Linux works on a large number of different kinds of devices. It can be found installed on desktop PCs, notebooks, mobile phones, routers, fridges, cars, planes, etc.
Linux gives you a level of flexibility that none other operating system will ever be able to offer. There are always millions of different solutions for the same tasks, and loads of free software for you to choose from. While other popular operating systems offers you only one graphical interface, in Linux you can choose between many fast and highly usable desktop environments, and yet customize each of them too.
With Linux, installation of software had never been easier. You will install 99% of all the software that you need from one system-integrated installer. Once you select from list specific software that you need it will download, install and set it up for you.

I started because I was curious, and I came back for the community. A very impressive alternative to the commercial OSs.

In 2006, I decided to test the Cube Desktop in Beryl, and so I install my first Linux system, that was Mandriva. Unfornately, I was totaly lost, and no access to the Community.
After that I heard about Ubuntu. I decided to test it... and it didn't work because of my ATI graphic card.
I post a thread on the French forum of Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu-fr.org) and in 40 minuts somebody help me.
The French Community is very active, and the Wiki is so good.
And The distribution is so easy to use. That's why I installed Ubuntu on all my computer. I become an Ubuntu addict. I update my Ubuntu to the news Alpha 5 for each version since Gutsy Gibbon :p. I joined recently the Ubuntu-party-Paris team.
That's all Folks !!!

So I had this old Windows 98, I tried to upgrade to 2000 with a friends old 2000 disk. It failed miserably. Another friend let me have a Ubuntu disk because my computer had lost it's OS. I never really knew how bad Windows was until I tried Ubuntu. Yeah it took some getting used to, but now it's all I really ever use. Plus, whenever I do have a problem, I go to the internet and don't need to go through a tech support call. Best OS ever. I have it on 3 computers now.
Oh yeah, moving windows is fun now, didn't see that coming.
