Am I ready to switch to Linux? No.
Is Linux ready for me? No...it doesn't have a taskbar that behaves similar to the one in Windows, and until it does, it's not ready for full time use by me.
1. You’re Tired of Paying for Software
I buy very little software. Most of what I use is freeware.
2. You’re Tired of Upgrading Hardware
You will still eventually have to upgrade hardware, no matter what OS you run.
3. You’re Tired of Malware
What's that? I never get any.
4. You’ve Seen One Too Many Patch Tuesdays
Actually, I have seen one too many "reboot just to make sure Ubuntu is up to date, update it, then reboot back to Windows".
5. You Don’t Have the Time
Time for what? Oh yeah...see my answers to #4 and #6.
6. You Like Speed
Ubuntu is actually slower than Windows for me. Slower to startup, slower to find the shortcuts to the apps I want to run, slower to start the apps, slower to close them, slower to find valid info on how to do something I want to do, slower to shut down, slower to download and install updates, slower, slower, slower.
7. You Like Sharing
Sharing what, exactly? I can't think of anything I'd want to share that could be shared better, faster, or easier on Linux.
8. You Don’t Actually Love Internet Explorer
I don't, and that's why I can install plenty of other browsers and pick the one I like best. I currently have 10 different browsers installed and except for Firefox, none of them have Linux versions, to my knowledge.
9. You Want to Be in Control
I am in control.
10. You’re One of a Kind
And so is my Windows desktop.
