7 wonders of the Linux world!

| 6.Free support: Linux is open source and it 
| has a real community of users and developers 
| who really are out there to help you. If you 
| run into a problem you can head over to the 
| forums or even talk to the developers who 
| will be glad to help you.
| 7.More customization options: In windows or 
| Mac if you change the wallpaper you will 
| still end up with pretty much the same 
| desktop. In Linux itâs you choice. There are 
| several customization options. You even 
| choose different desktop environments such as 
| Gnome and KDE on a single system. You just 
| have to install it them.


Linux Support?

| This isnât a perfect solution for my 
| particular need â Iâm still looking for 
| something more like media hive but with 
| transcoding-on-the-fly, and a little cleaner 
| client UI â but thatâs not the point here.
| The point is so many times Iâve seen Linux 
| users express interest in a port only to be 
| dismissed out of hand. I was very glad to see 
| a developer make the effort.
| I also found it funny that the Linux users 
| and the developer quickly agreed that a CLI-
| only version was just fine and dandy!

| Then I had an idea. What if this problem was somehow associated with Windows?
| Linux is an alternative operating system that is freely available. I had
| squirreled away several discs (bonuses from British computer magazines) that
| let you boot up to Linux from a CD without the need to actually install it.
| Guess what?
| My computer ran with Linux and didn't shut down.
| That would seem to indicate that the computer hardware is just fine, right?
| I had a copy of the new Windows 7 operating system ready to go; perhaps
| whatever incompatibilities my L100 had with Vista would be rectified with
| Windows 7!
| So, I started installing Windows 7, and things seemed to go pretty
| smoothly... at the start.
| But after 51 minutes, guess what? The installation shut down!
| When I pressed the power button, the "Windows Error Recovery" screen popped
| up.
