Oh my f*ckign god.
Linux and Windows NT are not only different. I nthe software world, they're basically opposites!
Linux is built on the Unix kernel, it's nothing then a command line operatisg system running a graphic interface.
Windows 2000/XP use nearly the same kernal, the NT5.xxx kernal. But when it comes to graphical performence, i think the XP kernel outskills the older 2000 kernal.
So Linux has nothing similar in the way it's kernel works compared with Windows.(ofc some parts are ripped from each other)
