Why is Linux better than Windows?
There are lots of reasons that Linux is better than Windows. Here are a few:
  • Linux is free! It costs you $0 to install it on as many machines as you want. There's no Linux Home, Linux Premium and Linux Ultimate - it's all there for you to have.
  • Linux is secure! It comes configured for maximum security out of the box, which means you don't need to buy separate software such as firewalls, virus checkers and anti-malware programs.
  • Linux is fast! Whereas Windows Vista needs at least 2GB of RAM to run comfortably, Linux runs just fine on computers from five years ago. As a result, if you install Linux on a new computer, it runs blazingly fast, and won't get slower over time.
Don't underestimate the importance of cost. It's only when people add up the cost of Windows + Microsoft Office + Security software + Games + Any other applications they buy do they realise that running Windows costs more than they realise.

  • Linux is stable! That means it's very, very hard to crash. Ordinary users can't damage the system - in fact, they can't change anything that doesn't belong to them unless they enter the system administrator's password.
  • Linux loves your hardware! Because Linux comes with thousands of drivers pre-installed, a huge amount of hardware - even the very newest stuff - works as soon as you plug it in.
  • Linux gives you choice! If you don't like your web browser, change it. If you don't like your office suite, change it. In fact, Linux offers you alternatives for just about everything, so you can choose what works best for you.
Don't underestimate the importance of cost. It's only when people add up the cost of Windows + Microsoft Office + Security software + Games + Any other applications they buy do they realise that running Windows costs more than they realise.
Why is Linux more secure than Windows?
The main reason that Linux is more secure than Windows is because it was designed that way. You see, Linux inherited a lot of its design from an earlier system called Unix, which was designed to handle lots of users connected to the same computer all at once. This was back before the idea of everyone having their own computer being a reality. With lots of people logged in at the same time, Unix was developed to make sure no one user could affect what other people were doing, which meant that it had to balance the computer's resources fairly and also ensure that users couldn't hack into each other's accounts. So, way before the internet took off, Unix was designed for security. Linux, because it inherits Unix's design, was secure from the very beginning, and its paranoid nature makes it perfect for use on the internet - Linux trusts nobody, which means hackers stand a very small chance of damaging your computer. Another reason why Linux is more secure is that it is built around the idea that a normal user shouldn't be able to break the computer. This means that if you want to do anything that might potentially damage things - such as deleting important Linux files - you need to enter the password for the system administrator. Even if someone managed to gain access to your account, they wouldn't be able to destroy your system because Linux wouldn't let them. You could let a five-year-old loose on Linux for hours, and the worst they could do would be to change your desktop background!
Is Linux faster than Windows?
Yes! Linux has been tuned to run on a huge variety of computers, down to the very smallest devices - IBM once made a wristwatch that ran Linux! Because of the need to run on so many different kinds of computers, Linux is very highly optimised - any computer with at least 512MB of RAM should run Linux perfectly, with 256MB being the minimum for general desktop use. If you have an older computer, there are Linux distros that use extra-light versions of programs so that they can get by just fine on 32MB. In comparison, Windows Vista needs at least 1GB of RAM to be comfortable, with many users reporting that least 2GB of RAM is needed to make Vista run at any speed. This is probably why you don't see any netbooks with Windows Vista installed!
I think I found a bug! Who should I tell?
You should go to the PHP Bug Database and make sure the bug isn't a known bug. If you don't see it in the database, use the reporting form to report the bug. It is important to use the bug database instead of just sending an email to one of the mailing lists because the bug will have a tracking number assigned and it will then be possible for you to go back later and check on the status of the bug.
