including replacements for proprietary applications such as Microsoft Office and Photoshop.
Linux is easy To Install
Modern Linux distributions are very easy to install by simply booting from a CD and going through a graphical wizard.

Linux has Eye Candy
Modern Linux distributions such as Ubuntu include impressive 3D effects.
Linux is User Friendly
You might have heard Linux is difficult to use, perhaps in the past you might had to have been a Unix guru to work with Linux, but this is no longer the case. Modern Linux distributions can be used and administered with intuitive graphical interfaces. Of course, the power of the Unix command line is still available for those that know how to use it.
Linux has No annoying popups
Unlike other popular operating systems, in Linux there won't be any annoying popups breaking our flow of thought.
Linux Can Run Most Windows Applications
Have a Windows application for which no suitable Linux equivalent exists? No problem, Wine, a Windows compatibility layer for Linux, allows most Windows applications to run under Linux.
