This Mac devotee is moving to Linux

| So why am I about to migrate to Linux (aka
| GNU/Linux)? Because Apple is pushing me
| away, and because I value some principles,
| perhaps almost religiously, that affect
| other decisions.

No One Takes Linux Seriously Until...

,----[ Quote ]
| If you practice with a Live CD of your
| favorite distro, next time your Windows
| computer crashes, you will be ready to
| operate it temporarily using Linux. A
| colleague of mine (who happens to break
| his computer from time to time with the
| aid of the most destructive viruses I've
| ever seen) started his computer, checked
| his email, and browsed the Web this way
| for almost a month before we could restore
| his Windows XP. I personally don't
| recommend surviving on a Live CD for so
| long, but it was his choice and Linux was
| up to the job.

| I've taken a look at Debian, Mandriva and
| Fedora. (I might have tried Suse too, but the
| LiveCD has never worked on my computer.)
| After first trying a LiveCD, I installed all
| three distros and gave them a good try-0ut.
|
| The core Linux philosophy is Free, as in
| Freedom, but I'm also interested in Free, as
| in Beer, so I took a look at how each
| distribution handled multimedia- Flash and
| MP3's in particular.
