Monthly Archives: September 2016

Dear readers,

this month we’re trying to shape some awareness: we want you to switch! From whatever operating system you are using to Linux!

On the 5th of October 2016 humanity’s most advanced, most secure, most stable and (probably) most updated operating system turns 25. But, for reasons not fully understood to us from a technical perspective as well as from a rational point of view, to this date worldwide current estimations only count 87.000.000 actual users. With an internet population of over 3.4 billion…

As an entrance, if you’re curious how many and which distributions are available use this list:

There exists a distribution for everyone!

  • For Mac-Enthusiasts who care about a beautiful desktop: choose Elementary
  • If you care about ethics, choose Debian
  • If you want to use “a Linux that everyone uses” choose Ubuntu or openSuSE, those two distributions are the easiest and offer the most support
  • If you want to be a programmer or hacker, choose Arch

This is only a very small list, Linux is diversity: to this date 280 different distributions are listed on, and growing.

Buried in a recent announcement the two biggest desktop CPU makers in the world, AMD and Intel, announced both that they only support Windows 10 or newer with their newest generation of chips. So time has come to support your own OS advancement too: switch to Linux when buying a new laptop or PC! We promise you won’t regret it.

Thanks for reading and don’t miss out: 5th of October 2016, Linux becomes 25! Happy Birthday, Linux! And thank you that you’re still with us to this date! You rock!
