Top 10 Reasons To Love Linux

10. Hard disk partitioning is fun!
09. You can look smugly at all the people you hated in high school, knowing that you're smarter than they are.
08. fsck
07. If in the unlikely event that someone were to ask you what your operating system is, you wouldn't say "Word."
06. Penguins are cool - those suckers swim fast!
05. A Linux filesystem developer may have killed his wife.
04. Coincidence? http://blogs.itworldcanada.com/insights/files/2007/10/linus_torvalds.jpg and http://www.kinggary.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/tux.png
03. Even the Mac people think you're a fanatic.
02. You can call it "Linux" and not "GNU/Linux" and there isn't a damn thing Richard Stallman can do about it.
01. When you start explaining Linux to people, you get to experience the joy of watching their eyes roll back in the sockets as they lapse into a coma.

11 While not true in every instance, You have a legally free OS that you can do whatever you please with
11b In those instances where you DID have to pay for your distrobution and or its support its in general a fairly reasonable ammount, or the support is noticably helpful as opposed to the cookie-cutter support you get from most windows help places.
