As confissões de um fã de GNU/Linux

O autor do blog Think Thick, um fã fervoroso de GNU/Linux, escreveu um post, em forma de confissão, sobre as 10 coisas que convém saber antes de mudar para GNU/Linux. Enquanto algumas poderão ser apenas o ponto de vista do autor, outras são verdade em todos os aspectos. Veja-se esta:

You will not find Photoshop for Linux, you will not find Microsoft Office for Linux, you will not find iTunes for Linux.

This solution, however, will require in most instances, some work (read command line) from the user.
