My friend dual boots XP and Linux, I know that most servers/supercomputers run some sort of Linux, my Uncle dual boots XP and Linux, I believe…
I don’t really do any coding/hacking/programming (Don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not…)
I do gaming and stuff like that, so I of course need the ability to just basically do the same things that XP does. I need to be able to open up a folder and have all my music and stuff there. I want to use my familiar programs like NOD32, Paint.net, Notepad++, etc. I want to open up Steam and play games like Crysis, CoD4, but also older games like Doom and Quake III Arena.
I’m probably not going to switch OS until / when I feel that I need to, but, just out of interest, what reasons would you suggest I do/don’t use some sort of Linux OS? Which one should I use, if any? Why is it hackers/programmers/servers/supercomputers use Linux? What can it do that XP can’t?
I already pretty much planned on staying with XP but I was just wondering about Linux-based OS’s.
Although I admittedly know fairly little about Linux and whatnot, I get the basic idea of what it is. When I said Linux, I meant Linux-based OS’s. Sorry I had to hurry and didn’t say that directly.
