My comparison of Windows versus Linux

My preference for Linux on my personal machine grows each day. I said it during a job interview – how with Linux updating a software package was as simple as:

In RedHat or CentOS

yum install httpd

Or if you’re running Debian

apt-get install httpd

And it doesn’t require rebooting the kernel. The service just gets invoked by typing

/etc/init.d/httpd start

or if you prefer

service httpd start

Just that simple.

But in Windows almost every software install requires a complete reboot of the OS. It’s stupid.
