The BEST OS I've used in a long time, that piece of crap made by Microsoft (let's face it, all things Microsoft are crap, it's a good thing there is a way to run Linux on an XBox, assuming anyone would want to which they probaby would) was as unstable as hell. Linux is free, stable, can be used for home computing though not many people do as they think. Also, Linux is ideal for server applications though most college IT admins use Windows server instead because they are lame arses. My advice, go and get some blank cds and download Linux, you have nothing to lose
Windows: Piece of crap made by that crap software company called Microsoft (who stick product keys on the software)

Linux: Unix-type OS that is free, stable, and works 24/7

the best operating system for people who really want to use a computer
man... this new linux server is fast.... it only installed in a few minutes and it dont hog RAM like windows server 2003 did.... and you can completly customize the kernel!
An operating system made for open-source software. While more stable and dependent, it is harder to learn, which confuses the poor illiterate moronic rednecks putting up spam. They are confused by an OS that wont come with everything to make life easy for them, hence the misplaced anger.
Seriously, all you anti-linux posters, just because your iq isnt above 2, doesn't mean that you can post crap.
Linux rules.

Linux is one of three major operating sysems (windows,mac, linux)
Linux is Free opposed to the others making pre installed laptops much much cheaper.
Linux also has no known viruses, is much cheaper, works MUCH FASTER and is barely exposed to crashes.
However it involves using other versions of everything such as MSN, Word and excel.
Many debate it bad and many debate it better.
YOU: ew why can't you nudge on msn?!
ME: *rolls eyes* linux version of msn...

Linux is NOT an OS (Operating System). Linux is the actual kernel from which the platformed distribution runs and obtains directions. The Linux kernel is an open source system which falls under the GNU General Public license. In essence, Linux is a compressed, open source platform of UNIX. The actual OS's (distributions or flavors) are gentoo, red hat, unbuntu, slackware (Although very similar to straight UNIX), mandrake, arch, debian, mandriva, etc.

The Linux kernel was designed and constructed by Linus Torvalds to provide a free, open source kernel for all computer lovers.
i.e. Microsoft XP is an OS. Microsoft also has a kernel which makes it run. Linux is the actual kernel for distributions like S.u.S.E. etc.

1. Hey, do you use Linux?
- What?

2. Hey, do you use Linux?
- I love that OS
You're stupid.

3. Hey, do you use Linux?
- Yes, why yes I do.
Righto, Chap. Well done.

The term Linux by itself refers to the kernel, not the operating system. It is based off of UNIX. The popular mobile phone operating system Android runs off of the Linux kernel. Also, OS X is based of of UNIX.
Linux is by far the best operating system for advanced users, though it is mainly up to personal preference
