Why Linux is better?

I can say that I am a Linux user although I’m dual booting my PC with Ubuntu and Windows XP. Both are important to me so I don’t want to lose each one of them.

Some of you might think why some people choose Linux over Windows. What makes Linux so popular? Maybe this list can helps you.

  • Forget about viruses
  • Is your system unstable?
  • Linux protects your computer
  • Don’t pay $300 for your operating system
  • Freedom!
  • When the system has installed, why would you still need to install stuff?
  • Update all your softwares with a single click
  • Why copy software illegally if you can get it for free?
  • Need new software? Don’t bother searching the web, Linux gets it for you
  • Jump into the next generation of desktops
  • Does your digital life seem fragmenter?
  • Choose what your desktop looks like
  • Why does your Windows get slower day after day?
  • Enjoy free and unlimited support
  • Use MSN, AIM, ICQ, Jabber with a single program
  • Too many windows? Use workspaces.
  • Don’t wait years for bugs to be solved, report and track them down
  • Are you tires of restarting your computer all the time?
  • Let your old computer have a seconf life
  • Play hundres of games for free
  • Help other countries and your own
  • Get a great music player
  • Keep an eye on the weather

Phew! There are the some of the reasons why linux is better than Windows or any other operating systems. If you would like to know the details for each of the reason, you can go to Why Linux is better website.


  1. I want try to Lunux sometime but I stuck and didn’t know how to install it. I try to using wubi while installing proses but seen all of it don’t work for me..need your feedback.

  2. hohoho…aku teringin nak pakai linux ni…dan linux ni memang bagus main networking….tapi tu la…kadang2 certain games2 kat linux ni x leh main pulak…tu yang aku x install linux…..tunggu ade Pc baru, nanti barulah aku nak buat 2nd pc as a linux box….hehehe

  3. #Bernt – If you want to install with Wubi, you need t make sure that you have fast internet connection. If I am not mistaken, it needs to download the Ubuntu file from the server and then it can install Ubuntu on your Windows platform.

    #Hariz – Kenapa tak buat dual boot je? Lebih senang dan boleh pilih samada nak guna Linux ataupun Windows. šŸ™‚

  4. And you looks a tad smarter if you are running linux on your PC. šŸ˜€

  5. Yup..I’m using 512 mpbs broadband connection..I thinks that good enough to download ubuntu..I have to try several time using wubi. The problem coming after i have done everything..and I try to restart my computer.reboot it to linux os but nothing happen instead . šŸ™

  6. Iā€™m using 512 mpbs broadband connection

  7. #Syahid – Why is that eh?

    #Bent – Hurm…I am not sure why this happen. I installed Ubuntu direct from the CD. So not sure why you get that problem. šŸ™

    #canon – Cool… šŸ˜€

  8. hm.. why linux? and why microsoft?
    choose by urself..
    seems that anybody have their own answer..
    so.. stop fucking each other.. šŸ™‚

  9. Ubuntu 7.10 is a great operating system, I only have problems due to ATi’s poor drivers, but if I stay away from Compiz the thing just works. If you like Windows too much (or perhaps are too comfortable with it,) you could always try out ReactOS. It is basically an open source remake of Windows.

  10. #Hariz – Kenapa tak buat dual boot je? Lebih senang dan boleh pilih samada nak guna Linux ataupun Windows.

  11. I’m also currently dual-booting with Ubuntu and Linux!
