How many want to use Linux ? Linux has developed so much that now any one can use it like windows. What I felt is, if you want to learn more of internal details then hang on linux. Ofcourse if you want to play games then go for windows or playstation. A bit difficult to install something in linux but once you succeed then you will like it. Programming in linux is really cool. You can do the same stuff as visual c++ in linux. Drivers you may have problem but now most of them are supported. I think presently most of them have linux and windows installed in their system. One good thing about linux is you can kill a job easily. It is easier to handle system crash. You have most the popular chat messenger for linux. Documentation like Microsoft office is present in openoffice. You have no problem with mp3s. Browsing is not a problem, but you might get some problem if you trying to get some plugins. If you use apt-get (synaptic) then you know which latest packages are available for download. What I liked of linux is control over everything. I was thinking if digit could give lots of stuff for linux which are big in size for download and are worth having it. Like latest realplayer for linux (it should work with www.raaga.com), plugins for mozilla, netscape for linux, yahoo messenger, amsn (similar to MSN messenger), Timidity sound fonts, Java SDK for linux latest ones, drivers for display, soundcard, plugins for XMMS, alsa drivers and many more stuffs. Just try linux if you have not tried.
