After 1 and 1/3 years participating on the board and more than 100 posts, you ask these questions?
Anyway, as I see it:
Freedom to choose which system and which applications to use.
Software that is shared with everyone, without restrictions on use and modification.

Depending on what distribution of Linux that you are currently running on your computer this benefit should be apparent and present to the observation.

Freedom comes with a commitment-

Is it a multi tasking OS?
Yes, and if you have the time to interact with any one of the Linux distributions you will find that out for yourself.

What distro are you running?
