Wasn't sure where to put this as their isn't a forum for it, so this seemed like the best place
Hey. I've used Windows since I first sat at a computer (not by choice, it's just what was available to use) and I've known about Mac's and Linux for ages, but never really considered bothering with them. If I had the money, I'd def get a Mac, just because I could and we all should know, Linux is free, but theirs so many distributions out there! I've heard the name Ubuntu pop up a lot recently, and questioned my friend about it, who's a bigger geek than me and he told me it was really good. I eventually downloaded it, burnt the ISO and ran the OS from the disk instead of installing it (which is such an ace idea).
My first thought of it was that it was just another Operating System, probably not that much different from Windows, except it can do all these nifty effects. I had a good play around with it, but nothing made me go "Wow... 1337, C:\Run\Install now!" Now I haven't gone Googl'ing around the web looking for articles on why Linux is better than Windows, instead I'd rather just ask here to you guys, and ask, have you ever used, or do you have Linux on your machine and what [in your option] are the benefits of having and using it?
I'd like to "cross over" just for the sake that I can say that I've used Linux, but also to get a different experience, because as I've said, I've used Windows all my "computing" life.
