Even though Linux journalists like SJVN try to push Linux a lot by doing anti-microsoft campaigns like these, there is always this Linux Myth with every user who wants to try Linux or uses Linux,
1) Linux is more Stable, Reliable
2) Linux is FREE, no penny being spent!
3) Linux is Virus Free!
One of my friend sent me an email recently on what he felt about using Linux –
I’ve been using Linux exclusively this year. But…. it is so boring! The only application I use is my browser. (Which incidentally crashes several times a day.) Seriously I don’t have a single useful program. I do all my coding in a vi terminal.
sidenote: The myth that linux software is more reliable is fading very fast for me. A wise friend of mine said to me many many years ago that the only reason Linux doesn’t get viruses is because IT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING. I’m beginning to see his wisedom.
I need not explain more here 😀
Thats why people still say Linux is no Vista Killer 😉
