Today, I want to write about the 10 reasons any web developer and programmer should choose Linux as the main Operating System.
Without further ado, let's begin by listing all the 10 reasons:
Linux is opensource and it can be very customizable and there are a lot of communities no matter what distribution of Linux we choose.
Linux takes security very seriously and there are a lot of opensource solution to help us defend ourself and investigate if a problem arises.
Linux doesn't need to defragment the hard drives and it is reported to be more stable for a longer period of time.
Updates are customizable and we can install only what we need and ignore the rest. Also in the updates, the programs and apps we use are included. So one click and all the system get updated, along with the apps and programs.
There a lot of alternatives to any paid software that is available on other Operating systems.
Linux is used in a lot of servers worldwide(I couldn't find a reliable source, but I would say that 90%-97% of servers today, use a Linux distro to power them)
Linux provides an excellent start for someone that likes customization and allows us to look under the hood and remove or add what we need or like.
Linux can be easily automated and the administration can be done remotely.
Even Android that is a very popular OS for tablets and phones uses a Linux based Operating System.
Linux can help you run old computers that don't run very well on other operating systems.
