Question: I'm getting a new laptop for college soon and I'm curious about Linux. I'm planning on getting a MacBook, but with all I'm hearing about Linux, I figure I should at least consider it. I've only ever used Windows computers; I have no experience with Mac (other than using iTunes on my computer) and absolutely no experience with Linux. I'm proficient on the computer -- I use Firefox, Greasemonkey, so I'm not completely out of the loop. I just don't know anything about Linux. So, anyway, I'll be going to college next year with an unfamiliar computer and OS. I'm just not sure what computer or OS. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also, could somebody please tell me some of the advantages of Linux as they might pertain to me (other than it being free)? If I do go Linux, what kind of laptop is advisable?
