Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

In recent years, GNU / Linux has become the operating system accessible to all users, which have proven their virtues: stability, security, customizability … and safely: most distributions can be tested without installation.

No. 1 Best user community

Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

Okay, you have your favorite distro installed on the computer of your mother, and now there, watching and waiting brazenly do know it all and know what to do either. Despite what it may seem, the computer is not an exact science and will soon need to do more than write emails, surf the web or watch old episodes of “Turolenses the world.” And that’s where the community comes in.

When your mother runs into any setback, simply type into Google your problem and the name of your distro, add quotes and get results of other users who have already resolved the problem. Or write to one of the countless user forums and wait for people desviva help.

The good vibes in the community of Linux users have to do with the great altruism burden associated with their identity, and is a very pleasant surprise for any newcomer to GNU / Linux. Your mother will feel welcomed and not have to call you on Sundays at 11 pm to ask you to go home urgently to solve you the ballot.

No. 2 More secure and stable than other

Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

Maybe your mother does not understand the full extent of the rail equipment safety with GNU / Linux, but enjoy its advantages. After all, not only is that less error windows or on rare need sometimes restart the computer because you are inoperative, but appear system permits access to any Linux distribution installed by default allow your mother touch the fairness of the system and, therefore, dismiss the risk of deleting important information or files. Not to mention the virtual absence of the happy virus …

So you can finally tell your mother what she – and millions like her – always wanted to hear: Luci, you can play anywhere. Do not worry, you can not break anything, you enjoy. And that is worth its weight in gold. The weight of usability, not the weight of your mother.

# 3 There is everything here, and all good

Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

Do not exageraras when you tell your mother that brand for Linux, there are all kinds of software.

Whatever your taste, habits, preferences and needs … will be a program for it. And not only that, but almost certainly, a user will be translated into Castilian software (or Catalan, Galician, Basque …) so completely altruistic.

If your mother has told you a smarty anyone – your brother-safe – that Linux is difficult to install software that is beginning to ask thousands of files and additional libraries to be installed separately, check it destroys the argument by presenting one of the managers packages that are already integrated approach and a world of end user programs, perfectly filtered, classified and even reviews of other users. You can spend hours there stirring the dead like a software store sale!

# 4 Always have a distro for you

Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

For programmers, for gamers, for musicians, for architects, for … do not care what your mother with your computer, there will always be a distribution (ie, a version of Linux that changes the included software desktop and other components) that will fit her like a glove and provide programs and the look she wanted.

When recycling the oldest computers in the house, Linux is also unbeatable, with light and fast distributions that seem to bring out the best of a processor that had already been sentenced to die. It is the occasion to mark you somewhat with your mother and give her an old computer to make your first steps with computers and the Internet. To choose the most suitable distribution is a particularly interesting place DistroWatch.com also ideal for keeping abreast of updates, new distros, versions, etc.

You can also get an idea of the variety on offer by reading our article 5 Linux distributions for 5 types of professionals. Hopefully other operating systems offered half chances when choosing a desk and a starting point, including software, to install and start enjoying.

No. 5 Free and free (or not)

Five arguments to convince your mother you install Linux

The last reason for your mother – she really grasped – Complete decide because you put a Linux computer in your life will love: it’s free. The vast majority of the software that will find for GNU / Linux, including the operating system itself is free. And, in a high percentage, it is also open source.

Not that your mother will start modifying code, compile and distribute their own applications – but you never know what is taught in the courses of the Day Care Centers – but as an ethical approach is very attractive for many users.

But if that does not care for your mother (we suspected) Make it clear that there are “proprietary” and commercial software. Return to mention the pocket and let him clear to your mother that the fact that Linux and free software is almost always not imply that the rate of updates, new features and enhancements that are received is below. On the contrary, the developer community is extremely active and productive, so keeping up is fast, easy … and free, as we have said.

Top 10 games of 2014 ... and 2015, according to E3

Sure miss some titles in this list of the best games of 2014 and 2015, according to E3. It is because we have focused on those that promise innovation and new ways to play.

At E3 2014, a handful of highly anticipated titles were presented, but they are still very green. We have just seen a cinematic, or not even that, no clue about its gameplay. This is the case of Uncharted 4 Halo 5: Guardians, or Mass Effect 4.

Others are very promising, and it sure will be fun and will sell tons, but have yet to demonstrate that incorporate interesting news: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Evil Within, Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age Inquisition, The Sims 4, Star Wars Battlefront, Bloodborne, Legends Fable, Forza Horizon 2 Sunset Overdrive, Alien Isolation, Little Big Planet 3, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 4, etc.

There are also very appealing remakes, but they are still a facelift of something already played: Halo Master Chief Collection for Xbox One, The Last of Us for PS4, Grim Fandango, GTA V for PC and next-gen …

What is clear is that we have many hours of quality game ahead for the next 18 months. Just choose your hardware, and get ready to enjoy …
