Introduction to Linux

This is a basic introduction to help answer the question "What is GNU/Linux?" and what it can offer that other operating systems don't. A few key features I forgot to mention in the video: 1. GNU/Linux operating systems are MUCH less susceptible to viruses -- HUGE plus! You don't have to pay annually for any antivirus software or worry about your PC data being compromised in ways that Windows is vulnerable. 2. GNU/Linux operating systems use less system resources than Windows, allowing most machines to run much faster with GNU/Linux installed. Much. Faster. TRY IT! - For those looking to switch to Linux from Windows or give it a try without installing it on your machine. Ubuntu is Free Your Mind's primary GNU/Linux distribution of choice. You can download and learn about this brilliant OS at http://ubuntu.com/desktop.

Cheers.
