I have a partition on my hard drive with some form of Linux installed... Never used it, still needs the final set up haha, I never have the time, or effort really to get to familiarise myself with it, especially when my day job is fixing stupid fecking peoples computers...
I can sympathise with that lol.... Only small things to be said for Linux are :
a) Its bullet proof in a way that windows isn't.
b )All kinds of amazingly good shit is available foc (except Blender which is pile of xxxx).
c) Its faster (particularly if you're running the EL/OL client)
d) Windows virtual machines run faster under Linux even than under Windows
e) Much wider range of compilers and ide's (try running lisp, forth, modula2, prolog, cobol, fortran etc etc under windows)
f) Ability to develop cross platform code (try doing that in windows or mac).
g) Linux is written in strict standard compliant C, rather than MS's shittily horrific non-compliant C++ (omfg)
h) Linux embraces all coding paradigms from oop, top-down, procedural, functional, as well as 'quick and dirty'. Windows only has Studio (omfg)
i) The internet runs on linux. For that matter, so do the majority of mobile phones, tablets and pretty much everything bar crappy corporate desktops
j) 98% of the worlds super computers run Linux.
k) Geek women will want your sperm.
l) Even attractive geek women will want your sperm.
m) By propagating your sperm across the widest number of geek women your genes will ultimately attain immortality
n) Your many children will be blessed with blond hair and will not have crooked rotten teeth (like windows users)
o) They will toil fruitfully at the coal face of capitalism which, will allow you and your favourite concubine to retire to a Greek Island of your choice (not Zante as that is full of chavs).
p) Together, you will turn Greece into an economic powerhouse and release the World from its slavedom to the United States of Bushmerica.
As can be seen, many good things happen if you use Linux. However, nothing good ever came of using Windows (just ask those who bought XP).
