How and why I transitioned to Linux, how you can, too

Let me briefly tell my Linux story. If you’re thinking about moving to Linux, and wondering how you’d do so, it might give you some pointers and inspiration.

Larry Sanger is the co-founder of Wikipedia. In this article he discusses how he started using Linux on a day-to-day basis on his desktops in his personal and professional life. He also gives a couple pointers on how to do it if you want to follow his lead! In short:

  1. Install Ubuntu in Virtualbox
  2. Install your favorite browser and email client
  3. ???
  4. Profit

If you don’t like it, try another distro.
