Here at Komphix, we're big fans of open source software: it's inherently more secure than most proprietary operating systems and it'll often run on older machines, making those pennies stretch a little further and giving your ageing equipment a new lease of life.

Even better, these days you don't have to be a geek to run the latest Linux distros: companies such as Canonical are producing superb operating systems that are stylish, innovative, and easy to use.

Pretty much anything that can be done with a Windows machine or Mac can be done with Linux, often better (and always cheaper!). Music, video, photo management, and fully functioning office applications are all available free of charge and you can even run the Steam gaming platform.

Still not convinced? Why not try one of the many Linux operating systems from the installation disc before taking the plunge or dual booting your pc with Windows and Linux? But if you're still not ready to let Windows go and your PC has enough memory, you can even virualize Linux and run it from within Windows (seriously cool!)

There's never been a better time to try open source and Komphix is keen to promote its adoption. So keen in fact, we'll even install Linux on your system free of charge to help you get started (terms & conditions apply), just contact us for more details.

If you're still not convinced, head over to John's blog, Karmic Odyssey to learn about the benefits of Ubuntu. We look forward to welcoming you to the open source community!
