    hmm good question... cause *nix is supposed to refer to both Unix and Linux... but teh thing is you see... Unix fits, but linux, does not have the nix part.. so i don't know.... :think:

    wilfred, wilfred... what did you learn in your degree...? :D

    * + nix = wildcard + unix... referring to any flavour of unix..

    Linux, Free/Open/NetBSD, Solaris, Mac OS X...

    Phok: Why 8%?

    Well, it usually is a matter of paradigm shift and familiarity. A long time Linux user will most likely not see any reason to use/switch to Windows, and vice versa. Here's an interesting read from a guy who swithed to Windows from Linux for a week, and he brought up an interesting point in his conclusion, on humans being creatures of habit, and those habits are hard to break.

    Cheers, Ken, you can always take your time, and no one's forcing you to learn Linux anyway :)

    One at a time... but a review of liveCDs sound interesting. I've got quite a lot of live CDs here to test and review..

    Linux users are known to never mince their words and sarcasm :) Well, neither does Steve Ballmer :D

    i totally agree too.

    If you guys ever do a part 2, you should make a review of the most used distributions and sort out whats good or/and not and help newbies choose a distribution by other things than a screenshot(lol).

    A lot of people ask me this question so i guess that would make a good subject.
