With Linux I can filter data I get from the internet much more thoroughly, Enabling me to remove malicious programs before they have a chance to attack my computer. Its also open source meaning I don't have to pay for programs.

Try to build a friggin gcc cross-compiler for a mips64 vr4300 processor on cygwin or mingw. You can't do it.

it is a great operating system for servers, supercomputers, research, coding, and most importantly not being spied on by the NSA

I don't get why people use Linux and then use emulators of other operating systems. Why bother having to use an emulator when you could just be running that OS in the first place? I mean Linux has its uses, it's a great idea, but I'm not sure I see the point in it for regular use.

I used to run windows and switched to Linux as my main os after having so many problems with windows.
It's a wonderful enviroment for developers and anyone that just wants full control over what goes into their system. Sure sometimes you have to work with it a little to get things to work but you learn so much about your system from those expirinces.
As for using emulators like Wine. Its because most of the time we have to out of need not really want. For instance a lot of college courses require you use Photoshop or Microsoft Word for your classes. If you have friends you might want to play a Windows exclusive game with them etc.
As for it being a good idea it's more than just a great idea it literally is one of the main reasons the web is as big and wonderful as it is. A lot of Phone OSes such as Android use the Linux Kernel. Linux is a bigger part of everyday life than most people realize.

I find it easier to code in Linux. Also it's kinda just fun to use.

I'm actually a Linux user myself.
