I have been a Linux users for 4 years and to me, Linux is not only an operating system but also a hobby and lifestyle. Through Linux, I have gained a lot of knowledge, experiences and lessons and in this article, I want to share with everybody the wonderful things I have learned from using Linux. These lessons can be applied in almost everything in our daily life, from technology-related thing to meaningful stuffs like love and spirituality.
The best things in life are free
This saying has been repeated many times but this is extremely true when you use Linux. Having a lot of money is good but more than often, you do not need to spend your money to be happy. This is the first lesson I learned after I discovered the magnificent world of Linux, where you can get almost everything for free.
Sharing is caring and it is very enjoyable
The basic concept of Linux is that you share everything so other people can use and then improve it. When using Linux, people not only share the applications and the source code but also their knowledge and passion. And when you share stuffs with other people, you also gain a lot of knowledge, experience and of course some new friends. With selfless dedication, the entire community of Linux have contributed a lot to the development of technology. When thousands of developers from around the world share their effort and knowledge not because their main priority is to earn money, but because they just want to create something that can be useful to others without expecting something in return. That is indeed the beauty of sharing.
Patience and persistence will lead to success
I bet everybody already know perseverance is one of the most important things to achieve success, but not many people have really experienced it. I still remember all the troubles I faced when I tried to install Ubuntu and then Arch Linux years ago. But I managed to endure all the headaches and never gave up and that makes me really proud of myself. Linux may seem scary at first, but the truth is it’s more reliable, faster, safer and more secure than Windows. Just be patient to overcome your fear and you will realize how beautiful and wonderful Linux is. And of course, Im also proud to be a Linux users for many year and I am really happy to see Linux is getting better and better.
