Which are probably the interests for me to change for Linux?
According to me, OS Linux:
- manage the memory in a better way,
- are deprived of M$ spying softwares, which require some memory and processor activity...
- are really less prone to the virus attacks (I have an antivirus, but i use it occasionally and exclusively to clean the Windows hard drives of people around me
- propose some high quality free games and all kinds of free and high quality programs,
- The more important: allow you to take part in a humanistic vision of data processing... the right for all to reach Informations and the culture at the lower costs, not at the lower quality.

You can support the free projects you use financially, or by a intellectual help.
In my case, i donate monthly 10 US$ to the Debian community, and from time to time to the projects i use (openoffice...)
I freely install some Debian or Mandriva OS when people ask for it, and I help them, freely. That is also a way to support these humanistic projects

I'm sorry for my bad english, which could be called frenchglish i think ...
