It’s about time you try Linux.” is a nice little site listing a few Linux distribution options for beginners (and also more advanced users) and explaining why you should try Linux.

I use Linux less because it’s open source and free software (although that’s a bonus point too), but more because I thinks it’s more user friendly. Installation is fast and simple, updates don’t take ages, I don’t need to crawl the web to find software installers, it isn’t full of bloatware, it runs great on most (even older) hardware etc.

Of course there are use cases where Linux isn’t the best choice (yet), but otherwise it’s definitely worth a try.
