Why to use LINUX ?

There has been a surge of renewed interest in using Linux, in both the server and desktop spaces but still most of the people are scared of using linux.
                               In a majority of other operating systems, configuring your system so that it looks, acts and feels just the way you want it to isn’t always easy. For example, in Windows, say you wanted to have a taskbar at the top of the screen, but keep the start menu and such at the bottom. From what I have been able to tell, that isn’t possible yet. However, Linux’s two main rival desktop environments, GNOME and KDE, allow you to do this. Not only that, but you can have the clock on the left, in the middle, the program menus up there… The possibilities are endless. Also, configuring how pretty much every little detail looks is quite easy, I’ve found. Title bar buttons, scrollbars, screen savers (plenty of those), mouse cursors, login screens… A very long list.

  1. The very basic thing is its Cost. It is freely available & u can download it free of cost from its individual websites. Whereas if u are preferring for windows & all, they will cost u at least 2000.00 rupees.
  2. If u are good Linux use then it is very much powerful than other OS in all aspects except GUI.
  3. The third important thing is Security; Linux is Open Source Software, while Windows is not. The simplest benefits of Open Source Code to demonstrate are increased security, reliability and functionality.
  4. Virus, This reason is always at the top of my list. We all know kids are prone to opening and installing things they shouldn’t. Because you can’t watch your children 100 percent of the time, you can’t know where they’re getting those applications or attachments from. You can make sure those machines have antivirus and anti-spyware, but why even take the chance? When your kids are using the Linux operating system, this concern becomes moot.
  5. Maintenance Cost, for companies & organizations, who use client server mechanism, they can save their maintenance cost up to 80% by switching to Linux.
  6. It Doesn't Crash, Linux has proved to be so reliable and secure that it is commonly found in dedicated firewall and router systems used by high-profile companies to secure their networks. For more than ten years, it has not been uncommon for Linux systems to run for months or years without needing a single reboot.
  7. Not Single Source Software - Linux is distributed by several companies, giving consumers to pick and choose the flavor that best suits their needs. Windows is the product of a single company, Microsoft Corporation. Windows users have no choice but to accept what Microsoft offers.                                                                                                                                        
One more good point to make here, you will end the constant late night computer assistance calls from your “buddy.” He calls because “you’re the computer pro, right?” When he telephones you next, tell him, “Sorry, I use Linux.” You’ll never hear from him again. Even better, he will now start calling someone else with Windows8 and bug them! The pleasures with Linux laptops are endless.

So howz linux? what u think?
