Before reading the 10 things I Hate about Linux, check out the 10 things I Love about Linux.


  1. I do not want to use the command prompt.
  2. User interface doesn’t compare to Windows.
  3. I want to be able to use my computer, not spend days trying to figure out how to use it.
  4. OpenOffice does not hold a candle to Microsoft Office. I would like to see a robust Microsoft Office for the Linux platform.
  5. It is not Windows.
  6. Linux is not as user friendly as Windows.
  7. Too many versions of Linux.
  8. Lack of hardware support.  
  9. Lack of hardware manufacturer support.
  10. Installations can be tricky. They are not out of the box load and go. There is always some sort of configuration involved.
