    It is a generic term referring to Unix-like computer operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Their development is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration.

    The popularity of Linux on standard desktops (and laptops) has been increasing over the years. Currently most distributions include a graphical user environment. The two most popular such environments GNOME and KDE, both of which are mature, and support a wide variety of languages.

    You can't directly load it onto your Windows OS. Still if you want to load Linux, Mac or any other software you can use Virtual Machine or Pear PC like software.

    Well, post #2 was an almost direct copy from Wiki...

    Maybe he doesn't 'get' Rudy's humour?

    Yes, Rudy is having a little fun at your expense.

    Though if he we're actually interested he could install it on Windows (sorta) using the Wubi Installer.

    Go for it Rudy!

    I started on Wubi, trying out Ubuntu. I haven't looked back since - Linux is much nicer than windows, no doubt about it. Now most of my hard drive is dedicated to Linux and I've only used windows 3 times since - one was to practice driving theory questions (from a PC-only CD), another was to see why linux couldn't accept my wireless card using WPA-PSK (turns out broadcom don't have a linux-compatible driver, so I'm using a wifi USB stick) and another was to try out about 7 site designs using IE.

    Linux is more user-friendly (for those who know their way around a computer), has alot of decent applications which make windows applications redundant (and they're free!) - apart from Fireworks, which I do dearly miss (And I'm not TOUCHING Wine, a windows emulator).

    It's also more flexible - pretty much everything on it is open source, so I could do anything - from moding my favorite programs to do hundreds of useful repeditive tasks at the click of a button, to making my calculator 'forget' the number 7!

    It really is.

    Dependancies are all taken care of - if you want to install a program which uses a certain code base which your computer doesn't have, it installs it for you - whereas in windows you have to sort it yourself.

    With the 'add/remove' application (can't find the official name), you can find a program to do whatever you want, without endless web searching. FREE, reliable software.

    It has no ties to browsers - you can remove them all and the system would function fine - unlike windows which requires IE.

    Running similar things as windows, the processing power is lower and the battery life longer. I have three separate areas - one for work, one for communication and another for general use. Less taskbar clutter.

    On top of all that, it updates very regularly. Every 6 months, upgrades of the operating system come out with mostly significant changes. Ontop of that, I'm getting software and library updates almost every day.

    The whole feel of the system is freedom; Something you rarely achieve with windows.

    I think the only reason it doesn't have market dominance is because it's free - therefore has no real marketting power. Alot of computer suppliers are legally required to install the computers with Windows. Schools are required to use Windows. It's the operating system people are comfortable with - because they haven't given Linux a real try. It's a bit like the IE/decent browser debate, really.

    I have a Windows PC and a Ubuntu PC. I just use the windows one as I can still not find my way easily around the Linux one. Just what I am used to as have been using windows since 3.1.

    One thing about Linux that annoys me is the pograms. I use ImageMagick and I can install the latest version on my Windows PC by downloading it pressing a couple of buttons and its done.
    On the Linux machine the last time I looked around christmas the official version for Ubuntu was 6.3.5 which is about 1.5 - 2 years old.
    If I go to the ImageMagick download page there is the latest version for Fedora. So to get the latest version I need to uninstall Ubuntu and install Fedora OR have dual boot Linux OR mess about with downloading a tar.gz, finding the dependencies, changing user, sudo this, make that and whatever and hope it installs.

    I can not be bothered with all that, the same went for a program I wanted to try Photorecover; in the end I just gave up.

    I forgot about a mp3 ripper, that took me two evenings to get installed and had to talk to the IT guy at work who said:
    The standard programs for Ubuntu are written by most of the same people who look after Ubuntu and they are not the best programs. You are better off downloading and installing others.

    Although saying this I am still trying to get used to Vista after 4 months!

    Actually, you can just go to System/Admin/Synaptic Package Manager, type 'ImageMagick' and click the checkbox. Done

    Alot of functions you need are already there - you just need to think about where they'll be. If I want to put a CD (full of .wav) onto my ipod (converting to MP3 first), I just put in the CD, and it opens RhythmBox, which you click 'Extract', it converts to MP3 (if you have mp3 set in your preferences - default is ogg), then drag it to my ipod collection.
