I was born with Microsoft Windows 95, and I've been using Windows since always. But I keep seeing people saying how Linux OS is better, and blah blah. So, out of curiosity, I gave it a try, to see what was so marvelous about Linux. First, I discovered that Linus is not ONE system, but in fact, a basis, on which tons of Operating Systems are built. So, I went with Ubuntu, since it looked like to be one of the most popular and accessible to all. All was pretty fluent in the installation, the screen interface is rather neat; however, it's a pain to get anything to work. Half of my devices are not recognized, and I don't find it productive at all. I don't know if it's me, or just if it's a matter of habit, but I don't find it convenient to work using it, especially for myself, who needs to open several programs at the same time, and switch from each one.
So finally, I came back to Windows. Am I wrong?

- consumes less resources, meaning you can do more with less,
- higher security, less risks of getting infected by virus / malwares (but still requires the user to be careful, of-course),
- you do not have to rely / undergo the business practices of proprietary OS' editors,
- you can get Linux distribution free,
- more freedom and possibilities to do things,

Personally, I find Linux OS "intimidating". Windows is read-to-use and familiar. From time to time, I am trying Linux (Ubuntu), but ... I don't know how to explain, I feel like I have no idea of how to do thing. But I keep trying 🙂
