Hosting and security experts are debating whether to invest in Linux, saying that it’s the easiest operating system to learn, use and manage, but that it can also be more difficult to maintain.
This is according to a new study, which claims that Linux users who have tried other operating systems are more likely to run into security vulnerabilities.
The researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, University of Texas at Austin and the University of Washington conducted a survey of over 1,200 respondents and found that Linux was the most popular operating system for home use, and the most frequently used for office use.
The study, called “The Linux Desktop and Linux Users,” looked at data collected over four years and found it found that over 85 percent of respondents said that they use Linux for desktop work, while nearly 90 percent of users said they use it for home work.
The report also found that those who use Linux to do home work were more likely than others to use the operating system in the home than in their offices.
A total of 1,739 respondents participated in the survey, and of those, 2,064 were using Linux as their primary operating system.
They found that only 6 percent of those surveyed were using a desktop operating system as their main operating system, and that they were more apt to use a mobile phone as their default operating system over their laptop.
“There’s a lot of excitement around Linux and I think this is great news for the desktop and mobile, but it’s not for everyone,” said Daniel Hsieh, the principal researcher of the study.
“We see that Linux is not only for home, but for people who are at home, too.”
Hsiep said that he had expected to see a higher number of people using Linux in offices, but found that the results of the survey were “really quite different.”
“What’s surprising is the difference between people who work in offices versus those who don’t work in a corporate environment,” Hsieg said.
“I’m not a fan of having too many users running Linux at home.
I would have expected that more people would be running Linux as a desktop, but I was surprised at how many people use Linux as an office.”
He added that Linux as the default operating environment for a lot more than home users.
“People who use it as a home operating system are actually the ones using it in their home office,” he said.
The results of this study were published in the International Journal of Information Technology and Communications in June, which is a quarterly publication of the International Association for Information Technology (IAIT).
The study was conducted with the help of a research partnership with Carnegie Mellon’s Media Lab.
The data was collected between June 1 and June 15, 2016, and involved interviews with over 1.4 million respondents in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia and the United Kingdom.
The research team also gathered data from a survey conducted by the University Of Texas at Dallas, which was also conducted in 2016.
