Linux is a free operating system like free UNIXes. The most popular is Ubuntu(still), yet the even more stable Memphis Linux is what you really should have. The Russians and Chinese prefer Linux over Windows all the time. Most servers is either Ubuntu Server or CentOS. The WWW runs 60% Linux servers, because less viruses.

The most stable Linux ever created is usually always Slackware, yet no one heard of it (distro created back in 1994)

UNIX is obsolete in comparison.

Easier to operate than 2 years ago.
Person 1: I run Ubuntu Linux Server for my web server
Person 2: I run Cent OS, because its a free Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS.
Person 3: I'm a hardcore Linux user and I run Memphis Linux

Incredibly brilliant and stable OS designed for people who know how computers work if your too stupid then fine stick with windows XP don't complain after you can't compile the kernel source code that you accidently downloaded instead of the pre-compiled version. I'm running a version of linux as I type this (Knoppix)
knoppix runs from CD so you put it in knoppix loads take it out re-boot and then windows is back simple.
having said that though as most programs run only on windows keep it but only if it's XP.
Knoppix, Red Hat, Debian etc.

An open-source kernel, referred as GNU/Linux. Criticised by Windows/Mac users because of it's moderate difficulty of use. Let's hope it's community will continue to be populated by people who have some brain.
Windows fan: Look at my laptop, it's so cool!
Mac fan: Ha! look at mine! (fiddles with GUI)
Windows fan: Yours is shit asdasdasdasdsadasd fuk off
Linux fan: (compiz cube)
Mac fan: HOLY
Windows fan: SHIT

The OS that is used by people who know what they are doing.
Windows is for loosers, MAC OS is for housewifes, real men use Linux. Linux, makes your balls 20% heavier.

Contrary to what is claimed by many Windows-haters, not all versions of Linux are particularly good. The price you pay a stable OS is the amount of fuss and bother you undergo in trying to find a decent version of it!
I installed the free version of Linux that came with the book "Linux for Dummies". It didn't work. I am still trying to work out if there is any irony in the preceding two sentences.

An operating system-whoops, I meant KERNEL-mainly used by teenagers who think it makes them edgy and alternative (just like listening to the Arctic Monkeys). Funnily enough, they only ever install it on a hard drive partition. So when it inevitably fucks up they can fall back on Windows (which will also fuck up eventually).

Also worthy of note is that its supporters make use of the "m$" abbreviation every chance they get, hoping they'll appear to be "fighting the machine." But contrary to popular belief, having Linux does not make you a 1337 h@x0r, and being a 1337 h@x0r does not mean you use Linux.
