hi. personal experience.  I started using linux about 12 years ago installation and configuration 
are just a bit longer than in windows systems  (but you can find a lot of documentation). Linux 
systems are, by the way, more transparent (if you want to know what happens behind the interface), 
customizable and versatile than windows systems. You can run linux on micro computers  (e.g. 
raspberry), very old computers (I have ubuntu on a notebook with 256 mb ram); you can use a wider 
set of data formats (texts, images...)  and so on.  then it depends on your needs: if you have 
particular softwares or hardwares that require windows...  However, open source software 
(LibreOffice, Gimp, Blender...) has made impressive progresses in the last years, so that just a 
small number of users can note the difference (provided they don't just trust the name or think 
that higher costs mean higher quality).

Thank you for sharing that, Charles (I'm the author). Glad to know it

Thank YOU, Mr. Wallen, for your article.
Although I know, this does not belong here, just a word.
I have been trying (STRUGGLING) to move away from MS and get friendly
with Linux for 7-8 years now!
So far with little success. Yet, I still keep trying.
