== == There is no Linux 9 yet. In fact, there is no Linux 3 yet. Linux is still at major version 2.

If you meant to ask about the differencences between R-HEL 4 an R-HEL 9, please ask the question again.

What most people commonly refer to as "Linux" is actually the kernel or operating system for GNU/Linux. The operating system by itself provides amongst other things a (software) platform for programs to execute on. The reason for the "GNU" prefix relates the the utilities that form part of the user's view of the operating system. These utilites allow the creation of directories, the editing of files, deleting files, etc. These utilities are not distributed in a bundled form with the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel itself is distributed under a special license known as the GNU Public Licence (GPL) which allows people to distribute is legally, and to obtain it freely. Freely here does not refer to price, however. Many software vendors have started creating tools and bundled packages which include the Linux kernel. These vendors, such as Red Hat, or Mandrake, or SuSe, will then give their particular release a version number, such as Red Hat Linux 4, or Mandrake Linux 10.1. The difference mainly includes updated utilities, and an updated (newer) version of the Kernel itself. It is important to realise, however, that there is really no such thing as Linux 4, or Linux 9. One may see something along the Lines of Linux 2.4.26 or Linux 2.6, which is referring to the version or release of the Linux Kernel.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows file systems?

Windows uses 4 file systems: FAT, NTFS, exFAT, and ReFS. "Linux" supports dozens of file systems, there are too many to mention. The differences between them are massive and specific to the file system in question. For a proper answer you need to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_system . It is incorrect to say "the Linux file system is faster than Windows" because it's dependent on the data, and of course because there is no "Linux file system." It's incorrect to say "The Linux filesystem is more/less secure than the Windows file system" for the same reason. Drive encryption is available in both Windows and Linux. To the average user, there is no functional difference.

If there are no different versions of Linux then what is the meaning of 'Linux 4' and 'Linux 9'?

There is no "Linux 4" or "Linux 9." I'm not sure where people get these numbers from. They could be reading the version numbers of a particular distro (such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9). However, the Linux kernel is developed centrally and then subsequently used by all of the distribution vendors. The current stable version of the Linux kernel is 2.6.30; the 2.6 kernel line is expected to continue indefinitely.

Difference between pH of 4 and pH of 10?

The pH scale ranges from 0-14 pH. A substance that has a pH of 7 is considered to be "neutral," like pure water. A substance that has a pH less than 7 is said to be acidic, and a substance that has a pH greater than 7 is said to be basic. Therefore, the difference between those two pH levels is that the 4 pH substance is more acidic and the 10 pH substance is more basic. The more basic or acidic, the more caustic and/or corrosive the substance will be.


Why is the answer in subtraction called the difference?
