In this video, we have explained to you that does linux need antivirus or not? Linux has gained a good name for being secure enough, and resistant to many malwares out there. Some of the popular Linux based operating systems are Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Redhat, Debian, Arch. Nevertheless, none of these operating systems by default utilize a proper antivirus guard. In popular Linux flavors like Mint and Ubuntu there is an inbuilt package which is connected with the official software repository from where applications can be downloaded to install. Since this repository is under the scrutiny of thousands of volunteers, and developers, it’s less likely it contains of malware. However, there is a risk if software is downloaded through a different source, for instance apart from downloading the software through the official repository, then it may contain a virus or some malware. Linux doesn’t necessarily need an anti-virus guard if it’s maintained properly, and software is downloaded through secure channels. So in a nutshell Linux doesn’t need an anti-virus guard, but it’s better to have anti-virus guard to make sure the security isn’t compromised.

This article is all about my journey on switching from Windows 10 to Linux Mint 20, how I got easily adapted to the Linux environment, and some resources that helped me to set up a perfect Desktop environment.
Ok, now I have decided to switch to Linux but here comes the first question. Which distro will satisfy my needs both in terms of GUI and other aspects? Linux is not something new to me since I have been working with RHEL based distros in my work for the past 4 years with the command-line.
I know RHEL based distros are good for enterprises but not for personalized desktop environments, at least that’s what I am thinking till now. So I started my research to find the distro that should be easy for me to use and at the same time should have good community support if in case I ran into some problem. Among many Linux distros, I drilled down my list to 4 flavors.

Before deciding the Distro it is necessary you formulate the list of tools/programs or packages needed and check if the distro you choose provides all those features.
For me, I use Linux for two main purposes: one is for my professional development work, writing articles, and second for my personal use like Video editing and Movies. Most of the popular software are created to be compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux like Sublime Text, VSCode, VLC Media Player, Firefox/Chromium browser. Other than these software, cloud-based services make our life easy Like Microsoft Office 365 or G Suite.
