So, the big question... Why do you use linux? I use to email Eric Raymond back and forth when I was younger... He got me hooked. Ever since then I've been a linux fan. I like how it runs, it's use of ram, how stable it is, the look, the taste (mmm like chicken wtf lol)... Blah blah. So lez hear your story.

The power, the fact i like to try new things and its free to try. the fact that its not "mainstream". it's challenging. I like learning new things. *I like to spend hours upon hours reading man pages and editing .conf files. which i should also include im sick in the head* it has that sexy, nity grity, bad boy apeal in an OS that ive always found atractive and microsoft just doesent offer to me.

open source, stable, you're in control of everything. Need more?
