It is a proprietary os, it doesn't contain source code. We have to pay cost for the original os.

The password of linux can't be cracked because it uses DSA/RSA/Hashed algorithm.
The password of Windows can be broken because it uses Encryption algo which can be decrypted because it uses specific sybols for specific characters/numbers, unlike Linux

anyway LINUX, is a free OS everything is free the source code and you are free to modify it at your own convenience unlike Windows which is not. but fortunately windows offers a more user friendly approach than linux which is for advance users only. I dont agree that linux is more secured than microsoft. all OS are vulnerable to hackers unless the OS itself is written by a computer (: which is unfortunately not but we are the one who programmed it thats why its us who could break it right? windows monopolize the market in terms of OS that's why most hackers try to break it than LINUX OS. so someday if linux will be monopolizing the market expect that they will be vulnerable to hackers too. hehehe that's all folks
