A stable, (usually) freeware, operating system, limited in usefulness to most users. Good for running servers snd business machines but has major inherent flaws that prohibit it form ever becoming a truly mainstream OS for personal use. Its just too bulky and user-unfriendly to ever gain the popular eye.
Linux is a cool idea, but since its a pain to install and operate, and incompatible with nearly all software on the market, itll never get far beyond the geeks and zealots.

The operating system* little boys employ in a vain attempt to appear computer-savvy due it's perceived complexity, which is really just a convoluted user interface stemming from the lack of higher cognitive ability found in Loonux 'programmers'.

As with any underdog**, you will find a horde of fumbling zealots defending Loonux, who, rather than pose arguments with a rational and verifiable basis, will simply parrot ignorant statements against the operating system(s) that put Loonux to shame (e.g, Windows). More often than not, these lower beings will resort to childish name-calling and irrelevant technical references which further compacts their own ineptitude.

* "Linux" as referred to here is of it's derivatives based on the Linux kernel.

** Windows currently holds 94.3% market share vs Linux's < 1% (As of May, 2009)

An operating system like Windows or Macintosh, owned by Linus Torvaldis, who is obsessed with penguins. His "mascot" dude is a penguin named Tux.
Linux has some cool games and programs.

A poor substitute to the God of computer software: Microsoft Windows.
