A lot of workstations and servers will always have the choice of selecting which operating system to used. Without question, Microsoft’s Windows Server Operating Systems is the first thing in mind to be used although Linux has had its share of being the best alternative operating system today.
The deal here would be efficiency and reliability. This is just the backend of most systems and the choice for which operating system to use would all depend on the programming language and database compatibility with regards to OS preference.
There has been a number of programming softwares that are developed and used today. For each one, like Sybase and Visual Basic, software developing companies have gone to the extent of even making special compatibility towards preferred OS of end-users. This serves as a basis for comparison in determining on which platform that preferred programming software would be entirely performing better. This allows flexibility for users and a wider array of possibilities for systems administrators and developers who compile useful executable programs today.
