Open Your Heart and Let the Linux In

Filed under
Ubuntu

Arrrgghh!!! There be pirates a’ swimmin’ in the ink here! But, seriously, how many of you have pirated something before, like games, operating systems, Office and DVDs? Aren’t you tired of even having to pay for those things in the first place? Then I have just what you need! Linux! “Linux,” you say? Yes, Linux!

“What is Linux,” you say? Linux is a Unix-based operating system that is developed and distributed by computer enthusiasts free of charge. Anyone with a PC can use Linux, and will not have to pay for the software ever, which is good news for those of us who do not like to pay for things.

One of the major complaints about Linux in the past has been its rather unfriendly user interface. In order to change anything, one had to go through a command line system entering commands that, quite frankly, were extremely difficult for even experienced users to do correctly. Oftentimes, I would find myself working on the PC running Linux trying to get things working with my windows laptop open next to it so I could look up exactly what the commands were in order to do, well, anything. Thankfully, those days are long gone with the recent releases of Linux distributions like Ubuntu.

Full Story.
