Top 10 misconceptions about Linux

Today, I found an interesting and very useful article from other’s site Top 10 misconceptions about Linux, please pay a visit and read.

For most computer users, Windows is the only operating system (OS) they’ve ever used. In fact, most people don’t even know about other OSes at all, and that is not good. In our daily lives we always like to have a choice. Whether it’s different flavors of ice-cream or different brands and types of shirts and pants, we like to have a choice. So the question is, why not have a choice with our computers? While we all get to choose whether we want NVIDIA or ATI graphics card, most PCs come with pre-installed Windows operating system. It’s almost shoved down our throats. Where’s the choice in that?

There are many operating systems out there, some are good and some are bad. This list is about Linux, a free open-source operating system. There is a chance you have never heard of it, and even if you have you probably carry a few misconceptions about it. I’ll try to dispel some of these misconceptions starting with the most common:

1. Misconception: Linux is an Operating System (OS)

2. Misconception: Linux is a command line OS

3. Misconception: Linux is for geeks only

and many more….. ( Click here )
