Linux: Better than Windows?

Have you ever been frustrated with Windows? It frequently shuts down, crashes, and gets a crapload of viruses. Aren’t you the least bit upset that Windows doesn’t do jack, and it’s overpriced? Maybe you want to try something new, but all you’ve heard of is Windows (XP or Vista, they both suck), or Mac/Apple (Which also majorly sucks)

What are you supposed to do? Are you just going to sit there and suffer from a super-shitty Operating System?
