Dell talks about desktop choice…

I just finished watching a really well produced video on Dell Computer’s website. It is one of the better introductions to Linux I’ve seen. Salient features of Linux include cost, susceptibility to malware and system stability.

When you say “I wrote a program that crashed Windows,” people just stare at you blankly and say “Hey, I got those with the system, for free.” –Linus Torvalds

Here’s hoping that you’ll take a look at this video. Click here.

    The way the video explains Linux, it reminds me of a technical version of a Wiki, where people add or correct new stuff to the original. Interesting.

    You’re right. I hadn’t thought of it that way but Linux and wikis are analogues in that respect and maybe in all respects. 🙂 Don
