This is what happens when your typical Linux advocates decide to build their own distro – Swift Linux, which consists of a ghastly-looking official website that reeks low production value, a respin that adds little to the original, and an N-point “Linux vs. Windows” list that reads like a typical Katherine Noyes self-plagiarized puff piece. You are, however, highly encourged to relieve your thirteen-year-old of her Linux virginity via this specially-made Taylor Swift Linux, which is sure as hell a timely replacement for when she has finally got sick of that Hannah Montana thing. Don’t forget, kids – unless what you are after is getting your stuff done, there is always something for everyone in Linux!

Poorly design site, poorly design mind.

Windows just isn’t ready for the desktop, but Linux is.

One reason is the need for special authorization to change the system in Linux, which malware doesn’t have.

I don’t think the guy has really used Windows.

*On the other hand, it takes at least an hour to install Windows, which is very spartan out-of-the-box. Then you have to manually install drivers and software for your applications. *

Nor does he understand that majority of the people just use the OS that is already installed on the machine.

Installing software is more convenient AND safer in Linux.

Most of my software for Windows is installed from disc, that is safer than using the repositories.

*Second, Linux is free while purchasing Windows is expensive. Third, open source software is free while proprietary software is expensive. *

Again, most people don’t go out and buy Windows, they buy a machine that comes with Windows.

LMAO, this site looks like it was made before the invention of HTML. I 've seen txt’s and nfo’s that look better that this.

Also, Windows users can get their Hannah montana version windows too, just by downloading a theme. No need to change half of the OS, or download a new OS. But, Windows users just don’t want to.

Look like he needs some education on web design.

Agree. Looks like some neckbeard (the one who designed the site) needs to be told why it’s ok to use more than 2 images on a site, because it’s not the golden age of dial up anymore
