Linux is the preferred choice of OS over Windows, amongst programmers and developers. Linux is free and can be downloaded and customized as per a user’s needs. It is an open-source operating system, which is highly robust and adaptable. Another advantage of Linux is the immense number of libraries and utilities it carries. Besides the reasons mentioned above, there are other key aspects of Linux which make it a popular choice in the server market. To begin with, Linux is cost-effective, technically superior, and more secure in nature. Also, Linux’s involvement in emerging cloud infrastructure is a reason for its growth.
