Most if not all members of this forum might have started using Windows or possibly Mac OSX when they first learned how to operate a computer. However, one thing that unites us here is our love or the need we have felt for using Linux. Meaning that you either switched from using the other operating systems or else started directly from Linux.
Therefore, for those of us who switched from Windows or Mac OSX, it would be great if we shared our “switching to Linux” stories, that is the year and the reason you first thought of switching to this wonderful, free and open source OS which by the way is fast becoming popular among computer users especially on desktop machines.
As for me, i made the switch in 2013 from Windows 7 and i have never looked back, first and mainly because i faced a lot of problems with viruses on Windows, then secondly i needed to try something new, face a new challenge in using my machine. Plus many other minor reasons such as LAMP errors, non-free software and more.
Your feedback is warmly welcome. Thanks.
