I am big Linux Fan. And I am proud of it. There are so many occasions when I have had long, often valiant, discussions with fanatic windows users and mac fans on why Linux is much better. Of all the reasons, The old school attack against Linux is that it is not user friendly - aah its not for every users.. Well, I have been with Linux from 2000 (Redhat 6.0) to Gutsy gibbon of today - I accept it is not a fairy tale story for a novice. But a very inspiring one for the adventurous.
Times have changed.. Linux has gained user base in much number as much as the variety of it. Friends who have sneered at Linux are now trying out and enjoying the power free software. Ubuntu has taken it further - this is the worry free solution for email only grandma's - to give away thousands of hours of your IT support. You don't even have to buy them a new computer. Bringing it to the masses. People talk about $200 laptops now.
What is more, with a community as big as the whole world - you get the best software - virus free (well almost).
Internetling has a very nice picture to make this point - have a look
