Could I do all this on l0inux bug free?
Go here and judge by yourself:

Linux is not by far bug free, not any other piece of software available ANYWHERE on this planet. I could exclude here programs small enough like hello world (but is not such a sure thing - I saw myself bugs in these kind of progs ).

And I said "by far" because I feel that any OS out there could not be bug free. Is a statistical proven fact that the bigger the project, more errors occur.

What I CAN say is that linux is far more often patched and updated than any other OS.
