Many people out there love Linux because of its ease of use, easy installation from a "Live CD", Linux also has many choices of distrobutions and specialized versions (different Linux OSes) that many creative users can choose from. However, Microsoft has always come up with the SAME interface over and over again, while making only ONE true version of thier Operating System and then specializing it for different uses. HOWEVER, since these are troubled economic times especially, Microsoft doesn't provide the developing community anything, no source. Microsoft= Closed Source, Linux= Open Source available to all people to develop an Operating System off of.
There will surely be more Linux-biased articles of this to come. STAY TUNED!!!
