FEATURES

WINDOWS 2000:

GUI based desktop OS-Microsoft bannered.

  • both single user multitasking and multi-user multitasking

  • Supports SMPs,threads,IPCs etc.,

  • concurrency mechanisms-mutex, semaphores etc.,

  • Scheduling-priority driven preemptive round robin within a priority level

    LINUX:

    Linus Torvalds announced his work first on Aug. 5 1991.

  • considered a full featured Unix system running on a variety of platforms.

  • Scheduling- traditional Unix scheduling with two new classes.



Performance given below are some of the performance criterion comparisons
PERFORMANCEgiven below are some of the performance criterion comparisons


Performance continues
PERFORMANCE continues

Performance

-depends on the appln.

-each OS has its own merits its own merits which depend on the appln.


Security
SECURITY

  • Windows 2000:

    • developed as a desktop OS

    • security pervades the entire system.

    • vulnerable to e-mail attacks.

  • Linux:

    • Good networking OS

    • ‘Root’ alone has the access right to touch the system programs.hence system suffers no difficulty.

    • separate user account creation specifically for running email attachments can isolate the account and so, no virus or a trojan can attack.


Security1
SECURITY

  • Standard installation wise-

  • -Windows 2000 looks better.

    • Kerberos protocol for simple user authentication and access control in the network.

    • EFS(Encrypted File System)- contained in NTFS 5.0 Windows 2000 file system as a standard solution.

  • -Linux needs additional installation efforts for all these.

  • Windows 2000 provides simple PKI(public key interface).

  • but even with all these things…

  • Windows looks inferior to Linux in security.

  • No Linux system has sofar reported any crash.


  • Conclusion
    CONCLUSION

    • -Comparisons dealt, though didn’t give the total picture,may give a vision of the features.

    • -its always the application and the user- the two deciding factors of choosing a OS.

    • Many companies use a combination.

    • So, Better to have an application specific usage
