"Linux" the OS is not really graphical. It's just the OS that "X" runs on top of and can be anything a person puts their mind to.
Or you can boot Linux and see a character 80x25 screen.
But after that amazing statement, many will run X, select some graphic shell (KDE, Gnome, other) and from there on out it starts to look like Mac/PC in many ways.
I currently use Windows at home, and Macintosh at school. I find things I like in both, but not being elidgible for a job (only 13 creates a problem) makes it hard for me to get both; let alone that its sensible. Then came to mind: Linux. After searching the web, I came to no avail. So in desperation, I am looking into forums to find out about Linux.
First off, how does it compare to Windows, feature wise. Next, likewise to Macintosh. I constantly hear about security, but thatt doesnt bother me as I have no extremely private information.
Last off, please rate the different features. Any and all posts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
