Why do you use Linux over Windows?

Interested to hear people's reasons.

I'll start:

* Less bloatware (usually)
* Less commonly targeted for malware
* Easier to find a compiler for code
* Better for programming in general

It's all about laziness - always on top is built in to every window manager and select -> middle click copy/paste while retaining the actually copied clipboard is great.

Findecanor:
Because it is my computer, not Microsoft's.

always on top is such a helpful thing sometimes, and I didn't know about that copy and pasting feature and i love it! surprised i'd never heard about it before. thanks!

love this one and completely agree! i think it also sort of fits under my point about bloatware except in this case the bloatware is software that gives microsoft access to parts of our computer in some cases.
