Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

What can Linux on the desktop do for me, that a properly-configured XP install won't?

Cost less and not treat you as a pirate by default, for starters.

Agreed, beside that, you can get rid of the resource hungry antivirus and antispyware scanners and think of working with multiple visual desktops. Once your used tho that, you'll miss it on a DE that doesn't support it.

Thanks to all who modded down my honest question to a -3. Perhaps what I've heard about most desktop linux users is true (blind hatred for MS, elitist bigots, etc.)?

At lm2mst and diogob attempted to answer my question.

lm2mst and diogo, which 'distrobutions' do you suggest i try.

Those who modded me down can ... do whatever continues to make you feel powerful, while sitting behind your computer screens.
