Linux Mint compared to Windows

I will start off with an analogy using automobiles. Every car manufacture has their own styling, their own ways to use the singles, lights, etc. But at the same time, they all have the same steering wheel, gas and brake pedals all in the same place. They all cannot be the same because of trademarks, but also, they would not have anything to create competition.

Linux and all of its variation’s do not have the money behind them to advertise to the market like Windows did. On top of that, Linux took years of free development to get to the point that an average user can use it as well as Windows or Mac

Now that we are caught up to today, Linux Mint VS Windows is similar to the analogy that I started with. So, lets get to the differences. When setting up, they both look for updates, and have similar configurations such as user details and Wi-Fi and other options. Just like the standards of car. Now there are the differences just lights the signals, lights, radio and more of a car, there are differences between Windows and Linux.

As the title states, I am going to use Linux Mint VS Windows in general. There are many different kinds of Linux that claim they are similar looking to Windows, however, (In my opinion) this is the best version to start off with, if you are new to windows.

Linux Mint (as many others do) has built in applications that take care of everything from Microsoft document’s, to mp4’s to game and so on. There is even an application called Wine for running some of your favorite programs meant for Windows OS. Another great thing about it, you can plug into your present computer and play with it without install.

Windows, for the most part and after formatting need to install all of those favorite program after the fact and most you will need to pay for. With Windows, it is so detailed, you have to install to be able to use it.

Summary

If I was given a choice of which Operating System I would choose, I would chose Linux Mint. Mostly because it has everything I need right out of the box. Just plug in and play, no hassle no fuss.
