Linux is good if:
You dont play games
You dont need MSOffice
You dont need photoshop
You dont need compatibility with most things
Openoffice doesnt count. You can use it for for personal applications, but if your in a business enviroment, you cant write something up in Openoffice with any worthwhile formatting that will work with word. And there is still no viable alternative to Excel, Powerpoint, and Access.
The gimp isnt as good as photoshop. Nuff said.
$80 is a small price to pay for something that you know will work.
Ive been running SP2 since it came out, for about a year now with no formats. I dont run antivirus, and just use spybot to "immunize" against spyware. I might occasionally get a tracking cookie, but thats it.
Ever hear of wine?
