the benifits (& drawbacks) of linux
o.k., I know very little about linux but have always wished I had the time it would take to become proficient at it. I know that linux uses way less resources than winblows, but to someone like me, at least I can do almost anything I want in it.
I think it would be good if some of you linux affectionado's could enlighten the rest of us as to what the benifits are, & maybe convince a few more of us that it may be worth the time & dedication it would take to exlore this option..............
what would the learning curve be in your opinion(s). is linux the kind of thing that an average joe can spend 10-15 hours on & then be able to start doing something with it, or is this reserved for only the nerdiest high tech ones that can imerse themselves in it for countless hours of countless days for a really long time............can someone with a life still find room to learn this, or is it as complicated as learning to become a computer programmer (I already have a job, thank you)
