Oh Linux, how do I love thee?

Let me count the ways...an open letter to Linux

Way number 1: You breathe new life into old hardware. They should age PCs in dog years. Here's a trusted dog year calendar that helped me better determine the age of my Laptop. My three-year old laptop is going on 25 dog years now, and Windows is like the Army, and 25 year old recruits are starting to get too old to put on the front lines. The average Windows PC lasts three to four years, which at best, would give my laptop a little less than a year to accept its demise. Thanks to you, my laptop should get at least another three years in it, three years of happy blissful churning away of bits and bytes. And thanks again for all the money you have saved me by allowing me to hold on to my aging computer and eliminate the need to put up for the cost of a new laptop.

Way number 2: You run so very fast. I love to just watch you spinning away, launching applications so quickly, executing my programs swiftly. You save me all that time. I still remember how it was before we met, when Windows would freeze, when it would take up all my memory, when it would get slower and slower with each Windows update, when boot up times and the time to load my desktop would increase with every restart, when after every application I would install I would need to close Windows and bring it back up. But those days are over now; I'm much more productive now; I get more work done in significantly less time.
