I use Linux for entirely different reasons: because it is a far better
tool for doing my work. I'm basically dysiconic (a word I coined, by
analogy to dyslexia). I simply do not find meaning in most supposedly
"intuitive", icon-driven programs. Linux lets me work with text. If
Microsoft or someone sold a Unix-like OS, I'd buy it. Instead, I get it
free, but have to deal with occasional install hassles.
