10 Things Linux Does Better Than Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| In the computer hardware world, certain 
| segments are saturated with choice, while 
| others are not. Take graphics cards for 
| example. For the most part, it's AMD (ATI) vs. 
| NVIDIA. For CPU's, AMD vs. Intel. For CPU 
| coolers... ugh, where to begin. We'd need at 
| least a billion "vs." for that one! Then there 
| are operating systems, where like GPU's and 
| CPU's, the choices of major vendor are slim.


Why I use what I use (software) 

,----[ Quote ]
| As you can see, my setup is driven by 
| conservative needs, which is why you'll never 
| see me overclock, pour liquid Nitrogen onto 
| the CPU, flash my BIOS (sounds naughty), or 
| run the latest bleeding edge alpha releases.



Suddenly a Vista-phonic Moment

,----[ Quote ]
| I dumped Vista and put Ubuntu 9.04 and later
| 9.1 on the exact same DELL with NO hardware
| changes and it has never even hiccuped once.
| It has run without ANY failures and only has
| required one reboot (outside of new kernel
| installs)in the year since I installed Ubuntu
| 9.04.


GNU/Linux Security: Linux House vs Microsoft House

,----[ Quote ]
| How is GNU/Linux different? A GNU/Linux desktop
| system is designed from the ground up along the
| Unix model of multiple tasks with multiple
| users among multiple computers on a network. I
| will call this a many-many-many design. As such
| the basic design also includes consideration
| for securing the operating system and data on
| same when many users may have access to the
| same system simultaneously. Therefore, when a
| GNU/Linux computer is taken out of the box for
| the first time it already has a higher security
| capability. This is because of the many-many-
| many design that included consideration for
| security from the beginning.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
