    This question comes up every week in the forum at linuxquestions.org

    Do a search for it and you'll find many many reasons tell u to try out linux, windows is bad.....etc

    BUt there really is NO NEED to switch, it's just for when you wanna learn to use a new os and learn more about you computer thats all.

    I use it for work to test scripts that I write for another higher maintenance server running HP-UX... I could be in mondo trouble for bringing down the main computer...

    I also use it as a webserver... Apache is just sweet.. I'm working on some future internal services being run off of that server eventually..

    There's just somethings you need it for and some you don't... I don't think I'll switch to it for home use anytime soon tho...

    Linux isn't used by anyone. It is so unstable compared to a superior operating system like Win ME. The only reason Unix was created was to provide Bill Gates a place where he could design Windows. Linux is just one of those Internet jokes like "All Your Base", hackers, and eBay. None of those exist either.

    I will perpetuate this myth by saying I also use Linux ;)

    I do as well. I just like learning something new. I'll probably always have a MS OS around. Hopefully I can move more towards UNIX after my VB class is over in college.

    C'mon people - it's not fair to mislead him with lies and claims "I use Linux"... Let's be honest, guys.

    It's this thing that some guy from Norway or somewhere (he's not from the US, so it doesn't matter anyways) made up and posted to usenet so he could pass his C class. It's just as real as Santa Claus and Oprah Winfrey.

    Exactly my point!

    If Oprah Winfrey's not real, Linux doesnt' exist!

    Makes perfect sense!

    Yeah... but Santa Clause is real. So take your point, shove it in a pipe, and smoke it you big turtle.
