First off I'm not really a tech-whiz or anything but I was having a nosy around and decided to download the latest Linux OS onto my PC, using the Windows Installer so I can removed whenever etc. Anyway at first I panicked because I couldn't find or my old files, but sorted that (they were in a folder some place where all the windows stuff went). Anyway I was wondering, what are your thoughts on Linux compared to Windows, in a way a tech noob would understand?
As far as I've gathered a recent Steam client has been released for Linux but I can't play my games on it, but that doesn't bother me that much. In terms of other software what limitations are there and all that?
