Linux After reading yet another "why Linux is not ready for the desktop" article/discussion, I decided that, as someone who uses Linux exclusively at home, its about time I wrote my response to the attitudes expressed. I have been using Linux since January 1999 (Red Hat 5.2 off of a cover disc).

>If you have to chose between Windows for free or linux for
>free, what would you chose and why?

Stupid question, Windows is not free, not open, buggy, developed by a evil corp, virus magnet, backdoor enabled...
I would always choose GNU/Linux over Windows because:

1. its free/open (not money but freedom!)
2. its scaleable (risc/intel/arm/sun/)
3. its POSIX
4. its very stable
5. its virus free
6. it has tons off application that i like
7. i today hacked at least 2 supermarkt pc (so called secure...:)) running Windows 2000 with my Zaurus.
8. its not developed only by one controlling company
9. it has a very funny mascote
10. its the OS of the future
11. its what i am best in
12. i do not give a sh*t about...
13. it can do so much
14. i can make it do so much
etc..

Anyway, i do not care what you think of Linux and where it
is in your op. What i do see and know is that Linux is becoming really mainstream and big corporations are starting to pick it up everyday..food on the table....
Windows is passe. The future is bright the future is Linux

euhh...oh i get it..
