Introduction to Linux

This is a basic introduction to Linux. It answers two questions: what is GNU/Linux? And what it can offer its users? See the advantages for yourself.

And if you like, Subscribe! :)

A few key features I forgot to mention in the video:

1. GNU/Linux operating systems are MUCH less susceptible to viruses -- HUGE plus! You don't have to pay annually for any antivirus software or worry about your PC data being compromised in ways that Windows is vulnerable.

2. GNU/Linux operating systems use less system resources than Windows, allowing most machines to run much faster with GNU/Linux installed. Much. Faster.

TRY IT! - For those looking to switch to Linux from Windows or give it a try without installing it on your machine. Ubuntu is Free Your Mind's primary GNU/Linux distribution of choice. You can download and learn about this brilliant OS at http://ubuntu.com/desktop .
