Linux Some people hate the idea of adding proprietary software to their desktop Linux. For these people, there are Linux distributions such as gNewSense that use only free software. For the rest of us, who use distributions such as Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu, there are times we either want to, or feel forced to, add proprietary programs such as Adobe Flash or Skype or the ability to play proprietary audio and video formats such as MP3 or commercial DVDs to your Linux desktop. Here's how to do it.

I'm sure Metasploit runs great on Windows but I'll stick with the fully native Linux based install. Apache runs on Windows; great but still not like Apache on native *nix.

Microsoft and Apple's history for addressing bugs and vulnerabilities is another strong case for migrating to other platforms even though the major OSS applications are all intentionally written to run across multiple platforms.
