Linux has some pretty slick features. These allow you to customize your desktop in so many ways. so much so, that no two Linux desktops will look alike!
for instance, one of the neat things that I like about Linux and the KDE desktop is the mousover effects. Simply by enabling mousover effects, when you pass your mouse over the bottom tool panel icons, information pops up.
Linux gives you so many ways to manage, display, and get information. And it's these little touches and customizations that make Linux so user friendly. Linux makes computing a more pleasurable and easy experience. Give it a try and customize your own desktop!
