Reasons to use Linux

  • Linux helps you get rid of viruses, worms, and other computer infections.
  • Linux is fast and will stay fast
  • Linux is easier to use than Windows. Using the Terminal is not necessary in most cases.
  • Linux is free . Cost does NOT define the value of Free Software!

Thousands of Windows-only applications (even Photoshop CS3) and games work with Linux through WINE just as fast. You can also find good alternative open source software.

  • Linux looks better than Windows Vista or Mac OS X

You can make Linux look exactly like any OS in under 15 minutes.

  • Linux is fun
  • You can help improve Linux
  • Linux makes you give your computer a name

It’s possible on every OS, basically, but Linux demands you do it! Sheer coolness.
