Things I can do in Linux that I can’t do on Windows Vista / XP

Dan Martin has posted good thoughts about things you can do in Linux desktop but not on Microsoft Windows Vista / XP operating system.

He comes with a list:

=> Update every single piece of software on my system with a single action.

=> Keep my system secure without software that consumes my system resources, requires my time, and frequently nags me.

=> Keep my system secure without software that consumes my system resources, requires my time, and frequently nags me.

=> Run an entire operating system for free without pirating software, and without breaking the law.

=> Take my settings with me where ever I go.

=> Understand everything that is going on in my computer.

I do agree with author, remember open source is for life and for all smart people out there.

    The second and third points are same. And what do you mean by the last point ‘Take my settings with me where ever I go.’? Carry your home directory everywhere?

    The biggest thing for me is moving the “x” over to the left of the title bar in “Kubuntu”.

    I totally agree with you in all the aspects, i especially love it for the third and fifth one. It’s simply amazing and confidence inspiring to know what is going on inside your computer & the fact that you that you can control it exactly the way you want to….

    I agree too. But seems like there is more than just five reasons… I’d say something like zillion?! Hmm?
