There are simply too many reasons to choose Linux and I have come to the conclusion that it is just not practical to go over them all.

Why is Linux technically so good?

You may think this is going to be another rant on Linux being so good because it is open source and free and Linus Torvalds is god and this and that but it is not going to be like that. As you may know, Linux is modelled after the Unix operating system. Instead of focusing on the philosophical side of things I am going to focus on the operating system itself. It is not however

Giving Linux the run around

Unix has become Linux, and it is running on an amazing variety of devices. New lineages of Linux have emerged.Some are highly specialized, some are more generic. I run Linux on a half dozen platforms at home. A quick google search revealed not one, but several Linux distros that will run on this unit.

Is Linux really that hard to use?

IT Toolbox

The most common complaint I am informed about regarding Linux is that it is hard to use. So I am going to compare some common tasks between Linux, windows and macos to see if Linux is really that hard to use. Personally, I find this complaint very puzzling. I will base these comparisons on a fresh install of the operating system as it comes out of the box so to speak.
