Pre-University Paper from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science - Software, , language: English, abstract: When we hear the name „Linux" we usually think about an operating system for nerds and other people with too much free time. Well, that's only partially true since Linux itself isn't an operating system. Linux is a core for operating systems which are built around it. The history of Linux dates back to the early nineties when Linus Torvalds, a student of computer science and a member of the Swedish minority of Finland started to write his own little operating system core just for fun. Later he mentioned this operating system core on a newsgroup and he also added the possibility of releasing it under the GPL - eventually he did so. This paper examines and compares technical aspects as well as everyday use and of Linux and Microsoft Windows.

Over the last four years, Linux has established itself as the fastest growing server platform for enterprise Information Technology. As the server platform grows the desktop platform is also growing, domestically and abroad. One of the areas most lacking information, however, is in the capability of Linux as a desktop replacement for a Microsoft Windows dominated enterprise. Linux Business Desktop Migration for Windows Users explores the advantages of Linux as a desktop platform as well as the possible pitfalls associated with a Linux migration. The goal is to make the leap with as little disruption as possible and realize tangible benefits in the end. In order to make this possible, the book focuses on four main points: Teaching the factors involved in a Windows to Linux migration, including how to form an overall IT strategy for a company with an established Windows user base; Explaining data migration and how to move data from a Windows installation (Office documents, address books, etc.) to a Linux desktop; Improving the existing application migration from Windows to Linux; and Providing end user instruction, including tactics to get the most of the Linux desktop with consideration given to users? existing Windows knowledge. Unlike other books on the topic, Linux Business Desktop Migration for Windows Users discusses both the strategy of why Windows users would use Linux and how to actually use the Linux operating system, providing a complete beginning to end guide for moving your business over to Linux.
