  • @Frédérick Schneider Totally agree. I don't use linux much, but it has great potential for somebody else...besides me. I don't go around judging OSs, but when people post stuff like this with photos that don't even say much about his topic is just sad.

  • Pretty sure I could do this with windows. Except with a little more evidence than google images.

    10 reasons? Here are the answers to them:

    1- Linux isn't a graphical OS, any technical writer at Redhat (a Linux Distro producer --> Redhat OS / Fedora) So, a shell prompt isn't really what people download, we use distros, and since 2004, great graphical interfaces were created: Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Ubuntu KDE, Linux Mint etc...

    2- Linux cannot have a 'support' since it's an Open Source OS. It has a Community where people help out each other.

    3-Obsolete is a great word, but do you even know what it means? I guess not since it is far from describing any Linux OS.

    4-Free Software, also called Open Source software is the reason it became so popular. Why would someone pay to be able to write .doc files?

    5-If you looked in the stores that are integrated in the Distro you had tried, you would have found lots of games and everyone knew in 2009 that sooner or later, steam would develop a linux app. + Android is a Linux distro, how can someone generalise such a wrong idea about gaming in Linux without even knowing that Android, where you can find either the android store (Old phones/ tabs) and the Google Play store filled with games and apps.

    6-Quality? I tried Mac OSX, it was so simplified it became complicated and debugging problems was the hardest thing I've ever done. Windows OS? Hell no! Even though we can install any app/game we want on it, others can too! And it's filled with viruses... Linux is easier and more secure.

    7-Opening the store is pretty hard, I admit, which is why Windows and Mac OS added that option to their OSs.

    8-As I said before, Linux has graphical interfaces, it's up to you to choose a suitable one. And since you 'work at RedHat', you should know that every single OS work on a command line! But nobody forced you to use it! It is only a debugging program. Every process it launches exists in the GI.

    9-Linux distros are based on THE simplest OS I know, it is so easy that my 80+ yo grand father got used to it in less than a week but wasn't able to get used to Mac and Windows in over 10 years.

    10-To get rid of Linux, all you have to do is buy the OS you wish to install (Mac or Linux or Solaris (Solaris is downloadable for free)) and boot the CD/USB device you just bought leading you to an installation process.

Start googling! </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. 3. Linux is Obsolete
  16. 16. 4. Free Software destroys intellectual property <ul><ul><li>Working in the parallel universe of the Internet, a loosely coordinated, global federation of digital tribes built a new kind of democratic culture. This culture is embodied in free and open source software, the blogosphere and hundreds of wikis on specialised topics. It can be seen in remix music and amateur videos, the flourishing social networking sites, and new types of “open business” models. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These innovations are not primarily creatures of government or the marketplace. They represent a new “commons sector” - a realm of collective wealth generated by ordinary people through their own resourcefulness and sharing, largely outside of the money economy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By Colin Dodd, from http://truthhappens.redhat.com/2009/03/20/a-better-commons-builds-a-society/ </li></ul></ul>

And anything you can't work out? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Well, that's why we're here. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We were all Linux n00bs once too. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Honest! </li></ul></ul>
