Why Should I Use Linux?

Good Question. Linux is a free operating system that is based on the Unix operating system created in the late 1960s. Basically, most things that you can do in Windows can be done in Linux. The Linux operating system is especially favoured as a low-cost solution to run various servers (web, ftp, etc). It is also used as a cost-effective platform to develop software.
