Why do people buy Windows and Mac when there is Linux?
still, all free. You could save up the hundreds of dollars spent on windows/mac licenses and still do everything on your machine you need to with Linux right?
You can still create MS word compatible documents and spreadsheets
you can still use firefox/watch youtube/browse internet/tweet
you can still watch DVD movies
you can still edit video and audio and create music in Linux
and with WINE You can play some PC games, but a console would be more practical for that anyways I think.
What is the practical use for running Windows or Mac these days? Why spend (or waste in my understanding) the money?
Piracy is illegal
and that is a misconception that Linux is incompatible. It really is highly compatible.
don't just blow Linux off based off hear-say rumors you've read or been told. Linux is just as powerful if not more so than Windows and Mac
