Linux is the quintessential open source software. Talk about open source and Linux will most likely be mentioned or cited as an example. Linux has been widely described as the geek’s choice for an operating system. It has hipster cool credibility, unlike Windows or even the Mac OS. The widely regarded opinion is that Linux is hard to use and requires above-average computer skills.
This may be true when Linux was still in its infancy. But looking at the new flavors of Linux will show that it has transcended that earlier view. It is now highly usable and may even be described as being as easy as Windows in certain departments. It’s high time that computer users check out Linux.
