Thread: Why do I use LINUX?

  1. #1

    Default Why do I use LINUX?

    I like my OpenSUSE!
    I like it because it is free. Not in the sense of "I cant afford a couple of bucks for something else" , rather in the sense of "Air is free, Water is free, sunshine is free, the books I get at the library are free, free love, the best things in life are free"

    OK, Im a bit of a hippy at heart.

    And I like the community!
    You guys are great!*


    *I swear Ive never had the urge to say something like this to "the corporation."


    why do you guys (and gals!?) use LINUX?

    I use Linux because I don't like avoidable crashes and poorly managed hardware. Linux (many distro's) are far more stable than another well known culprit. While Linux does have it's share of hardware specific issues, I can usually live with the alternate buggy, crashy OS while I wait for Linux to come up to speed. When Linux supports a piece of hardware it handles it well. The same can not be said of the other culprit.

    And yes I like openSUSE, I like it being free only because I have bought the paid OS and didn't get even a quarter of the stability and features and apps that I get under Linux.

    How do you contribute to Novell for this wonderful, "free" software?
