Linux is not for poor... lots of big servers run on it, Linux is just an alternative to Windows, you are not force to use Windows, Im sure (Anonymous at 10:15) that you didn't paid for your Windows and crack it...

I use linux for everything except the games that I can't seem to get working except in windows. I'm very happy that all of the quake and doom games I like to play are ported to linux, it saves me some reboot time.P.S. I'm not poor, but I use linux because its more enjoyable then using the same old windows gui over and over again.

Linux and *nix power the web and everything important in the world, such as; large databases, file storage and NAS. If the Windows kernel is so great, why are they the only OS to use it. All other OS's use a *nix variant (Mac, Sun, IBM, BSD, Linux. Oh yeah, MS runs their all important website on Linux. Just remember that next tuesday, when your performing your Windows update.
