Tux Machines (TM)-specific
At the end of last year, I tried Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Two words to fully describe it; Super Duper! I seriously am looking forward the next release Linux Ubuntu 8.04.
Recently, I went to a forum entitled "Linux vs Windows". Guess what? Windows was smacked down to the ground!
Planning not to put stuffs too much in words, I'll point out several winning and losing points of Ubuntu.
1. Nothing about Linux you have to pay, unless you are planning to use it for corporate. The idea of 'free' here is not only 'zero cost', but 'freedom' for redistribution, development and alternation.
2. No need superb computer to run Linux at superb performance.
3. The environment and interface is exceptionally friendly.
