  2. One needs to be completely tension free while using Linux. This is because there are no problems such as malware, Trojans etc. Since most of the malwares are made especially for windows. But these malwares won’t damage Linux and other alternatives.
  3. Again, you wish that your computer remains fast, effective as well as efficient. And the most important function you want your computer to perform is surfing the internet. And as compared to windows operating system, Linux is truly a helpful and effective alternative.
