The short answer, I use Linux because my brother introduced it to me. This includes dvorak, vim, and the internet. Basically everything we know as modern computing today my brother showed me in the 90's.

Why I continue to run Linux, I will summarize as: if it isn't working reboot and it will continue to not work. To me this is a statement of consistency. It is unfortunate that it means a fix needs to be identified and applied, but I think I am all the more knowledgeable because of it.

This last year I built an AMD system and no longer have a dual boot to Windows. Unfortunately my day job is in Windows.
