Linux Tutorial - Linux and Windows
  Turbo ---- Easing the Transition to Linux  

Linux and Windows

This section is about getting Linux and Windows to work together, either in the same network or even on the same machine. It also talks about things you can do to help yourself (and others) ugrade from Windows to Linux.

One common argument against Linux is the lack of software. That is just a myth. There are replacements/equivalents for every imaginable type of software. The only problem you might encounter is when you need a very specific feature that only one software product has or need a special format. Note that "special format" typically means propriatary, as you can bet that Linux supports all open standards.

For a list of replacements/equivalents, check out these two places:

  • Linux software equivalent to Windows software
  • The table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux.

    Hi! Thanks for the explanation. I've been using Windows since I had my first computer and my main concern about using Linux was software compatibility. I think that was an issue 5 years ago, but now most of the companies are always launching versions for both Windows and Linux. Maybe I should give it a try.
