Windows is the most common Operating System used by most of the people. They tend to say that it is user-friendly and has a cool desktop GUI (Graphical User Interface). But I am not one of those people who is an avid fan of Windows. I believe in the so called “Linux force”, I love Linux and I’m a certified linux nyaker.
In fact, I dual booted my laptop with Ubuntu Linux 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) and Backtrack 5 R2 (Release Two). Then I also make use of my Pentium III computer which I booted with Kahel OS (Filipino Made Distro OS).
“But why do I love Linux?” many of my classmates ask me this question. But I always answer them seriously and convincingly. I always show to them that Linux pawns Windows by showing to them Compiz Fusion Effects and some good bash scripts. Because for me, that’s the best way to prove that Linux’s GUI is better than Windows. Windows 7 effects are just a copy of Open Source applications.
But seriously, the reason why I love Linux is that it is free and Open Source. Thus it can be used, freely modified, and redistributed, both commercially and non-commercially, by anyone under licenses such as the GNU General Public License. Linux has may different flavors also called as distros (distribution) which includes Ubuntu, Backbox, Busybox, Backtrack, Nodezero, Debian, Linux Mint, etc.
