Linux is a better choice for Programmers March 19, 2007

Posted by Binny V A in Digg Links.

Linux is better for programmers because it installs most things that are needed by programmers like –
Languages – Perl,PHP,Python,Ruby, Tcl – you name it, most distros have it installed by default.
Editors – Linux has many great editor – again, installed by default.
Tools – Software like FTP tools, Version control(SVN,CVS) etc are very important to programmers – again those are installed by default.

Another great plus point is that the source code of the OS is available – and there is no better way of learning a system than looking at the code of others. So it helps programmers to learn new things as well.

There are many other factors as well – like a powerful console, transparent working, community etc. but these are the main points why Linux is a better choice for programmers.
