Yes, it is more robust, otherwise it would not be the choice of over 90% of servers.

And what about Windows? You want to update? Do not forget to reboot. You want Windows? Do not forget to buy the newest and latest hardware that will only last you for a number of years. And do not forget to buy extra disk space because Windows is Windows. And if it's games you are after, you do need lots of cash for the previously mentioned latest hardware that includes CPU, GPU, RAM and disk space. And do not forget to add some RGB lights to please your eyes and ego.

I will not get into more details, but search about the kernel differences to find out why Windows needs so much rebooting.
Indeed. I have even developed software at companies where they wanted developers to work on Windows, yet plenty of developers would at least install Cygwin to make their day to day operations easier. AND, with various companies, the company's servers were running Linux.

Well, I won't narc you out.

I have to run Android and pretend to be too stupid to learn windows because I 💕ve in the United States but I am so grateful to know the truth.

I am aware of the fact that I am an exception to the rule. I wasn't worth it.

But thank you anyway. <3
