Linux is probally kissed bill gates ass because that wish they could be as good as windows . ( i ain't having a go at YOU just linux)
The visual appeal, compared to windows, is actaully much beter, there are several different desktop managers available and hundreds of different styles available for each, I don't beleieve for one second you tried them all before coming out with that.
As far as games go, no there isn't very many games for linux (yet) but most games can be played with the windows emulator (WINe). - No this isn't windows it's a windows API emulator that enables some windows programs to run under linux.
I seriously doubt any Linux fan kissed bil gates anything as most linux lovers are renound as windows haters.
And Neophase I hope you wern't taking at me, whilst my point may have appeared rude, I felt a good point was made, your principal reason for liking linux is it's free and open source.
whilst most people pirate windows anyway, (and MS claw back money from businesses) and you don't know what to do with the source I think your two princial linux loving reasons have been blown out of the water. perhaps you could come up with more reasons?
As it stands windows supports more hardware, more software.
Linux supports less hareware and less software. (even with emulation)
platform stability isn't really an issue since windows started using protected memory, and now your system is as stable as the hardware head room lets it be.
so, can anyone supply any reasons for choosing Linux over windows?
