This question came up recently on tuxradar.com. The question was: Do you see yourself switching back to Windows or Mac?
Hmm, good question. Isn’t it?
Well, as I started to answer it in the comment section I came to realize that I had a lot to say. So much in fact I was like…..”I could just make this a blog”.
And so I did!!!!
Its been nearly three years since I got started with Linux and now I use it at least 90% of the time. I have found that virtually everything I did on Windows, I can do in Linux with much less hassle.
Talk about a relief!!!
If I don’t like the way the desktop environment looks, I can tweak it to my heart’s content, or I can even get another one.
It’s just that easy!!!
I don’t ever have to worry about signing some legal agreement whenever I get a piece of software that specifically tells me not to share it with others, and is also something that isn’t really mine it’s something I borrow. In Linux, its like this: “They’ll have theirs, and you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine”.
And together we’ll be fine.
Never have I used the command-line so much. That is, until I started using Linux. Even in that case there are different options available to download software. I can use the Terminal, I can use the Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic to get what I want.
Besides, it’s been so long since I started with Linux that it’s feels right….so right….like paradise.
So my answer is: No I would never switch back to Windows!!!
Never, never, never!!!!
