Hi

What is Linux best for? I heard Linux is the best when it comes to setting up web servers. Is this true?

Thanks

Best

Linux can do as much as Windows can (if not more) Its not best for anything nor is it worse. I think you need to re-evaluate your question and clarify what you mean

Peace

Servers

Linux servers are very good. Linux is used by many companys to host servers (httd, ftp etc) due to the phenominal times between reboots (the highest recorded uptime is 4 years by a OpenBSD server without restart)

Microsoft update servers do not run on Microsoft Architectures.

Linux is not just used for servers. Desktop PCs can run linux, as can gaming machines

Peace
