thanks it doesnt seem any better or advanced than my windows me
hehehe...man,if you only knew!
Linux shouldnt be compared to windows,it isnt fair to windows
Some of the things that appeal to me
about linux is that its open source so its always being improved upon/updated and avaliable to the end user for free.It comes with more software than windows ever will and has tons more avaliable for FREE.The disadvantage to linux is its not quite as "user friendly" as windows when it comes to setting up and installing certain things.Its not really an OS that you can just figure out on your own,it takes a good bit of knowledge.More on the good side though,check into different virus's and the affected systems,you will notice that none of them affect linux.Most virus,spyware,malware etc. are aimed at windows and were probably written with a linux box
irony?I dual boot with win xp and linux mandrake 10.I use windows mainly for gaming because alot of what i enjoy playing isnt supported by linux but when it comes to image/video editing,web designing and things of that nature linux is hard to beat.The stability is unmatched,probably why most web servers run red hat and other distro's of linux.It is indeed a personal preference of which OS to choose from but once you start getting into open source you will find less of a need for windows.There's still ALOT for me to learn with it but one thing i can promise you is as soon as more games start supporting linux i will switch completely.
