Latest: Voice of the Masses: What is your #1 reason for using Linux?

August 18, 2014

Our next podcast will be recorded in a few days — a bit later than usual, due to the summer holidays, but rest assured it’ll be a scorcher. And for this episode’s Voice of the Masses section, we want to hear from you: what is your main reason for running GNU/Linux?

Perhaps it’s the operating system’s famed stability, or its solid track record in security. Maybe you love the freedom that the GPL brings, or you just got damn sick of dealing with Windows problems. You might be a developer and love all of the tools and compilers that are easily available.

In any case, let us know what’s top of your list, and we’ll read out the best comments in our upcoming recording!
