Discussion on: Let's talk about Linux

I graduated in the 1990 and since then I (almost) used only Linux. Main drawback at that time was the difficulty of having hardware (printers, modems, ...) working with Linux. Nowadays that is more or less a memory...

What I like about Linux is the feel of total control: I can even change the kernel if I want... Also most of the open source software works pretty well, sometimes even better than the corresponding proprietary software, maybe with less whistles and bells, but it does its job and reliably too! (and if it doesn't I can correct it... I did that in the past)
