#Linux is an operating system that basically acts as a platform for your computer to run on. Despite #Linux having advanced capabilities than other operating systems, #Linux is not as widely used as its peers Windows, Mac OS X and Android. However, IT geeks and technicians are becoming increasingly frustrated with the shortcomings of the industry leader and are turning to #Linux to improve the personal computer systems.

A variation of #Linux is used by many companies in the technology industry and most super computers are run on a variation of #Linux. One of the key selling points for #Linux is that is it designed with security in mind and has encrypted codes as standard, therefore reducing the threat of virus attacks.

    I totally agree with you! In these critical budget times, you would think there would be more emphasis on open source solutions. I bet they could set up a class for tech minded students to run maintenance, saving even more $$ and giving the kids work experience opportunities. M$ is pretty well entrenched in the system, that’s for sure!
