Its a NO-BRAINIER Linux gives you way more functionality even though it has a learning curve
Windows is rather easy. . . If you are looking to know more about the computer's potential linux is what you need
Windows 7, XP, 95 > Linux (all OS) > Win8-10
I like to use a Tiling Window Manager. And linux makes a lot of basic stuff very easy, Eg. Coping entire drives with dd or working with remote files as if they where local. The package management on pretty much every distro is far superior to windows
Better operating system system than Windows
Linux because it is open source. More functionality and allows the user to choose what they want for their operating system instead of Windows deciding it. Does take a while to grasp but it is worth it to have an operating system shaped for you or you can install packaged system. More choices = better
If you know how to use Linux. Nothing is impossible.
Linux might be better for programming, But in general windows offers everything other people need because not everyone is a programmer. Windows has a much cleaner user interface than most Linux distributions. More programs are made for windows. Also, Gaming
Windows is easier to control and it's widespread use as an operating system compared to linux is an indicator of it's popularity and thus quality.
Why is the use of an OS? To make the interaction of user with the computer easier, Right? Windows provides that, Windows is enough for all the standard PC users, Even professionals, Most apps are built for windows! Viruses? Its normal, If a person acquires good practices, Then your windows will not get viruses. If you want to run few apps which are not available on windows but on linux, Then there is Windows subsystem for linux available for you.
