I once installed Ubuntu, which is a member of the Linux family, on my system.

The OS does all that Windows does, only you don't have to be paying for stuff.

Sadly, after my PC crashed, had to go back to Windows lipsrsealed

The reason why you don't see Linux OS computers much is because most PC come pre-installed with Windows, so you have to install Linux yourself if you want it .
