changed with other components, and this means that the user is able to customize the system as he wants.

For example, it is possible to completely change the design and effects of the desktop and get a completely new graphic experience, just by replacing the part responsible for it such as replacing GNOME with XFCE.
