Don’t be afraid of linux

Linux is free powerful, robust and any and everyone should be considering. It gives you the chance to explore computing in a way thats impossbile with windows or mac.

Linux is actually a very adaptable, flexible and powerful operating system – and it doesn’t cost you a penny either. Sure, it’s not really that popular – in August 2012 (the latest month for which I could find reliable statistics), Linux on the desktop only took a pitiful 5.0% of the total operating system share, but its technology powers much more, for example servers and Unix (which Linux is based on), has also found its way into other products such as OS X and iOS (which are based on BSD which is, in turn, based on Unix).

Why you should be scared of linux. This is a overview, I have used it daily for the last 10 years now and I don’t miss windows at all, matter of fact, I’ve forgotten all of the issues that plague windows users, such as anti-virus, malware, poor window performance, the need for increasingly powerful hardware oh and the cost of the latest greatest.

with that being said, give it a shot, it can’t hurt.
