Im not sure how popular this thread will be but, I do have some experience working with Linux. The "Slackware" distro to be exact.

Hopefully this thread can be used to educate people on the uses and benefits of working with an open source OS.

More to come ..... stay tuned .... and feel free to contribute.

My dad sent me a copy of Red Hat once. I played around with it for a bit. I liked it, but ended up just going back to Windows.

Yeah I know...

When I build my own PC, i'm gonna throw Linux on that joint, just to get use to it.

We work with it a lot at school though.....all the IT teachers adore it.

10 Good Reasons to Use Linux


Since its introduction in 1991, Linux has grown to become a much appreciated operating system capable of solving daily tasks for users in many areas. Here are several reasons why Linux may be right for you:

1. Open Source
All source code is freely accessible; there are no secrets, no proprietary ties, no license fees. See The Open Source Page.

2. Fast
Linux is fast, and will run on lesser hardware than many other modern operating systems. Your old 486 can do something useful again with Linux.

3. Stable
Linux is stable. It normally doesn't crash. A Linux server can be up for hundreds of days.

4. Transparent
With Linux, you can always find out what the system is doing, and why. All configuration files are in plain text. Linux will do what you ask it for, no more, no less. It doesn't do magic stuff behind your back.

5. In rapid development
Linux develops from day to day. Often you can get bugfixes within a few days from when the bug was reported. You can, however, also choose to run a stable version and only upgrade when security problems are found, or when a major release takes place.

6. Many programs
There is a great amount of software available for Linux, for free download on the Internet. Furthermore a wide variety of commercial software is available if your needs aren't satisifed by the free software.

7. True Multi-Tasking
Linux provides the ability to run more than one program at the same time. Linux also supports multiple processors as standard.

8. Born on the Internet
Linux has been network enabled since the very beginning. Networking and Internet tools are built into the system. Linux is the leading operating system for Internet servers.

9. X-Window System
Linux comes with an excellent window system called X, as well as several Window Managers where you can set up your preferred look & feel, virtual desktops, window behaviour etc.

10. From super computer to handheld
Linux can be used on a wide range of computers, for a wide range of purposes. It can be used as a webserver or file server, a firewall, a desktop computer, in a cluster of PC's making a super computer for scientific calculations. It can run on Sun Sparc, MIPS and Alpha processors, PowerPC, handhelds and much more. Linux has even been ported to a wrist watch!
