What is it? I'm open to try another OS instead of XP for all the reasons people say; crashes, bugs, Microsoft license policies etc. It would be used as the only OS on a self build pc from new. Problem is, Linux is totally new to me. Never looked at it before. Who uses it and how do you find it? Is the GUI any good? I have glanced at the websites, but it's all going over my head at the moment. I need some users opinions and some good start points to learn about it in depth. One obvious advantage I've seen is XP is £150+ vrs. Linux ver. at £40 or so!
