Top Ten Reasons for a Linux Laptop

Filed under
Humor

In a bit of off the cuff humor, I've created another Linux Top Ten Countdown. It's nowhere near as funny without a drum roll, so perhaps you may wish to download and listen to one while reading the list.

As your colleague begins salivating about the many Vista features (read that as “bugs”), stop him cold by declaring, “I’m installing Linux.” You’ll have him running outside, yanking his hair and screaming expletives. The sight alone should be well worth it.

As a salesman tries to convince you to pay for upgrades, simply smile and walk away. The power of Linux and a vast array of Open Source Software is available to you for free.
