Linux: Unix-type OS that is free, stable, and works 24/7
Both systems have their good and bad points so stop acting like five year olds with your dumb little one upmanship. You'll be saying "my dad could have your dad" next. Or maybe that was last week.
And the pronunciation is "lin-uhckz", not "linn-ix".
Go on to www.netcraft.com
Then look up "www.urbandictionary.com" on the web server search. I see SEVEN linux servers, and 2 netbsd/openbsd servers.
I was able to install Mandrake Linux on my computer without any help, BECAUSE I RTFM! Like when I first installed WINDOWS!!
All the people who said shit about linux either:
1) Heard about it from Microsoft
2) Heard about it from SCO
3) Heard about it from some anti-linux group.
4) Saw a friend use Slackware
5) Saw a friend use the terminal.
6) Tried using Slackware as their first distro.
Linux is a great computer for all uses except crashing on you.
Ubuntu, Suse, Mandrake, and MEPIS are great linux distros that offer excellent user friendliness WITH GRAPHICAL TOOLS. So you don't even HAVE TO USE THE FUCKING TERMINAL!!
Only thing you can't do is run Windows stuff, like WINDOWS AIM, and WINDOWS EXPLORER, so don't even try doing stupid ass stuff.
Me:: Dumbass, AIM FOR LINUX, GAIM, KOPETE, LICQ, and NAIM!
Also, the only thing which stands between Microsoft and World Domination.
Microsoft programmers also make their programs/OS's on Linux boxes....
(2) An operating system subject to bashing by people who dont fit in the above category.
