To linux that is. :wink:

Figured I'd try it out and see what all the fuss is about since we have an older desktop that's coming to us with Linux apparantly installed. We'll see what I think of it after a few days. So far, quick!!!!

As I understand it, Linux has a lot of free programns available through GNU. I have used GIMP, a photoshop clone, and Open Offce, now Apache Open Office, which I cannot get to load on W 8.

I'm just getting into the system. So far to me, it's a no frills basic system with your basic browsing, email, word processor. I haven't dabbled into the add on apps yet but so far this system is lightning fast compared to windows 7. I have it installed as a secondary operating system. When I reboot, it now gives me the option of using either this one or windows 7. I could get used to it in time. Graphics are very basic though and appear to be more like those found in windows 95/98. They do the job though.

What flavor of Linux are you trying?
I like the command line option in linux. I don't have to hunt for the widget to right click on to make something work. Instead i can type the command on the command line and get the job done quickly.

http://www.die.net is a kewl resource if you are looking for command line options.

I have Ubuntu on another laptop. It's something cool to play around with. I should use it more. If you find any good freeware apps. please post them so I can give them a try.

GNU is a freeware source that does a lot with LINUX. Much if not all works on Windows as well. I use GIMP and Open Office, but Open Office is now Apache Open Office, and this is the one that is giving me problems loading on W-8
