The reason I tried Linux was because Windows of the time was so
unstable! I would never had tried Linux if Window's Blue Screen of
Death had not been popping up almost every day and on the days that
did not get me the slow downs, viruses, ads, and rebooting every time
I updated something, did get me. Linux was free AND all the software
with it was free. It was also more stable than MS. One other really
important thing was that when Linux broke or did not work, I could
find a  way to fix it. With Windows you have no way to change it or
fix it; you must wait and hope that MS fixes it.
