Nothing against Windows or Apple, but I want to hear from people who use Linux. Basically, convince me why a regular guy like me should use it. I would describe my level of computer expertise as NOVICE. I don't build or swap components myself. I learn by reading instruction books and asking intelligent people questions. 90% of my computer usage is: Office production (word processing and spreadsheets) Checking e-mail Browsing on the internet (I use Firefox) Using a player (i.e. Real Player) to listen to radio stations Occasionally, I use Adobe Premier (Elements) for putting family videos together, but that's it. So if Linux is good, tell me why a regular guy like me should use it. BTW, 'L-eye-nucks' or 'L-in-ucks,' which is the correct pronounciation?
