DOWNLOADS! Windows Greatest Strength Is Also Its Greatest Weakness!

Post by AlanT on Mon Oct 10, 2016 8:52 am

Arguably Window's greatest strength is it's ability to have what ever you download immediately usable by the system. This is exactly what makes it vulnerable to viruses, secret infestations, spyware and other forms of malware!

In Linux there are only very specific ways to get a binary to work! Some Windows binaries and most DOS binaries will work in Wine and DOSBOX. You can download source code and install from source (if you know how) or (preferably) you can use your distro's software manager. These are tried and true.

Because ChaletOS is based around Ubuntu there are at this count 53,599 packages that you can download and install. Don't get frustrated and download from just anywhere it wont work. Ask if you need help installing something.

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.
