One thing I can appreciate about Linux is it's flexibility. This is why it's been used in projects like embedded systems, servers, and even NASA missions. However, despite developments to make it a usable desktop OS, it was obviously never intended to be just that, which is one of the reasons why it will never de-thrown Windows. Don't get me wrong, FreeDOS would have an even harder time trying to de-thrown Windows, but at least it was made to be a desktop OS. Because of that, and because it's FOSS, I'm considering switching to it instead of to another distro. Being that it's compatible with the NT kernel, would that mean I'd have the support I'd normally get on Windows? Would I have to install an anti-virus program to protect my computer? Aside from the desktop environment most-likely going to look very dated, what downsides are there when using it? Is there Linux software that's compatible with it? How is the learning curve compared to Linux?
