I use Ubuntu because it is free and it really works far better
than any version of Windows I have tried. Yes there are problems but
once solved (understood) they are gone. My wife loves Windows XP and I
get to fix that. I usually fail and we take the computer to a shop.
Also this is MY computer. I am long retired. But if I owned a
business it would have both Windows and in the important places Linux.
