LXer: 9 reasons to switch from Windows to Ubuntu

Published at LXer:

Before we start our journey to Linux land there is one question you need to ask yourself: why do YOU want to switch from Windows to Linux? What do you expect Linux to achieve?

Interesting writing style; sounds like it's targeted to kindergardeners, too condescending for my personal taste. On the other hand, they're probably using computers in kindergarden these days. Can't say I agreed with the answers either, though the basic question is always a good one.

But what's up with the constant stream of "x number of reasons to switch" articles? It's like tabloid articles on how to diet and lose weight.
