         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.
