@Manimalika Katakam Linux is more convenient and granular. Also since it being open source you can use it to modify the system to your needs. Every line of code of Linux is Open Source. And also most of the tools are made for Linux.

Now coming to your question, You cannot use Windows or any systems for Password Hacking, but you can use them for Password Cracking.

Because links has a better permissions system. Windows 10 has upgraded security but it all comes down to the magic of open source. @Naveen Sunil I think it's very difficult to crack Windows 10 password. Have you tried it?

@Mohit Patil Cracking might take some time. But some privilege escalation could actually bypass the authentication section. Earlier a CVE was patched but hoping to see one in future.

As a hacker I suggest not to use windows for hacking operations. Linux is more supportive and linux is like made for hacking. performing hacking operations on linux syatem is much easier because of the tools provided by linux. I am not saying hacking can not be done by windows. It works on windows also but you have to load a lot of external resources for that, Like browsers, integrated environment, proxy setter and many more things.

Hope it helps.
