7 reasons I choose Linux over Windows 7

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

Alcatel built a 17-inch Android tablet for your kitchen

Alcatel wants its new 17.3-inch Xess tablet to be a multipurpose hub for the family, providing recipes in the kitchen, films in the living room, and a digital whiteboard for to-do lists and upcoming events. However, the severely underpowered Android device doesn't seem to be capable of entertaining even a single individual, let alone a whole household. The device has a fine 1920 x 1080 display, but an unspecified 1.5 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM mean that even swiping through pages of apps becomes a chore as icons are dragged slowly across the screen. Alcatel has stressed that the Xess is still a prototype at this stage, but it's in need of some serious upgrades. Read more
