  1. Hi There,

    Fully agree on Linux Interview Question & Answers. We’re seeing a lot of projects tackle big complex problems but few seem to have taken into consideration and in particular reasons to adopt.

    Should I install Linux and if so what is the right one for gaming, coding and in generall, user friendly? Is it fast? Is it reliable? What distro should I use for the things I said above?
    Excellent tutorials - very easy to understand with all the details. I hope you will continue to provide more such tutorials.

    Many Thanks,
