A great OS that runs the only game a true gamer would ever play (counterstrike) fine and is much more stable. If you are tired of letting microsoft own your computer and tired of the utter lack of customizability that comes with winblowz, I recommend that you give this a shot. It is simple to learn I cannot believe anyone thinks it is complicated. If you dont feel like partitioning space on your comp to try it out, get a "live cd" of linux (such as knoppix or phlak) and just boot it up and take linux for a test drive.
I switched to linux 3 years ago. CS runs much better on my customized version of linux than it ever ran on my windows OS. I am so glad I found linux! Now I am the one controlling my comp!

Linux Is Not UniX
A UNIX clone written by Linus Torvalds so people can have a UNIX-like OS which has no AT&T code for which you need to pay royalties. Known sometimes as GNU/Linux. Morons complain about compiling their software when the reason is for the software to be cross-compatible.
Linux is in NO WAY an alternative to Windows. Windows is intended as a multimedia and gaming OS and Linux is designed for server machines. They are two VERY DIFFERENT operating systems.

The OS equivalent of a hybrid car.
Steve: Have you heard about Bob? He uses Linux.
Dave: What a douchebag.

You have two cows.

The city council demands that you disect one of them and allow the town citizens to do whatever they want to it.
The town citizens use genetic modification to enhance choice organs.
They take several days to re-animate the cow, until they finally have a working zombie-cow that produces SuperMilk (similar to Popeye's spinach) but random organs stop every 10 seconds, forcing the people to disect it again just to fix it.

You live happily on your regular milk while the town struggles.
No, this Linux diatribe isn't copypasta.
I'm just as astounded as you.

What Windoze users should turn to since Windows is clearly crap, evil and bastardised in every way.
Linux runs the web (80% of all servers).
Linux is the base-station of most hackers (see 'Hackers Handbook' by Dr. K, ISBN 1-85868-943-0) because it is inherently secure.
'Yeah dude you fux0red up that poor dudes windoze box'
'Yeah man, linux r0x0rz!!!'

Linux is a monolithic kernel. Most people don't get it. They say linux would never go mainstream and "average joes" will never use it?? Then what? Does linux need. linux is not making money even if it has more users. it works for us better than other alternatives and this is the biggest thing.
Linux is great.

A free operating system, comparable to Windows.

To all of you that think that it's not compatible with anything, use the fucking program called Wine on there, it's a nice Windows emulator.
Collin: "My mac is so slow and annoying, it can't do shit"
Joe: "Get Ubuntu Linux"
Collin: "I'll try it"

1 Week later
Collin: "OMG! This is so much better than Windows or Mac!"
