This is going to be controversial, but the Windows menu, or really the whole start menu paradigm is bad. This menu is used to start and open things. It’s not a multitasking experience. So having a menu that occupies a small corner of your screen is not great.

The reality of things is that people are now just used to it. In Windows 11, the centered menu is a disaster, and once it’s open, it’s just a bad launcher. Apps are sorted chronologically, so if you don’t know the name of a program, you’re out of luck, and you can’t create any folder that you could build muscle memory upon. And there’s the case of opening multiple apps in a row.
With the windows menu, you need to open it as many times as the number of apps you want to launch. Not efficient.

The issue is, this bad menu design affects Linux desktops. Because many distributions or desktops don’t want users to run away, they mostly moved to a windows like menu.

We all know about the mismatched UI of Windows.The real problem is that people are now completely used to it. And for Linux, it means that UX, or just UI is not often considered.

Next, let’s look at how apps are installed on the system.
On Windows, while the store is progressively getting better, the main way to install a program is still to head over to its website, download an executable, and run it, then click next a few times, pick a location, and let the program install itself.

The files are stored in a single folder usually, with all the libraries the program needs, and the program itself in its own directory structure, that varies from program to program.

And this is a bad design. First, for security reasons. Storing executables and libraries and data in a single folder is a surefire way to have badly set permissions on these files.

Second, it makes finding the files you’re looking for difficult. You need to learn each program’s directory structure, and look online to find where the data is stored.

And this bad design on Windows also influences Linux desktops negatively. Because to this day, I still get people telling me it’s easier to install a program on Windows than on Linux. Seriously.

The reality is that a lot of people don’t understand how to install programs on Linux. They’re so used to downloading them manually that they try to replicate this, and get super confused.

And a lot of newcomers to Linux just don’t understand where the files a program uses live, because they’re used to having them lumped into a single directory. The better way to look at it is: what type of file am I looking to access? And then this tells you the folder where it’s been stored.

It’s no secret that system updates are dreaded by a lot of Windows users. Windows updates have always been problematic, super slow to install, they require a reboot in most cases, and they can make your system worse than it was, so it’s no wonder that many users are wary of these.

App updates are also handled separately from system updates. And people that moved from Windows to Linux will keep this fear of updates, because it’s been drilled into them again and again that updates or even worse, major version upgrades, aren’t a good thing. But they ARE.

And that negatively affects Linux desktops, because you’ll get plenty of people who don’t apply their updates and then ask for help about a bug that’s been fixed already, or who stick to insecure software that has patches available. It makes the work of maintainers and developers harder.

Linux Servers: Which Distro should you use?!

In the Linux community, there’s constant debate about which distribution is best for your desktop. However, there’s not as much discussion regarding Linux distros for your server. There are many good options for your Linux server project, and in this video Jay discusses his top 6 choices.

Milesweb 80% off Link:-http://affiliates.milesweb.com/2616.html

Topic Covered
1)What is web hosting
2)What is linux hosting
3)what is cpanel
4)what is plesk
5)Difference between Cpanel and Plesk

Domain management – add new domain names, configure and manage them.
File management – upload new files to the server, manage them, do backups and restores.
Email management – set up new email accounts, manage them, access webmail, configure spam filters, mailing lists, forwarders.
Database management – set up databases and manage them.
Stats – see the volume of traffic the server is getting.
Security – SSL certificates, SSH access, IP blockers, etc.
Software installers – easy installations of popular web scripts such as WordPress, Joomla, and others.

It’s a platform that’s more common among hosting providers and is usually cheaper for the end-user.
It allows you to set up free SSL certificates via Let’s Encrypt (AutoSSL), but you can also switch to Comodo or other certificates.
Although cPanel runs on a fewer number of operating systems overall, it supports Amazon Linux, which Plesk does not.
Great automatic backups and restorations. You can take advantage of a couple of built-in back-ups and restore mechanisms.

You can run Plesk on Windows and more than a dozen Linux distributions including versions of Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CloudLinux, and Virtuozzo Linux.
Built-in support for Docker, Git, Node.js, and WordPress Toolkit (great if you want to implement some WordPress automation and get additional management features).
Easy SSL integration with a single click. Plesk will take care of obtaining an SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt and integrating it into your sites.
WordPress users can take advantage of automatic updates, bug fixes, and patches. In other words, Plesk takes care of most of your WordPress security needs.
