The most popular operating system in use today is Windows. It’s a product of the Redmond, Wash.-based company Microsoft, which makes software and hardware for your computer. Windows consists of various components and services that interact with each other and the software and hardware that you run on it. Windows is a complicated animal. It’s designed to be very flexible, so that you can easily add and remove hardware and software on your system (HajiRassouliha et al.,2018). Windows has hundreds of settings that you can adjust through its setup utility, the Windows Control Panel. There are separate settings for the operating system itself and for the various programs and settings that you run. Even if you run Windows on your PC, you don’t need to know everything about how Windows works to use it. You can have one of the millions of users on the Internet at any given time use Windows, although you’ll probably have to deal with a lot of configuration details to make that happen. You don’t have to be an expert to install and use Windows, and you can still do all your tasks. The most important Windows components include the operating system itself, the desktop that you use, and the Web browser. Windows itself runs as a service. The user can add programs that run on top of the Windows core — such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and other applications — but they don’t run within Windows. You may add programs, such as Microsoft’s Microsoft Office suite, or third-party programs, but these will not interfere with Windows in any way. The desktop is an interface through which you’ll be presented with the information you need to perform your daily tasks. Your email inbox and file manager appear in the desktop, as do most of the programs you launch. The program that you actually use, however, usually starts in the Windows Task Bar or the Start menu, which is the window that appears at the left or top of the desktop when you’re using Windows (Boettiger,2015).

Because it is the basis for so many modern computer applications, it is important to understand the advantages of Windows programming. While Windows programming is not as widely available to computer application developers as other languages, it is very easy to program in Visual Basic .NET. You can easily move all of your computer programming knowledge over to .NET without any problem, but before you do this, you need to learn Windows programming first. This article is your starting point to learn Windows programming in Visual Basic .NET. Windows is widely used because of its widespread availability, high quality, good reputation, low cost, ease of use and other reasons. The disadvantages of using Windows include that it is not easy to develop in Windows, there are many security problems and its performance is not the best. Using a different OS, especially Linux, helps in designing programs faster and easier because the developers know the OS inside out. As a whole, it will be very difficult for the developers to use Windows for all purposes and applications (Chen et al, 2019).
Linux was designed to be used. The Linux kernel is designed in such a way that it can be modified to fit into user needs. It is the most advance feature of Linux which provides ability to do more than one task at the same time. Linux can run on most of the operating systems. So, the operating system should be compatible with Linux kernel. If Linux was perfect for every application that’s been developed it would have been used by everybody in development and we wouldn’t be doing what we’re doing. But you know there is disadvantages of Linux and one of the big ones is the problem of drivers. There’s no way to put a Linux drive on your machine unless you’ve got a driver for it. And Linux drivers are mostly proprietary in terms of who makes them and what they do (Khaleel et al, 2015).
