Hello from Linux!
« on: July 05, 2005, 10:23:13 AM »
Just curious, anyone else using a Linux based OS?

I just started using Mandrake 10.1 a few days ago and I love it!

Is it easy to use? I want to switch away from Win 2K...it crashes often and I'm sick of it.
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.

i'll admit it's not as user friendly as windows. It's taking me a bit of time to learn how the linux system works. The most usuer friendly out there right now is Ubuntu Linux. My suggesstion would be to dual boot your system with Windows and Linux until you're comfy enough to let go of windows. I've split my hard drive right in half. 20Gigs for Windows, 20 for Linux.

Just google ubuntu linux and start researching. It's a lot of fun if you're a computer/tennis geek like myself. :)
