Hi, today I want to share a few reasons for why you should check out Linux, especially if you are a programmer:
Open Source 🐧
Linux is completely open source, its free and you can have a look at all of the source code. If you want you can become part of the Linux developer community and contribute to it with your own code. If there are any issues, these normally quickly get fixed because of the high number of people involved.
Compared to Windows 10 Linux is a safer Operating System. Also there are only few attacks on Linux anyway, because only about 2% of the users use Linux on their Desktops or Laptops.
Programmer friendly 👩💻
Linux is made for programmers by programmers and you dont need to tinker around that much to get developer related applications/IDEs etc. running. You can decide when and which updates you want to install.
Choose your distribution 🎨
Linux offers a wide range of distributions, like Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Debian,… so you are able to choose the one that fits best your needs. Also you have a lot more customizability options than on Windows, like for example for your user interface.
Resource friendly ⚡
Linux can use less resources than other Operating Systems and runs on new and old computers. On my desktop I have Windows and Linux and my PC is more silent running on Linux.
What do you like most about Linux? Have a nice day!☀😎
