I don't know why everyone puts up with linux ****. Win2k is just as stable if not more plus you can run high quality productive programs such as PhotoShop, Dreamweaver, Freehand, Director, Quarkexpress, Illistrator, Flash and the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on.
With linux all you have is config problems, crashing and a bunch of worthless freeware.
You pay nothing for Linux and you get nothing just pure garbage.
