A friend of mine from college always talked about linux. He swears by it. Everytime he talked about it, i always kept thinking,
But why would anyone want to change from Windows, why bother?
That is what I always asked myself, so I had a long talk with him and had him explain to me the benefits of switching OSes…..He didn’t do a really good job of it, except tell me how cool it would be to use the command line for everything and not use point and click, like most of us are used to doing. To all Linux geeks out there, here’s a tip, when introducing a noob to linux, you might not want to scare them with command line(or terminal as it should rightfully be called) jargon, at least not until they understand a little.
I wasn’t dissuaded however, I still wanted to know more…..for me, the reason was just for the fun of it. I’m an avid learner so it was a challenge more or less.
