Carla Schroder lists some good benefits to Linux in her article on switching from Windows XP:
Let's run through the pros and cons of switching to Linux. First the good parts:
-Immune to Windows malware, and you don't need anti-malware software
Offers both free of cost and supported options
- Runs great on older, less-powerful hardware
- No insane license restrictions
- No artificially crippled versions to justify multiple price points
- No phoning home to the mothership for permission to use your own computer the way you want to
- Flexible and configurable
- Easy one-click software installation and removal, from secure sources
- Great hardware support, without having to hunt down drivers
- A giant world of great software for free, and lots of great commercial software
- Maintained by an open, global community of first-rate developers and contributors
- All Linux software is available on the Internet, so you never lose it.
