thinking of switching to linux

I'm looking for a little help. I'm thinking of switching from windows nt to Linux but I need a little info first.

1. Why should I switch to Linux?
2. What are the pros and cons?
3. What about major programs I already use(i.e Mozilla Firefox, Messenger programs)? I already made the switch from that terrible IE7.

If anybody could help me it would be greatly appreaciated.

Hi, welcome to LQ!

You'll find all possible views and opinions, and some
facts, in the thread below: no need to re-iterate it
yet again.


P.S.: I'm closing this one to avoid a second monster. If that seems wrong
to you contact me via e-Mail, and I'll move the post to General for
it to be merged with the other monster :}
