When we have free will, why not use a free operating system?
It has been a while since I have written here but I promise to be regular from now on. Something that has been disturbing me since quite some time is - Why are we not using Linux? Considering the advantages for geeks as well as non-geeks, Linux should be at a preference over the traditionally popular propreitary operating systems.
I personally have been a Linux user since quite some time now, even though I was not comfortable with the command line interface. I used KDE then and use GNOME now. Most people are still living in the misconception that Linux simply means a command driven shell. This is absolutely wrong! Linux is not even that. Linux, technically speaking is the kernel. The core. You cannot see Linux at work. What you see is only an interface, command line or GUI. A user is not meant to see the operating system anyways. He only sees Applications.
