Linux is my operating system for many years. I had first contact with the kernel 0.99. In the past I haven't used it for everyday work. During my Study work (1997) at BMW I fall in love with LaTeX and had no reason using MS-Windows any more. Since that time I use Linux every day. At sitronic GmbH I was able to use Linux for my job as well (Red Hat in various versions).
Avoid the blue screen of death. Use Linux!
Linux offers me the possibilities, securities and freedoms which I expect from an operating system.
