Switching to Linux: One man's personal experience

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux boots up faster than Windows and has a 
| snappy feel. With Ubuntu on my notebook, for 
| instance, double clicking a 1 mb Word 
| document takes 15 seconds to start Open 
| Office and open the document. Using 
| Microsoft Word in Vista takes 50 seconds. In 
| both systems the task is much faster when 
| run a second time, possibly due to caching - 
| two seconds for Linux and six for Vista.
| No OS is perfect, but I've found Linux to be 
| fast, stable, and secure. While I still use 
| Windows for a few specific programs, Linux 
| offers greater peace of mind in everyday use 
| - especially when online.


Get a Linux desktop to make Windows and OS X users weep with envy

| Good looks was never supposed to be a 
| priority for Linux apps. It wasn't so long 
| ago that we seemed to be struggling to get 
| even basic eye-candy such as anti-aliased 
| fonts to work on the Linux desktop, but 
| things have changed almost beyond 
| recognition.
| It's now fair to say that the Linux desktop 
| is at the forefront of visual effect, a 
| cornucopia of eye-candy overflowing on to 
| your desktop. And with a few tweaks, it can 
| look even better.

| As you can, we can save lots of money in the 
| basics by taking the Linux route, versus the 
| mainstream-friendly Windows path.
| Grand total for a full-featured operating 
| system, and robust office-suite:
| Windows = $349.94
| Linux   = $0.00

| A new email client unveiled by Mozilla this

| the French military, which decided the open
| source product was more secure than Microsoft's
