LXer: Top 7 Reasons People Quit Linux

Published at LXer:

I've been writing Linux guidebooks for some time, and it's fair to say that most people who buy my books are Windows users looking to make the leap to Linux (or perhaps just wondering what the fuss is about). Because of this, I've heard a lot of excuses why people quit Linux, and return to Windows. I'm happy to say that the excuses are getting far less common nowadays, compared to 2003, when I wrote my first book. But I still hear 'em. Here are the top seven reasons I've come across. No doubt you've heard them too.

It's odd. If you substitute the word Windows for the word Linux, almost all of the complaints apply. Linux obviously gets held to a different standard.
