Linux growing in popularity
Dennis Walters likes to compare a computer to a car. It needs a steering wheel, doors, brakes, seats. Most important, it needs an engine to make it go. Linux is the engine that makes Walters' computer go.
"It's terribly more stable," than Windows, said Walters, who added that he has had to reboot, or restart, his Linux program because of problems twice in the last two years. When he used Windows, he rebooted twice a day, he said.
Linux is also easily configured. Linux offers a good, inexpensive engine to base your computer on, Walters said.
