Running Head: NETW240 Week 6 Course Project3Operating System ProposalI.Introductiona.PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast Linux server and Linuxworkstation OS products between three separate and distinct Linux distros. In myresearch of a number of Linux vendors I found that there are three that, in myopinion, offer the best options for the current business needs. There are plenty ofother Linux distributions that could fulfil a lot of our business needs, and some ofthem require a vast knowledge of programing in order to get the most out of them. Ifound that the following three are the closest to an all-in-one solution that anybusiness can get. Naturally, some modifications will be needed in order to tailor themto the companies needs but rest assured that any of these 3 operating systems willperform great as soon as you pull them out of the box.b.Description and BackgroundThere are a number of Linux vendors that I have found to offer the best options forthe current business needs. Some of them require a vast knowledge of programmingin order to get the most out of them. I found that the following three vendors are theclosest to an all-in-one solution that any business should have. These 3 distributionsthat I will discuss, offer reliable and professional-grade support and all have frequentupdates to ensure that security exploits are addressed in a timely manner. Also, theyall have at least some level of corporate connectivity baked in. In addition, all of themcan run Windows programs through virtual machines or subsystems such as Wine.

Linux is often viewed as more secure too. (Taylor, 2018).There’s a big cost difference between deploying Linux and Windows: Linux itself isfree, so it’s the distributor’s support that you’ll pay for.II.Discussiona.Red Hat LinuxIII.RED HAT SummaryDistributionRed Hat Linux Enterprise EditionHome PageMailing ListsDocumentationMirrorsBug TrackerKey Points:Total Cost of Ownership:The cost of Red Hat varies, and it naturally depends on several factors, such as the
