Is it true that Linux is mainly suitable for use on high-performance servers by large organizations but that it is not well suited for desktop or notebook computers?
This was formerly the case. However, major progress has occurred during the past few years on making Linux suitable for use on desktop and notebook computers by people who are not computer experts (including by beginners and casual users). For example, applications have become better integrated with each other, operations have become more intuitive, fonts have improved (i.e., are less jagged and more closely resemble printed text) and installation of the operating system and application programs has become easier. This trend is resulting in a growing number of individuals, businesses and government agencies using Linux as their main computer operating system.
