Linux's always been in discussion, whether its user friendly or not or whether it would find a place in home pcs. after reading some articles in digit n getting the free cd1 of linux i tried my luck with it. i had never used linux b4. i found it really very easy 2 install, very user friendly. inside linux, there r a lot of useful applications, free. it is rock stable. the interface was just like windows. but the main problem was hardware compatiblity. i could never configure my printer n modem. i think linux is a gr8 software if u really know how 2 use it. linux will get more popular as gets popular, if u understand.
