Re: Win 7 vs Linux
said by carpetshark3:LOL. Your concerns are understandable and valid.
So far, I haven't heard about any Linux distro wanting to be all and do all.
Linux can probably set your thermostat, program your coffeemaker, etc.. as well as Windows and now Apple say they can.
I really don't want one system trying to be all in all - I find that too much like Big Brother knowing what's best.
Linux can do or be as much as, or as little as (specifically targeted) as users desire it to be. So, for example, it's up to distro devs, manufacturers, smartphone makers, automobile companies, musicians, scientists, filmmakers, recording studios, private end users, etc. to make and use (or not use )Linux as they wish. Linux is under user control.
A glance at DistroWatch will provide you with an overview of the variety of current available Linux distros.
