Linux Distro means what also does it provides equal features compared with Windows 7?
  

Linux?s clash to free Windows as the people?s desktop operating system of choice has been a long, sometimes bitter and ultimately unsuccessful one. Hence Linux has to be launching new OS and it is the Distro. This is the Linux distribution, a specific vendor's package of the GNU/Linux operating system. Software Distro is a set of software components that provide similar kind of features which is present on the windows 7. I want to discuss here that is this distro is similar to the windows 7 or not. Thanks for any opinion.

I am disappearing to say no due to require of hardware manufacturers/software developers support for Linux. However, something rather extraordinary is happening in the Linux world. We?re leaving to well the two OS beside one another in a sequence of tests, checking their usability, features as well as performance, mobility, business aptitude and more. Then we found that the Linux has to be containing different kind of features as compared to the Windows 7.

It's something of a tradition that we pit the latest version of Windows against our trusty old operating system. This is happen with this both OS. The distro is a version of the Linux and we try to compare it with the windows 7. When we compare the 64-bit version of Windows 7 against its equivalent Ubuntu release, Linux was faster on most of the examination. Both operating systems now occupy a distinctly different part of the market. Hence we can?t say that both are similar.

Windows 7 Home Premium is the essential version that should appeal to most casual users. If you would like to play games that are not Linux specific and you wish for it "out of the box" then don't use ANY Linux distro for anything. This will be happen most of the time that we think that Linux & windows 7 have similar feature. Then we try to play the win 7 video game on Linux but it won?t work. Hence I also think that this is not the similar feature based OS.

To observe whether Linux still is a quicker desktop to that of Windows, we have spent a huge deal of time and energy in comparing the two vastly different operating systems. This two are the different platform based OS and if we try to compare them then there will be lot of points comes. Such as the video games play on windows 7 but not on Linux. The graphics quality of the Linux has been slightly better than the windows OS.

There will be not many similarity presents between the Linux and the windows 7 OS. If we try to compare the Windows 7 and the Ubuntu then we found that the structure of the Ubuntu is look like windows 7. There are plenty of similarity present between the Ubuntu and win 7 but not Linux and win 7. We all know that the Ubuntu is based on Linux but it will be designed in such a way that it works like windows 7 OS.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was used as the Linux distribution to represent the modern-day Linux desktop. If we compare it with the windows 7 then we realize that it also look similar with the win 7. linux distro is an advanced step of the Linux that will be try to provide the similar kind of features of the windows 7. Hence in some rare case, we think that it is similar to the windows 7. There will be not major thinks happen on this Linux distro OS.
