OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

The kernel is obviously the key in terms of OS performance, but user-level features tend to be found in the shell.

I always play with as many desktop interfaces as I can (at least easily) on a given platform. And enhancements if I can find them. :-)

The more types of interfaces you play with, the more experience you gain, and the easier switching between platforms becomes.
