Jim Monroe switches to Linux

Jim Monroe, author of Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask, Angry Young Spaceman, Everyone in Silico and An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil is in the process of switching over to Linux:

With Windows I would assume the problem was me — my settings, my hardware, whatever — but with Linux I immediately assume it’s the OS. Its a rare glimpse in myself of the status quo tendency to trust the powerful.

While Windows routinely makes me feel like a dumb-ass, Linux often leaves me frustrated at its glitches. My experiences with MacOSX, on the other hand, just make me feel warm and fuzzy. Linux has been my primary desktop machine for over 6 years now, but my next piece of hardware will no doubt bear the Apple logo.
