    The last time I used Windows with any frequency, ME was about a month old.
    About the same time, Leo LaPorte(damn, I miss TSS) was talking a lot about Linux. I asked a friend, who was working at a dial-up isp at the time, about Linux and he gave me a set of RedHat 7.1 disks and I've been going every since.
    I have to say I'm with jaboua here. Only one reason matters to me. It's better.
    Now, with that said, given enough money, I'd have an UltraSparc, running Solaris, next to a G5, running OSX, next to my PC running Slackware(actually, MiniSlack atm).
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Because:

    1) it is more stable,
    2) it is virusfree,
    3) it is higly customisable,
    4) it has better support,
    5) it's free (to download, install, copy, etc).
    6) it's cooool

    - It is far cooler
    - It has a much better mascot
    - It owns as a programming environment
    - It's customizable
    - It's a wonderful learning experience

    Five reasons hey?

    Well, let's see...
    • - Its runs faster/doesn't suck back system resources
      - It's free (as a university student, free is always better)
      - highly customizable
      - any program you need is free (or there is a free alternative)
      - package management systems (gotta love them)

    It's a UNIX-like OS, it is free, it has a strong command line interface, it has plenty of powerful and free software available, and, as already said, it's stable.

    In contrast to Windows, the Linux internals are well-documented and available to read in form of sourcecode.

    Stability
    Speed
    Security
    Simplicity
    Power

    After using Linux for a few years, I find it much easier to use and get what I want done than Windows. Im lost without a command prompt.
