How to quit Windows and switch to Linux or OS X


Here's an article that some folks might find interesting which offers some pretty compelling reasons why ditching Windows in favor of Linux or OS X might not be such a bad a idea these days:

Nice article, I only wish they had listed LQ in the "helpful links" section. There is a linuxquestions.COM which is a completely unrelated site. Oh well. Thanks for submitting the article. -- J.W.

I think he meant us, not the .com site - the .com appears to be one of those holding/search pages.

Good article though.

Thanks for the tip. The intention was of course to link to linuxquestions.org. The link has been corrected in the article. Cheers
