Now what?
As in, what can I do on here that I can't on Windows 7?
I have already set up a SSH server so that I can bypass the filter system at my school :p

'til they get a filter that restricts unknowns : (
Get yourself a subdomain from a somewhat wellish known site on afraid.org and point 'er to ya
works for me for possessed.us but not for the.cat

He just saying they may block your sever at school.

The only thing you can do on linux that you cant do on windows is well nothing. It just a different kernel and file system and U.I. It still just a computer you can check your email,watch youtube, watch a dvd, write a paper ext...

Linux is highly overrated... It's only advantage is that it's free, so basically, it's perfect for those who don't know how you use Bittorrent and a Keygen.

There are tons of advances of Linux besides the fact it free. Package mangers are the shit. Compiz is unparallel eye candy. Compiled kernels and software improve performance ,stability,speed. Live cd can insure you can fix and restore almost any problem that may come across on windows or Linux. Add on top that there no need to deal with a av or spyware tools. Let not even begin to talk about all the network advances Linux has over osx and windows. and tons of other shit.

Plus, if you use Linux, you can look down upon the common man because clearly, you are superior because of your OS choice :)

Yes, google is a God-send when it comes to using Ubuntu or the like.

Note "winetricks" for wine. Makes it a whole lot better. I actually played tf2 under wine, though directx didn't like it too much.

Wow, a package manager... That's cool, because I have to go through all the trouble of double clicking a set-up icon... It's a major hassle.

Oh, and yeah, avast is such a pain in the ass, with it's automatic updates. It's like pulling teeth with that thing...

Yeah, seriously.
