Every operating system has pros and cons. This is an impartial guide to both Windows and Linux, and contains a summary of both.
This article is part of the impartial Linux vs Windows series.
One of the main differences between Linux and Windows, is the command line usage.

Tip:- This post is part of the series the Complete Guide to the OSI Model.
In getting from A to B, a packet may be routed through several networks. The Data Link Layer is responsible for establishing each link.
The data link layer is the second layer from the bottom in the OSI Model. The OSI Model details computer networking from start to finish. The Data Link Layer receives a packet from the Network Layer and sends a frame to the Physical Layer for signalling. The data link layer does several things. It holds a link between two points, this is what makes it important; it will enable us to maintain a point-to-point link between two devices. This “point-to-point” link may not be the packet sender to the packet recipient, multiple point-to-point links may (and quite often do) need to be established.
