Linux is just all around better then windows.
There are ALOT of distro's you can try
Many different Desktop Environments to try.. ex: gnome, XFCE, FluxBox, E-17 and more
99.9% of the software is free and/or open source.
It looks better, you can pretty much make it look like anything
Anything you can do on winblows you can do on linux.
Most people dont like moving to linux because they think there are no games. WRONG. There are actually alot of games to try on linux. You can also use wine to play SOME of your little games from winblows.
Another reason people dont install it is because they think it will be hard to use.. and they think you have to use a command like most of the time. That really isnt true its actually easy to use. You just gotta' get use it. But you do have to use the terminal alot, But I dont see how that is a problem.. I think its easier to use the terminal.
must i go on?
Just try it, just because someone has told you something negative about it doesent mean anything. Try it your self for atlease a few weeks.
