Linux users often go out of their way to find flaws with Microsoft systems. This is because they find the corporate desire to protect intellectual property as a hindrance to their technical tasks. Many of the crashes that these technologists speak of are related to their attempt in dominating the system beyond its design. It’s akin to them beating their head against a brick wall and then telling the rest of us it hurts and wishing the wall would be removed.
Simply put, Linux or Unix is for technical people who want to have near absolute control of the system. In advanced sciences of all types this is often necessary so Linux has it’s place for advanced studies and technical development that really is unable to be beat by Windows because of the corporations desire to protect its intellectual property which acts as a road block for highly technical users.
Many Linux devotees also tend to be control freaks, which is necessary in complicated systems in order to maintain order. If the chaos hamsters were ever let loose into the system they would soon find that their stable system was highly unprotected and flawed in ways they had never imagined.
Linux is for those who enjoy order and control to design and create. While Windows is for accepting the chaos of the world and bringing order to it.
Newbie user, “But if I do that in Windows it says it is a violation and crashes!”
Linux user, “Of course it does and that is why it is a unstable system.”
