  • I feel like I own my devices: I can change whatever I want, because I use 100% free open source software; if I want to, I can change it
  • I can fight for my moral values: I have the feeling that consumerism and capitalism are eating the world; many people can't afford to pay for an Apple device or a Windows license, so they don't get access to the same education as people in rich countries get.
  • Linux makes me pro-active: if I'm not happy with the software, I give feedback or modify it myself; I don't wait anymore passively so that other people (Windows or iOS devs) fix my issues
  • I am not being spied on all the time
