Fedora Core "Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux. But the open source operating system is facing interface challenges of its own. Part of the problem is that - after so much controversy within the Linux community - there are so many interfaces to chose from. But the new version of Fedora - a desktop focused version of Red Hat’s distribution of Linux - is offering users an easier way to choose between the many flavors of Linux GUI."

Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux.

Couldn't care less myself, honestly. I'm more concerned with keeping the freedom to install whatever operating system I want, without things like "Trusted Computing" and "Secure Boot" getting in my way. And without having to--directly or indirectly--pay some third-party mega corporation like Microsoft just for the privilege, while still getting anything less than full access to a machine I just bought.
