Although there are plenty of convincing reasons for why Linux is the better operating systems, here are the top ten reasons to consider:
Linux is no cost to you, so any upgrade or new version of the operating system is free of charge and applications, such as office suites, graphics editors are free and preloaded.
Linux is not resistant to viruses, spyware, worms or malware that infect computers, but designed with significantly high protection and security.
Linux is very easy to use, no need to be an avid computer user, programmer or techie to maneuver through Linux.
Unlike Windows, Linux has updates every six to nine months, so if you are not fond of a new feature, skip it and wait for the next version.
As a multi-user operating system, each user can personal their configuration on one computer. This may include the desktop look, icon display or start programs.
Linux has the capability to run on any platform, from cell phones to computers.
Linux operates well with other systems, it will install successfully alongside Windows and Mac OS X.
Linux is developed and shared with vendors, which makes you part of a community and not a customer to a manufacture.
Each base Linux distribution includes thousands of application programs.
Since Linux follows open standards, an update to one system does not make another system obsolete.
