An "I told Ya So" Update.

I just wanted to share with you a small, personal story.

Yesterday, I talked about having to reboot Windows due to Patch Tuesday. I also contrasted this with how wonderfully secure Linux is. Well, today my brother mentioned how his Windows computer was throwing fits. The browser, when booted, was launching pop-up after pop-up. It appeared a piece of malware had gotten onto his system.

Just as suddenly as it started, a day later, it stopped. He concluded that the recent security patch issued by Microsoft (Patch Tuesday) may have taken care of this problem. But then again, perhaps not. Who knows? In order to find out,he would have to invest in a malware scanning program or update his anti-virus software.

He mentioned that what he really needed was a Linux system!

He, like many others, are starting to realize that Linux is the answer to getting rid of Windows viruses and malware. Linux is secure and stable computing.

Linux is easy to use and easy to get. if you have a spare system, simply download a flavor of Linux and install it. Linux will install, update itself and get you on the web in no time.

If you'd rather not go through the legwork of downloading and installing Linux, then get over to KiowaLinux and buy a system. They are reasonably priced and come pre-configured with Kiowa Linux or Freespire Linux (or both!)

Don't let another year go by fighting Windows viruses and malware. Make it your new year's resolution to Get Linux.

Thanks!:) I enjoy hearing these kind of stories, as well.:) And as Linux becomes more popular, they are becoming more frequent.
