Why do you use Linux?

* It's more suited for the job of a desktop.
* It gives me the freedom of controlling my laptop/desktop rather than being controlled!!
* I want to learn as much as I can in my life time. for that, I guess Linux is the best cos it is open source. I can learn its internals and how each and every process/program run in the machine
* I get all my programming tools free (as in freedom) and I have no restrictions to use them (In Linux, I have freedom to anything and everything. nothing is impossible in Linux)
* No viruses (more or less)
* Awesome networking tools, stealthy, uncomplicated, extensive assistance without having to scour Google search to get fixes and support. No adware/spamware browser slow-downs....granular security!
* it's fast and doesn't frequently crash
* compiz fusion is giving gr8 graphics effects
* there are some many freewares available for it.
* different, customizable and funny to use (outstanding from the crowd)

But I have prob. with it. it requires me to download large packages recurrently.

Linux = efficiency + beauty + power It is a really fantastic OS, the life is more beautiful without error messages and without virus nor unpredictable crashes, more need to format its Pc every day...

And how if we reverse the question :
Why you didn't use Linux?

or more precisely :
Why didn't you "make the choice" to use "freely" Linux?

Anyway, i think that Hanen answered very well to the question. Thx Hanen.

I use Ubuntu 8.10 because

1) It's is more stable
2) Runs faster
3) Very Secure
4) It is free and gives me more freedom than windows ever could.

Tout simplment parceque c'est bien plus facile d'installer et d'utiliser perl python et le shell sur linux.
(La même chose serait possible aussi sous windows mais ça serait une vraie galère)

Mais faut être franc les gars , le hard support reste tout de même un peu tricky sous linux.
(c'est vrai que sous windows aussi collecter les drivers "mannquants" peut s'avérer fastidieux, mais au moins on fini par faire fonctionner le hard)
