Operating systems: upgrade or reinstall? guilt or pleasure?
,----[ Quote ]
| With Linux there is no guilt in installing a
| new distribution. If I screw it up, I start
| over. If I want to try Fedora instead of
| Ubuntu, I just wipe the disk and try it out.
| No guilt and no fear.
| There is no user validation or software
| activation for the common Linux desktop
| operating systems. I can install it once or
| ten times. You get the idea.
| Itâs very liberating.
Are You Getting Sick Of Microsoft Windows? Itâs Time To Give Ubuntu Linux A Whirl
,----[ Quote ]
| About 18 months ago, I had another
| disastrous crash on my PC that caused me to
| lose a host of photos, music and documents.
| Luckily I had a backup of most of my
| documents on an external disk. So I wasnât
| too concerned by this. I had experienced
| many crashes on Windows before and usually
| I was able to recover most of my documents
| and restore the system back to normal
| without too much effort.
| This time was different however and to my
| horror, I discovered that Windows had
| somehow corrupted my external disk as well.
| I had lost everything and was pretty angry
| about it.
| I tried a number of data recovery programs
| but most of the files wore gone. Forever.
| What a disaster! At that point I decided
| that I would look for another alternative
| to windows and I thought I would give Linux
| another try.
| I was astounded!
| Within 10 minutes my computer was running
| Ubuntu Linux without even having to install
| it! This was a âLive-CDâ and it can be used
| without installing to hard disk â it can be
| run from a cd without affecting your
| computer at all.
