Why OS on board ?

Hi, 

 

I am new to embedded systems so please bear with me. 

 

Why should someone run embedded on ARM ? How it benefits the user ?  

 

If ARM device boots from linux, does it mean it works like windows ? I can use for example GSM modem or any new device simply by plugging and installing software ? Does it remove the effort to write messy code if you have OS on board ?  

 

Can someone give me some insight ? 

 

I appreciate. 

 

Thanks.
