[News] GNU/Linux Beats Windows in Many Ways

Hash: SHA1

Seven Ways that GNU/Linux Tops Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| 1) Choose a Desktop
| Vista has one desktop. This fact is so ingrained in Windows users that the 
| very concept of an alternative desktop is often hard for them to imagine. Yet 
| GNU/Linux offers at least a dozen. Besides the popular GNOME, KDE, and Xfce 
| desktops available in most distributions, you can also install ones like 
| LXDE, ROX, or keyboard driven ones like dwm or ratpoison.     
| [...]
| 2) Customize your desktop to the last detail
| A typical GNU/Linux distribution not only installs with a dozen themes 
| compared to Vista's default two, but allows customizations that Vista lacks 
| completely. For example, unlike Vista's taskbar, the panel on most GNU/Linux 
| desktop can be resized vertically or horizontally, or given a background 
| image. In addition, you can position elements on the panel in any order that 
| you like, or add additional panels if you choose. Going further afield, in 
| both GNOME and KDE, you can download install replacement panels.       


What Is So Good About Linux?

| Platforms. Linux is not just for Intel-based platforms: It has been ported to 
| and runs on the Power PC—including Apple computers (ppclinux), Compaq’s (née 
| Digital Equipment Corporation) Alpha-based machines, MIPS-based machines, 
| Motorola’s 68K based machines, various 64-bit systems, and IBM’s S/390. Nor 
| is Linux just for single processor machines: As of version 2.0, it runs on 
| multiple-processor machines (SMPs). It also includes an O(1) scheduler, which 
| dramatically increases scalability on SMP systems.      



They say I need Windows Vista or better, so I got Linux.
