    What is your favorite thing about linux


    My favorite thing about linux is that t doesn't try to seperate the user from the console. I still think the console is the best way to perform tasks such as file organization and so on. I hate the console in windows. So I guess I'm saying BASH is awsome. What is your favorite thing about linux.

    the gui actually have good programs installed by default. Getting the notepad and the calculator during a windows install is depressing.

    It's free. Instead of paying 200 bucks for Windows I can spend 30 minutes downloading and installing and get a good learning experience.

    i like the license, KDE, the fact that it isn't microsoft (i no longer have to support his corruption) and BASH is great too (DOS sucks)

    i like that it is free and that i have so many choices on which distro i want to use and what apps i want to use. and the GPL kicks arse. i also love that i have only crashed my system once as in windows i could crash it once ever 10 mins (im exaggerating, or am i ). and also that you dont even have to use gui at all you can do everything you need to in command line mode. i use gui but i like the idea that if i wanted i could browse online chat in irc and all that with out having to use gui at all. wow there is jst so much more i love about linux but this is already getting really long
