LXer: Technology Today: Linux ó A new userís review

Published at LXer:

I have been a Microsoft user for a majority of my life. I started out with a 66 megahertz computer running MS-DOS on a very fancy black and green monitor. However, I recently became a self-proclaimed Linux lover. For those of you who might not know, Linux is an open source operating system that competes with Microsoft Windows and Appleís OS X. My first experience with Linux left me with a bad taste in my mouth, but the distribution of Linux known as Ubuntu 7.10 (aka ďGutsy GibbonĒ), the version prior to the current version of Ubuntu, has impressed me enough to convince me to completely switch my personal computer to Linux. It has been a fascinating adventure, and Iíve learned a lot about the inner workings of my computer.

[A great review written from the perspective of someone new to Linux, but not new to computers. - Scott]
