Six Things You Didn’t Know About Linux: A Beginners’ Guide

Small Business Pipeline has an EXCELLENT and extensive article all about Linux. It’s really a good and thorough read. They write Love it, hate it, heard lots about it, but still don’t have enough of a handle to form a firm opinion? Then we must be talking about Linux, the open-source operating system that’s alluring because it’s heavy duty and it’s free. Simultaneously, it’s intimidating to newbies because it’s typically more difficult to install and configure than Windows.
However, now is an opportune time to get past those concerns. Interest in Linux is expected to spike throughout the year, thanks to Microsoft’s delay of its consumer version of Windows Vista. The hang-up could cast a pall on the year-end PC sales season. Perhaps that’s one reason the mainstream media is discovering this “revolution” in software that’s nearly 15 years old.
So if you’ve ever planned on giving the open-source operating system a whirl, but, like the Georgia bride-to-be, got cold feet at the last minute, we’ve ferreted out six useful facts that’ll ease your path when you decide to take the plunge.
