linux-xp-1

Well you use Windows until some virus hits the OS and things begin to crash and finally you have to re-install the damn windows again. You ask yourself, “Heck, I had an antivirus software too which could not defend my PC against viruses either”. Average user re-installs windows once in a month. Expert user will re-install windows after 4 to 6 months due to inevitable viruses/malware/adware/trojans attacks.

Have you heard anybody using Linux complaining about viruses? Less people are using Linux, so less people are creating viruses for Linux or not at all. Or may be these are Linux users, who are creating viruses for windows users! Anyways Linux is virus free. I know, I know, Linux is a D3vil – tough to master – not for average users. I am not suggesting you to switch to Linux. Still we got a solution for everybody. Its Linux + Windows.
Yep! Meet Linux-XP. An operating system that everybody can use, withOUT viruses.
