Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

Windows 7 is all set to release on October 22nd 2009.This latest installation in the Windows series from the Redmond giant is touted as their best so far.People are going crazy over Windows 7 like Microsoft has invented some kind of time travel device.I do not want to disagree with the “fact” that Windows 7 is the best Windows ever but I want to point out that Linux is a 7 hundred times better than Windows 7 and there are some quality Linux distributions releasing around that time which are definitely worth a try.In this post,I just want to show why one should prefer Linux over Windows 7 this October,in fact right now.Here are my 7 reasons for choosing Linux over Windows 7.

1)Windows is not the only one in October,plus there is November rain.

Many have marked the 22nd of October on their calendars,but they seem to have forgotten the presence of the penguin.Mind you my friend the penguin is everywhere.Here are some of the Linux distributions releasing around that date

Ubuntu Karmic : October 29th

Fedora 12 : November 3rd

OpenSuse 11.2 : November 12th

2)I have a strong aversion to faulty default applications

That, and the fact that things haven't calmed down since last week's eight Release Candidate, which was supposed to be the last for the upcoming series.

Review: Ubuntu MATE 17.10

Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is a solid release with a few minor caveats about the Mutiny layout. The Traditional MATE layout is very nice, but Mutiny still needs some work. For users who want the classic GNOME 2 look-and-feel, Ubuntu MATE is an excellent choice. However, Unity users looking for a Unity-like experience should still give Ubuntu MATE with the Mutiny layout a try, but need to be aware that it does have some issues and it won't work exactly like Unity. The Contemporary layout is also an option for Unity users, but is even further removed from the Unity experience than Mutiny is. Read more
