Why Linux is better (than windows) ?8 Feb 2008
I have been using computer since 1993, when i’m in high school. First time i used PC-DOS as my ‘Operating System’, then i change into MS-DOS, then Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98,Redhat6,Mandrake7, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Fedora 6, Fedora 7, and then now, i use Fedora 8 as my Desktop and Server in my lovely Travelmate.
i’veused. But why then i use Linux based as my Desktop ?
It’s all begun when finally i have a new branded notebook, called it Acer Travelmate 3250 with Centrino Core Duo system and 1 GB of RAM from my client, in the middle of year 2006. Then i tried install MS Windows XP for first time, but then i changeintoFedora6 in December 2006.
And now i know why linux is better than windows, exspecially when i read an article from internet, that tell all about the better think of LinuxthanWindows,heretheyarethe reasons : (clickonthetitletoreadtheexplanation - will be open in new window)
