Linux vs. Windows (Couple Questions)

#1. Why do you think they are similar in some aspects and different in others? What problems might arise if you are writing scripts for both operating systems?

#2. Is Linux primarily a command line driven operating system or a GUI driven opertaing system? What are the different types of users on a Linux system? How do the hardware and software interact in a Linux system? What is the purpose of a shell? Select one Linux shell command and describe how to use it.

First, it's Linux...

Honestly, your post feels like a troll, but I'll bite.

They're similar because <edited>

The purpose of the shell is <edited>

The hardware and software interact <edited>

P.S.-- I see you corrected the subject from Linxus to its proper Linux name.
AtmoHawk03 (post below this one) good catch! Content removed.

Actually, this looks a lot like a homework question. From what I understand, asking homework questions is discouraged in this forum.

LOL, yes, definitely homework. So let's point the OP to distrowatch com, more particularly to its download section.
