The prior difference between Linux and Windows operating systems is that Linux is totally free of cost whereas Windows is a marketable operating system and is costly. An operating system is a program intended to control the computer hardware and behave as an intermediary between user and hardware.

Linux is an open source operating system that allows people to view the source code and contribute to its improvement. Users of Windows, on the other hand, do not have access to source code, and it is a licensed operating system.

Linux is a computer operating system.

Linux is a Unix-based operating system that is free and open source. It offers a programming and user interface that is compatible with Unix-based systems, as well as a wide range of applications. A Linux system also includes a number of independently produced components, resulting in a Unix system that is fully interoperable and free of proprietary code.

Although the Linux kernel uses a traditional monolithic kernel for performance reasons, its modular feature allows most drivers to be dynamically loaded and unloaded at runtime. Linux is a multiuser system that protects processes. Message queue, shared memory, and semaphore are all techniques that facilitate interprocess communication.

In Linux, an abstract layer governs the various file systems, yet the file system appears to users as a hierarchical directory tree. Networked, device-oriented, and virtual file systems are also supported. A page cache that is unified with virtual memory systems is used to access disc storage. The memory management system combines page sharing and copy-on-write to reduce the duplication of shared data among various processes.

Ubuntu 17.10 is the most recent version of the linux operating system. The supplied version's default user interface is GNOME, Ubuntu Unity (in older versions).

What is Windows?

Windows is a licensed operating system with no access to the source code. It is intended for people who have no prior computer programming experience, as well as business and other commercial customers. It is really basic and easy to use.

Windows is adaptable and portable, and it supports a variety of operating systems, symmetric multiprocessing, and client-server computing. It has preemptive scheduling, virtual memory, and integrated caching.

The most recent version of Microsoft's Windows operating system is Windows 10 (1709). Windows shell is the default user interface (Graphical). It employs a hybrid kernel, whereas earlier versions relied mostly on the micro kernel.
