Why You NEED Linux

Published on 7/16/2016

I have been a supporter of Linux for many years and use it exclusivly when I want to get on the Internet to visit anywhere I am not totally comfortable that I can't pick up any unwelcome software to attack my computer. To be honest, that just about limits me to visiting ONLY my own websites if I am running Windows.

With Linux, I don't worry. I have had pages appear that tell me my Windows system is infected and if I don't pay them $47 to clean it, I risk all kinds of fatal events that could ruin my life, but I just LAUGH!

The beautiful part is today it has become even easier to pick out a free Linux distribution and create a live CD to boot from and test it out without the need to install it. If you find one you like, most of them have an install program right on the CD to take the jump. You can use a dual boot with Windows, but I highly recommend you install it as the only OS on an older computer you can dedicate to being your Internet go to machine. I did that 5 years ago and have never regretted it for a minute. In fact, after a few months running Linux for my Internet work, I bought a brand new Dual Core machine with 4Gb ram and a small hard drive for CHEAP and still use it today.

You can call me a Geek or accuse me of being a fanatic, but when I look back on some of the nightmares I had when Windows was compromised and I spent WEEKS ironing out all the glitches it caused, I thank my lucky stars for taking a few steps outside my comfort zone to solve that problem once and for all.

It Was Well Worth It!
