Top 10 Reasons To Use Linux

From another blog that I found here

10. Only seen when you update the kernel, not for your “Must Have” security updates. “You have successfully updated your computer, please reboot for the changes to take affect.”

9. The Shell.

8. Your application freezes X server, ctl-alt-f2 login to shell and kill hung processes.

7. No email macro viruses.

6. Xgl + Gnome.

5. Your friends stop asking you to fix their computers after you install Linux on their PCs.

4. No IE.

3. You no longer have to fill the coffers of the richest man in the world.

2. Freedom.

1. Uber-Geekdom, at last!

You forgot "more sex than you'll ever want". Actually, I'm seriously going to give Linux a try for my next machine. Do not want Vista.

I am sure that Vista will have its perks once it is finally really ready for the market, but for now it is just not worth it from a production standpoint. Not to mention that I am not about to shell out 200 bones for an OS that has to run on a system that cost me 900.

I run my Linux on machines that I picked up at garage sales and other older items and it does me quite well.

Since you are already familiar with Unix through Mac it shouldn't be that much of a change for you. I, however, came into it from nothing so I'm still learning.

Penguin Power!
