Linux is actually a kernel. If we want to turn it into a suite, Linux operating systems such as debian/ubuntu/... And other platforms will be subsets of it. Linux is generally an open source operating system. You can log in to the folder in Windows with 2 clicks and as you know Windows has a graphical environment but in Linux you need to write a series of code in the Linux terminal to get into the folder. That is, you want to enter the X folder in Linux you have to do this by writing the command and then if you want to see the contents inside that folder with another command you have to do it and ... And.... you may find it hard at first glance , but it is not . You are dealing with a graphical environment in Windows where you can make changes to the mouse, but linux you don't need a mouse and you just need to work with the keyboard screen and write the necessary commands with Linux. See screenshot below (screenshot from Linux environment).
Does Linux have a graphical environment?
Normally, there is no graphical environment in Linux, but it is possible to convert linux software such as Windows into a graphical environment and a more easy interface. But by doing so, you still need a Linux terminal. why? (Reason: In Linux you need to write a series of commands to install the software / You need to write commands to remove that software / And you also need to write 1000 different commands per day to make any changes and daily tasks on Linux)
Why is it better to build bulky game servers on Linux?
As we said, Linux is an open source and Linux operating systems have a light volume. In short Windows will occupy 20 GB of hard drive space for your content but Linux will only occupy 1 GB of your hard drive space. You in Windows after running any software and closing it chache software will sit on your system Ram and a little bit of Ram will occupy you after you exit that software again. Now you have 50 software with 50 different chache to calculate . . . but linux . You will not be occupied on Linux after leaving any software any amount of Ram by that software. Normally Windows 100 MB of RAM will take you and occupy it, but in Linux this amount will be reduced to 5 MB. That's why bulky game servers in Linux can be managed better without creating logs and ... for game server .
Linux and its developers:
Linux is not a product of a particular country. A lot of people around the world are working on it and developing it. The number of programmers working on different parts of the Linux operating system reaches about 400,000, while microsoft's total number of programmers is less than 10,000. The same identifies the difference in the quality of work. You are free with Linux operating system. You don't need to use proprietary software and subjugate them.
The Windows operating system has many security bugs that are not easily discovered and are discovered when irreparable damage from the attack occurs through those security weaknesses that we are witnessing. It can be claimed that there is almost no virus for Linux and this is while more than 1000 different viruses and worms are created annually for the Windows operating system. This is not due to the lack of widespread Linux (about 70% of the world's web sites are running on Linux operating system and Apache web server) but because of the numerous Windows security holes and Microsoft's monopoly policy.
The variety of choices, due to the freeness of the Linux operating system, any group or business, has published a specific version of it, known as distribution. These different distributions are all Linux, but each is usually used for one or more specific things, such as servers, firewalls, desktops, etc. They are designed and each offers its own features and optimizations to users. Users, meanwhile, have a lot of choice and can choose something that completely meets their needs.
Linux is a professional operating system. That is, a completely non-technical user may have trouble managing it and making some hardware settings and can't do it easily. Of course, some Linux distributions make these things very convenient (and even easier than Windows), but in general, Linux is a professional operating system that, while simplicity, has a lot of technical complexity. Of course, not all users need to know these things.
And finally I have to say if you have a graphical and easy environment you want to use the same Windows or mac.i hope be good luck
