You'd be advised to try Linux for yourself, before deciding it's a good thing.Allen said:My brother gave up a long time ago and converted to Linux and I never
really understood why until now.
(Your brother is probably suffering in silence.)
Linux is different, not better.
I know, because I use both. And I actively encourage people to try it,
just so they can see what it's like.
I try to run Linux on less powerful hardware, and that's when you
see more of the rough edges and bad decisions. If you have a
quad core 3GHz machine, maybe you don't notice some of those issues.
And maintenance on Linux, is steady. You do some, every day.
