The title got you? Good.
It’s a never-ending fanboys war of OSes. You’ll find it in every comment box in every “spicy” article that tend to favor particular OS.
It’s quite stupid, “this war of OSes”, I think. People come from many different reasons and backgrounds that end up in OS of their choice. Even users of same OS. So one can not justify his reason to another people to do the same decision. Although their lengthy argument can be educating and mind opening, sometimes.
Every OS has its strength and weakness. There’s no such thing as perfect OS. Period.
And now we talk about why I chose such title…
In a sense of war of OSes, a good user will be those who able to convert other to his/her OS of choice. And this is the scenario:
- A good Linux user can freely and legally says “Here try my OS, take my copy and install it”,
- can non-Linux user say the same thing without being a pirate?
No, I’m not saying Linux is the perfect OS, just one advantage it has. It has weaknesses of course. It can’t play .mkv movies and no native desktop blogging tool as good as Windows Live Writer, for two.
