Come and Discover Linux

What's the most compelling reason to switch to Linux?

It's low maintenance. I don't have anti-virus software because I don't use it. I don't use it because I don't need to. I don't "defrag" my hard drive because the linux file system doesn't need to be defrag'd like Windows. It is stable. The Linux operating system is used in 95% of servers in the world for a reason. There will be bugs in any computing system. So the question should be how long does it take to fix a vulnerability. In the open source world of linux, anyone can look at the code and try to fix it. The more transparent the code is the more likely that bugs would be discovered and fixed.

It's very customizable. The packages are modular. You can customize everything even the kernel. There are hundreds of distributions for every use and circumstances. You can try different desktop environments that will suit your need and personal preference. The more you go deeper into linux the more choices and options are available to you.

If you are new to linux  then congratulations. You are about to begin a voyage of discovery. You are going to find computing fun again.
