[News] Windows Journalist Preston Gralla Gives GNU/Linux a Try

Hash: SHA1

Giving an old Windows hand some Linux advice

,----[ Quote ]
| I see my colleague Preston Gralla is looking for the best Linux for a Windows 
| pro. That's a good question with several good answers. 
| Preston's son Gabe gave him some excellent advice when he recommended Wubi. 
| This is the Windows' world easiest Linux installer. With it, you install 
| Ubuntu 8.04 just like it was any other Windows application. Download it, 
| click the install button and let it rip.    
| [...]
| Good luck to you Preston, and to all the rest of you who want to give Linux a 
| try on your Windows PCs.  


Top 4 Alternatives to Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Considering the success of Ubuntu Linux as a distribution of the open source 
| operating system, it has become clear that locating good alternatives to this 
| release is becoming increasingly difficult. With that said, I've decided to 
| round up the best candidates that might serve as a viable alternative so you 
| might be able to partake in the Linux experience without having to relying 
| exclusively on one distribution.

Friday afternoon but not Saturday. I could do it pretty much any time the
following week."

The "ooww" stops now - goodbye Windows, hello Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| I know there are lots of Linux distros out there but I chose Ubuntu because 
| I'm a Linux newbie. If you know your way around Windows then it seems to be 
| very easy to pick up.  


Facing the full horror of Windows Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| So far, Transit has been using Vista Business full-time for a fortnight.
| And so far, we've found nothing that works better than in Windows XP,
| dozens of things that are annoyingly different without being a
| functional improvement, and several things that work at best
| intermittently and at worst not at all. On the whole, we wish
| we'd never moved. 


Bye bye Windows I don't need you anymore

| I have some free time over Easter so maybe the holidays will be the
| beginning of a new and enduring relationship, as well as the
| finalization of a long overdue divorce.
