It goes without saying that Linux is full of a wide variety of useful applications that aren’t found anywhere else. Ubuntu in particular is a good example of a Linux package full of these applications. Linux itself is a very good operating system to use. However, what happens when a Linux user, for whatever reason, must use Windows? Luckily, just as Linux can with WINE and Mac OS X can do it with VMWare and Parallels, Windows can run Linux applications seamlessly on its own operating system. This is possible with a piece of software called andLinux.
In spite of the fact that Linux has been in use for almost twenty years now, it’s still one of the most criminally underrated operating systems in the world. Although Linux has proven it’s worth both in the IT world on countless servers and mainframes and the consumer sphere on millions of desktop and notebook PCs, it’s still chronically misunderstood. Many myths concerning the Linux operating system have sprung up over the years which scare people away from giving it a try, which is a shame. Here are just a few of the most persistent Linux myths that exist today, and the reasons why they’re simply not true.
Due to the rapid rate at which technology progresses, the price of computer parts drop substantially over short periods of time. With this in mind, it is certainly possible to build a Linux PC for under $200. Granted, you won’t have all the bells and whistles of more expensive machines, but you will have a decent machine that is able to run Linux sufficiently.
