Linux Today reader Matt Anderson writes:

"I am a Win32 user personally, but I found a really kickin' article that dealt with many of the issues and myths I (as a Win32 user) was forced to deal with in moving to a Linux desktop. The overview takes on some of the common misconceptions of the Linux OS.

"It begins by including a down to earth comparison between both Windows and Linux on common issues like usability and support."

"Additionally, this review goes on to address common myths attributed to the Linux OS and offers stepwise insight into how to minimize numerous unnecessary gaps between your OS of preference (whether is be Windows or MacOS) and Linux.

"In a nutshell, I think any Win32 and/or MacOS faithful users will find this a worthy read ... and hopefully will dismiss any unfounded doubts about this elegant OS."
