LXer: Here's a crazy security idea - ditch Windows for Ubuntu 10.10 Linux

Published at LXer:

After some days with the latest Ubuntu Linux desktop release, I was planning to devote a few graphs to extolling its many virtues. This is not a hard exercise because Ubuntu 10.10 is exemplary, about as good as it gets at doing the main things desktop operating systems were originally invented to do. Itís refined, uncluttered, comes with plenty of apps for most people and, most of all, itís stable and fast. It runs happily in 1GB of RAM, something no version of Windows has done since the obsolete XP. Thereís even a netbook edition with larger icons.
