Freedom to Choose

| It is always good to have alternative for 
| practical reasons among many factors which 
| serve as basis for the move or choice. 
| Stability, flexibility, easy of use, level of 
| security, efficiency, lower cost are my 
| personal basis when i have to choose between 
| something.   Specially when the quality, degree 
| of it's delivery are the same or when the 
| difference are hardly noticeable.



How to Run Multiple Linux Distros Without Virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| Before we get started, it would be a good idea to go over exactly what weâre
| doing and how it all works. When you start up your Linux computer, you go
| through a series of steps to boot up. GRUB, your bootloader, loads the kernel
| thatâs specified in GRUBâs config file, attaches it to your root partition,
| and runs the init scripts stored there. From then on, your system is running
| from within that root partition.


Life is about choice, computing should be too.

| Having a choice of Linux distributions to choose from is a good thing. It
| means that people have a chance to find a distribution which best suits their
| wanted computing experience. Having only a single operating system to choose
| from means that everybody is forced into that systems framework. Not unlike
| the ancient times when all ladies were forced into a constricting corset.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
