Linux Migration for the Home PC User, Part 7: Making Adjustments
I Ditched Windows...and, So Can You
,----[ Quote ]
| The Verdict â Linux serves 90% of my computer needs. Only on occasion must I
| boot into Windows. Fortunately, dual-booting is now a built-in Linux feature,
| so readers shouldn't be intimated if they don't know how to run two operating
| systems. Also, supposedly, there is Windows emulation software (such as Wine
| or Virtual Box), which may completely eliminate my need to boot into
| Windows â I am yet to figure out how to do this. Aside from these minor
| hiccups, my verdict is clear: Thumbs up, way up.
| Why Didn't I go Mac?
| 1). Its Expensive â Should Linux fail to meet my needs, I suppose I can sell
| a Kidney to buy a $1500+ laptop. But, I'd sooner avoid unnecessary expenses
| in this never-ending recession.
| 2). I still run some Windows-only programs.
| 3). I've lost confidence in Apple. Their fascist iphone app store approval
| system and continued reliance on Digital Rights Management (DRM) for Itunes
| makes me wary of adopting products that don't allow for flexibility.
