Linear fluorescent lighting has for decades been the workhorse light source for so many applications, thanks to its long life ratings and relatively efficient use of energy. But the emergence of linear LED technology over the last decade or so has really changed the landscape, making buying decisions for linear applications more complex.

We've written a lot about these topics on this blog, but we wanted to make it even easier to understand, so we put together six guides for six different popular linear lighting applications.
- Guidelines for making linear lighting decisions in your application
- Linear LED vs. linear fluorescent pros and cons
- Insider recommendations for winning with tubes
- Tips for deciding between LED tubes and LED fixtures
