It’s come a long way since I began to use it years ago. That, however, doesn’t mean it hasn’t anything to improve on or to develop. I remember having a lot of hardware compatibility in Linux years ago, but hardware compatibility these days has come a long way.
Ashish Pandey thanked Linus Torvalds:
without Linux, we cannot imagine the world now or in the future. This is how Linux has dominated in the world of technology
Thank you, Linus Torvalds
Burnno Wallace shares his Linux journey:
My first Conectiva Linux Guarani 3.0 – December 1998.. I did a big trip to Sao Paulo to buy it for 30 reais. since then I never spent a dime on antivirus… those were good times to grow up with linux.. boys spent money on cinema, motorcycles and other occupations, while I saved my coins to buy a magazine with a cd bringing a new linux distro… those were my boyhood days of happiness… every version of distro was like making a new trip… every application was like a new city… and today my 12 yo kid loves Linux in his laptop… my 8 yo kid love it in his raspberry Pi… and we keep spreading the dream… my neighbours all have linux and they love it… its a growing status of happiness over here…Linux brought me back faith in humanity. And today we use Linux to teach poor kids of our community. Thanks so much for everyone involved in this dream.
Mohamad Alji thinks there is room for improvement for beginners:
More mentors to initiate newbies
Anita Gorsha just cannot stop gushing over Linux:
Linux runs the world, what can you wish? ;) Better compatibility with M$, better drivers support, less bugs on desktops
Jeff P. Zacher says that though Linux is younger to Microsoft, it’s way ahead of MS:
Microsoft starting with MS-DOS is 36 this month. I would say Linux isn’t anywhere near 11 years behind. In some cases it is ahead of Microsoft. Gnome 3 anticipated Windows 10’s interface…..
Harsh Lathwal wants Linux to focus on desktop:
more users, more people understanding that freedom is better so its good to use linux plus many many easy to use linux distro out their . the only thing linux have to achive is huge userbase for its desktop part cause its already the best choice in IOT , servers
Joeffel Faelnar wants to see better Bluetooth support:
