Why Switch to Linux? Here's a few Reasons!

Linux = freedom (.)

+21,000(plus) free software packages - this includes all types of programming tools, networking/PC Repair tools, office tools, scientific research tools, media tools, photo tools, kids learning games, bible study tools, the list goes on and on

+Drivers for most common software (pretty good considering the drivers aren't usually provided by the mfgr)

+At least 14 different Office Productivity tools to read/write in Open Document Format (includes OpenOffice.org and now IBM Lotus Symphony). These tools also save to MS formats (i.e., xls, doc, etc) and export to PDF natively.

+Actually reduces the pirating of software since people can get software free instead of "getting a copy" of a software title from someone else

+Feeling and being empowered to do what YOU want to do with your operating system and software

+Having piece of mind and actually learning more about using computers

+Virus/Malware free (note: use your firewall to be safe anyway)

+No controlling corporation requiring you to "activate with the genuine disadvantage" and/or suddenly dropping support for a proprietary format that you've been forced to use

+No upselling of software for mega-profit by tying the Operating System into working best only with the same-mfgr software

+2500(plus) different versions of the Linux Operating System to use/extend/share/enjoy

+No locking your data up into a proprietary format since programs are open-source and typically use world-renowned standards

+Instant CoolGuy (advanced user status) just for installing and using Linux

+ADVANCEMENT OF HUMANS EVERYWHERE VIA TECHNOLOGY

Get on the BUS!! LINUX IS THE FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY!!!
