Heather's Paragraphs


Linux breaks 1% market share on the client? nice! Still not nearly enough. I can’t believe more people don’t use Linux, especially over Windows. I like Macs fine and enjoy OS X and several aspects of the user experience, but for programming, it’s hands down Linux, there’s nothing more straightforward. I even prefer Linux as a regular user, it’s on my PC (Ubuntu right now). I especially like the super fast and seamless installation of free and open source software. The only encumbrance is the lack of good-quality substitutes for some software products, I’m not totally satisfied with the word processing, vector graphics, and image editing open source software right now, but that could change if Linux keeps on increasing it’s market share. It’s FREE, people! All you need to do is burn it on a regular CD-R, insert the CD in your computer, and hit F11 or whatever when you reboot your computer. Unbelievable.
