David Versus Goliath
A free operating system supported by volunteers around the world poses the first real threat to Windows.

Network administrators like Linux because of its built-in networking support. Don't forget, Linux is primarily a network OS, designed to connect computers together in strange and wonderful ways. It boasts full support for the TCP/IP set of protocols, the standard used to network computers over the Internet. And even if you don't plan to get on the Internet [why ever not?], you can use it cobble a home, office or university network together without too much trouble. And you can even use it to wire an entire network up to the Internet using a single Internet account ! [just BTW, TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol - try saying that with your mouth full ;) ]

Windows diehards like Linux because, in addition to it's own [extremely stable] ext2fs filesystem, it also allows you to access DOS and Windows files, and read data from CD-ROMs, floppy disks, Zip drives and other devices not even invented yet ;) And Linux also comes with something called the X-Windows System - essentially a graphical interface to the operating system, similar to Windows and using many of the same familiar menus and buttons.

The eternally-searching-for-Mr.-or-Miss.-Right-breed like Linux because it is extremely compatible with all existing standards...and although it can sometimes reduce you to tears, it'll never give up on you ;)
