Xgl+Beryl is COOL,
Useful features like virtual desktops,
Software runs better and faster on it.. (Blender)
Better software- (AmaroK p0wns wmp)
Customizeable
free (Xp Home upgrade I own- A gift from 3 years ago)
FAST development.. (Look at how OLD Xp is!)


I wouldn't give it up for windows if you PAID me
Why do you own a 7900gt then? Linux doesn't let you play graphics intensive games.

Cause it's hella fast at internet stuff once it's all set up. Seriously, I used to get better speeds on bittorrent when I was using a PII 350, running mandrake 10.1, than I do now using Windows XP on my current rig...lol

EDIT: Oh, and it PWNS at multitasking. I'd have like 12 windows open....let's see your Windows PII 350 do that!

But in all Honesty, I don't use Linux right now...just XP.

When I get a second rig, one of them will probably dual boot a flavour of linux...

Linux native games are being made more graphics intensive all the time! Although 7900GT IS overkill.. I cant wait until I can use it for gpgpu in linux....

And when I want to play a windows game I boot into XP- ZI am in XP about 5% of the time..

LESS than that now that I fold in linux 24/7....

I like the flexibility and control over the system. I also like the ideas behind the Open Source Movement and the GPL act. Also, its free and I feel comfortable using it.

EDIT: oh yeah, I like the terminal too. I like to press tab and have it fill everything in
