We should not use Linux if you're using something better... like FreeBSD
(I kid, I kid)

I also don't understand the question - do you mean when is Linux a poor choice? Or what it doesn't do well?

Why we shouldn't use linux.

Immune from virii, trojans, worms, is life at it's most boring.

Having to NOT pay $30 for every LITTLE function isn't great for corporate america.

Having to NOT pay $700 for an office suite.

Having to NOT pay $2,500 for a development suite.

Having to NOT pay $100,000 for 3D rendering abilities.

Oh wait, that's why we SHOULD use linux.

We should not use Linux because it would deplete M$'s profits, and upset Mr Ballmer.

We should Not use Linux if we want a unsafe internet browsing, lot of viruses, hacked systems, trojans, worms, and have a lot of free time to format systems every couple of days and still pay some organizations for some crap. And most importantly, we should not use Linux if we want to be dumb idiots all our life and not learn something great.

We shouldn't use Linux:
Linux Today - Microsoft: Windows 7 Is Superior to OS X, Linux, and to All Platforms
http://www.linuxtoday.com/news_story...0-004-35-NW-MS

Seriously Linux gets boring after a while you can only tweak things until they break so many times.
With no malware infections to fix what else is there to do?

Kindly do not use Linux, as it will make your brain sharper and knowledgeable and then since you will not create senseless/homework/incomplete threads, how will LQ members entertain themselves ?

We should not use Linux if we support the Corporate Mentality and American Capitalism, as exemplified by you-know-who and Haliburton
