    Hello friends,

    Well to begin i must say i dont like Linux! I mean what is wrong with Windows....The only reason Linux is safer is because no one has made viruses for Linux and also hardly anyone makes new softwares or games for Linux and even if someone makes it, it is hard to find.

    The August issue gave the pros and cons of all the available Linux's and in that i saw that for some reason some linux is good but for some other reason some other linux is good i mean there is no Standard base of Linux Like windows 98.

    As you all know Digit DVD of August had Linux Suse 9.1 and the September Issue has Knoppix.

    So guys if u have installed Linux from the DVD then pls tell ur experience or even other linux users can tell about their own Experiences

    well, if you're happy with Windows, what else is required !

    as for Linux, the installation is quite simple nowadays.

    It's usability and stabililty thing when u talk windows and linux... and my experience with linux is cool... i run RHEL Pro WS and WIN XP Media Center 2004 on my desktop.
    I installed SuSe by DIGIT in a Virtual PC using Microsoft Virtual PC 2004... well SuSE is a good distro... i liked it.

    U were talking about STANDARDS like WINDOWS VERSIONS in LINUX... well man ever heard of OpenSource????????? (just GOOGLE it for more info)

    WINDOWS is also not STANDARD... ask peoples who use WINDOWS (me too) and apply patch every week... lol

    sure, LINUX is cool when it comes to security stuff

    Good comment ! Afterall no one force u to use Linux ;)
    LOL , LOL , ROTFL :D
    Dude , sorry to say this , but I think u should read some books , visit some sites ( google may help ) before postin like this
    Thats the fredom . If u need server , go for Debian / RH etc etc , if u need desktop , multimedia then go for mandrake , suse . There r lot linux flavors that best suited for ur specific needs
    Thats a good idea , I agree . those can sure comment on their installations , the problems they faced , how it works for em etc etc

    Well there is already lots of discussion about usuability of Linux,

    Already lots of LINUX vs WINDOWS ..

    If still people ask that Why LINUX ? then either they don't like to read earlier posts or they really don't have patience to learn something and which is better !
