    IMHO!

    Personally, I use Linux for political reasons. I am opposed to the way Microsoft shafts their customers. I am opposed to proprietary and incompatible protocols. And I believe that the future of the human race lies with ideas like GNU/FSF and GPL, and not with the corporately driven marketing scams that most Wintel-based computer companies subscribe to. In short, Linux is proof that revolution is possible.


    How about the fact that Linux is free? How about that fact that Linux was built around coming to places like this and asking questions and getting answers (some of the people hanging around here know more about computers than any telephone tech support person on the planet)? How about the fact that Windows viruses have no effect on Linux systems whatsoever?

    From a business angle you can say that there's a longer uptime which means that you can keep the servers on longer not to mention that if you work on the machines there will be less of a need to restart as often. There's also the fact that there's basically no viruses or spyware. This leads to less breakdowns of the systems. and that adds up to which companies like. There's the fact that most distros are free and come with everything you need for whatever needs you have. Some of these things are Open Office, Firefox, and other things depending on the individual distro. You would be saving money in the long run even if you had to train on Linux a bit it would all work out good down the road.

    UPGRADES! UPGRADES! UPGRADES! in the windows world, you upgrade and you pay, and its not realy all that neccessary or good of an upgrade. linux, upgrading is simple and free, also, there is usualy no real radical changes when you upgrade, since everything works so well already and its already customizable, there is no room for drastic changes as the linux community knows better..
    There is also manegeability, a well trained Linux user can fully manage a Linux OS and recover from almost any system error without the need to reset the computer, unlike windows which almost always seems to be the solution.

    In short: Linux is fully manageable and a whole lot less volatile.

    Peace!

    yep. madedetect po iyun. nakakabasa nang madaming Filesystem ang Linux.

    Yung distro para siyang type ng Linux. Marami kasing type ng Linux sa market, kanya kanyang developments, features, etc. for different purposes. For example bago ako sa Linux coming from Windows, most probably ang hahanapin ko interface ng Windows para hindi ako masyadong manibago sa pagmimigrate. Ang like what BlueBimmer said, Xandros 3.0 fits this bill. Yung ibang type kasi ng Linux sobrang newbie unfriendly, hehe. Nakakat*nga in short.

Why not Linux?  (WinXP + MS Office Pro cost P28,700)
