"7. Choice - Linux gives you a choice to do things
differently and better in your home, office, or data center. Having
a choice is good for consumers because it means that vendors and
programmers are trying to get your attention by creating quality
products for you to use. Competition creates better products and
services which is a boon to you and your budget.
"6. Multiple Distributions - I've heard this one used as a
negative part of a campaign by Microsoft claiming that there are
too many Linux distributions. Balderdash! Having a system that
meets any need from cell phones and wristwatches to supercomputers
is just what we need to solve the problems at hand. Having only one
distribution is like needing to build a house but finding only a
screwdriver in your toolbox."
