Linux Computers

What is a Linux computer?
I work on Microsoft computers, but I primarily use Linux computers.
Similar to Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac, Linux is an operating system.
I began switching over to Linux several years ago and cannot remember any of my Linux computers crashing.
I get regular notifications about security updates and have a choice of when I want to install the updates.
Not only do I get all the basic office and creative software I need, it is all free.
Sound too good to be true, and want to learn more about Linux computers?
