Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Better and Safer than any Windows

Ubuntu 18.04 is much more stable than Windoze and is exceedingly less likely to be smitten by a virus/worm/trojan.  I have run both stable and testing versions since '07 and have had no virus protection running in all that time.  The system is no more difficult to learn than each new version of windoze and it is the number one Linux Operating System when measuring growth.


This system is being used by International Banking Systems and Governments around the world because of it's ease of use.  You should try it out.

I like Ubuntu and Linux variants. One main reason why its less susceptible to malware is because of the limited usage. There are far fewer users of Unbuntu than there are of Windows variants, and users of Linux variants tend to be more computer savvy because much of the daily operational things need to be done by hand.


Apple made the mistake of grand-standing on their pulpit some years back, and making the breath-taking statement that their OS was immune to viruses. 


As we've seen, it "just ain't so."


Linux variants are a wonderful option for certain compute platforms and in a number of ways, are indeed more stable -- but if you examine the reasons and causation of Windows problems, you'll find no simple single answer - cross platform issues, video drivers, old software and legacy apps, a plethora of H/W issues and not just a few PEBKAC events.


If Ubuntu were the primary OS for the last 25 or so years, we'd probably be seeing a lot more instability and complaining. It's inescapable - we humans, even those of us with 38 years in engineering, are fallen critters capable of some of the most profanely bad decisions and goofs in our code. It just takes time and exposure to ferret them out.


Now QNX... there's an OS for you!  😉

We use Linux Centos for our Website here at Christforums.


I think it was over 15 years or so ago that I first began using Linux as my home OS. Was just too inconvenient for me back then as even desktop icons were a luxury. I tried using Windows Server OS in the past for our web hosting needs, but the one thing I noted about Linux was the ability to not reboot the system when Windows required frequent rebooting.


I no longer use Linux for my home OS but prefer Windows 10. It is a very transparent OS which allows me to perform tasks without having to learn an OS.

I use both.  So far no viruses on Linux, but I don't use it much anymore.  Win10 is just too good. Had a virus on Windows around 18 years ago, but recovered OK. Repaired a friend'sMac with a virus a couple years ago.
