Switching from Windows to Linux

Why did uncle drac switch to Linux?

Well my dear boys and girls, first I must say Windows had been a great partner in crime for years and years providing different services. But it has issues when it comes to pirate copies. The cracked versions with all its vulnerabilities to security threats, the choking and lag, most of the time that will give you headaches.

Well it does not yet finish from there with the answer if you has said, Uncle drac use a genuine softs. Windows is a hard core built with good features but really heavy on its armor thought. Easy work loads and easy access on many softwares. But yet summing up with security threats, it much more far recently the world feared the face of RANSOMWARE.

The lag was never, a suited feature when it comes to multitasking, specially when your working with high end media softwares such as After Effects, Premier Pro, Autodesk Maya or anything that kills a huge amount of RAM and VGA.

But that doesn’t mean Linux is the pro on media platforms, well then its better to switch on to a MAC Computer (with experience).

So coming to the point, Linux has made a great change for uncle drac. Made things easier except few softwares where I still require Windows. Linux Distros are far better than windows for the following reasons below

  • More free applications
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Reliable
  • Smooth and Supportive
  • Varitey of Distro’s (Operating Systems)
  • Master your own OS and structure as your needs
  • No software cost at all
  • Could install 3rd party windows softwares
  • In built virtual machine
  • No need of special security firewalls or programs
  • System integration with 3rd party softwares

Softwares are available on installation library and there are different other available softwares to be downloaded externally.

Hands on experience with easy user interfaces on some of the most used distro’s. For an example, some prefer to use a desktop version as well as a server based administration platform and a good options would be using Linux CentOS or if you prefer a nice decent and easy interface there is always Ubuntu. Some who is hyper would get Linux Arch, some who are interested on testing and bit of back end play, could use Linux Kali or Backtrack. If its only server based a massive preference given for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Well if its just on the media playground a ones choice would be Linux Mint.

So its always depends on the liking of what OS your more comfortable with. This is a light intro about why use, Linux? So that’s it folks, the decision is yours but always feel free to drop in a message to uncle drac for more information. Have a nice day mates!
