Who wants to try Linux?

Jun 5, 2008
There seems to be a lot of hum-drum with Linux these days and you can hear a word or two about Linux and different Linux downloads and different Linux programs and guess what? All of them are for free! But of course, there will come a time that some of them will come for a price but that doesn't seem to be a worry for many existing Linux users out there.

Most of today's Linux subscribers were actually using other operating systems and decided to transfer to Linux because of some annoying experiences. You can almost hear their murmurs whenever they talk about their previous systems. A complaint from a lady in her workplace have been heard telling that she got all fed up and totally annoyed with her current operating system and thinks of migrating to Linux. No worries at all because I think it's just so easy to do it. Another thing is, switching to Linux can be very fast for her since she's not using the software herself.

But before you go through, you ought to know more things about Linux. First thing must be you need to take a look if your present software is compatible to the new operating system, will it be more intuitive, user-friendly and worry-free. If you have this thing you can now decide what the next thing to do is.

Talking about free, most of the Linux software are really for free but that doesn't bother you? According to another colleague, you need to watch out if you're planning to use Linux.The more "freebie" it becomes, the more it is prone to some malicious software or programs or something like that.

Next is you have to see if the Linux commands are still the same, more of, sort of a familiar environment, so to speak. Who would want to migrate to another environment and you find yourself trap in a dangling web of a killer which will make you gasp for breath and pray you should stayed in your safe little hole-place.

Anyhow, if you think you are ready enough to switch and try something new, then better opt for something that have positive feedbacks. Try to look at the bright side of your choice. Don't worry too much about some adverse comments, for as long as you know that you, yourself can handle any problems that may occur (we could never really get rid of any unexpected failures). Consider the point that Linux has been very congenial to its users and is very friendly to the budget too. You won't have to fret since some of its software are still offered for free (to download and to use as well).

In additional, the other thing that you should do is review and read more about Linux. Look for a site with recommendations and ask for some who knows about it and how it work. And before complaining about little things like how the pretty and petty card game can't work on Linux. Try to find out first if your present programs can work with Linux.

To finish this off, it will make sense to weigh all the odds and to consider the possibilities first before deciding to switch for Linux. A dissatisfied OS user (of another system) may opt for Linux to try its proficiency and effectiveness. He may go through a lot of new commands to learn and get familiar with, yet the important thing is, he is happy and comfortable with his choice. Well, the bottom lines for this is - if you are already fed up with what you currently have and is already annoyed of its performance, then why stick to that when you have greater options to choose from? So to speak, Linux may have been waiting for you all along.
