What is this Linux thingy and why should I care?
here. A more visual feature rich Linux looks like this. There are also some nice screenshots that you can check out. The great thing about Linux is that you can customize almost anything about it and make it look like your own artistic creation. Don't listen to large companies that are trying to put down Linux because they have their own bottom line in mind. They don't want people to learn about Linux because they would not be able to charge the average person so much money for an operating system. You be the judge for yourself and give Linux a try. There are many different Linux distributions to choose from but a great one to start of is Ubuntu Linux. It's fast, easy, intuitive and has lots of support from a great community of people. Later on if you learn a little bit more about Linux you can move on to other distributions. Each distribution is geared towards a different user and you are bound to find one that fits your needs. Open Source software is changing the computer industry and allowing the average user to have more power without being locked in and constrained by large corporations that use patents, licenses and other methods to limit your use of software.
