When must you shill for Linux?

Filed under
Linux

How many times have people accused me of “Microsoft Hater”, “Linux Zealot”, “Linux Unwashed”? Comments like these (and many more vulgar ones) are often thrown by a Microsoft advocate with no argument to any person who dares to suggest there is an alternative to their products. Its easy to dismiss a point of view with a single insult and the practice has been going on for years (and will for many more to come).

The purpose of this article is to report on a Linux distro and ask the question what would Linux users do?

I reported recently that I had been trying Elive and that due to the apparent lack of continuation of Wolvix (thats now changed) I was trying out many distro’s for my new distro of choice on the main rig. With that in mind I eagerly downloaded Elive, from the professional site and the nice trailer it had me sold on at least a download and test. And test I did. The LiveCD functioned very speedily and was a very solid, reliable piece of software.

So far so good? Well no.
