As Linux is the third most used desktop based operating system after Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X, it has less support than Windows and mac. So if you have question why it has less support though it’s an advanced OS? There are many answers. The big factor is as Windows or Mac has big market share so all peoples are rushing to them because they get anything for those and because software developers or companies want to see which OS are mostly using. So when a person comes to use a Linux dsitro like Ubuntu he don’t get everything he wants.
