Things you can do using Linux, but impossible on Windows

Posted 04-23-2009 at 03:07 PM by Murdock1979

Here is a compiled list from a LinuxQuestion posting (will be update accordingly):

6. Surf the internet, download files, pick up email without fear of the computer becoming infected with viruses, malware, etc. Linux - yes. Windows - it is possible to run as limited user which can limit malmare, but from my experience, it is difficult to use a Windows system as a limited user, and most people probably don't.

5. Ressurect old computer and use it as firewall, server, etc....

Thank you, I'll give that a shot and report back
