Migrating to GNU/Linux in the Good Old Days

| Itâs rather obvious that GNU/Linux is not that other OS but people seem to

| him a year to get his system working as he wanted. It took me installation
| time. I think I installed five machines from scratch in two evenings. It was
| my first installation and the machines were ancient Pentium Pros. In 2000,
| they were slow, but I did not notice any of the problems the authour felt were
| * NO CRASHES â Amen. We both loved that. Thatâs what drove me to GNU/Linux
| and it was like entering the Garden of Eden. This feature alone justified
| the bit of adjustment required and returned blessing many-fold.
| * graphics â mine worked immediately with two lines changed in X11F86.conf
| (or something like that). His was faulty on a newer motherboard.
| * fonts â that other OS was using 800Ã600. GNU/Linux could do 1024Ã768 if
| I recall. He thought the fonts were âuglyâ. I have no idea what he meant.
| Mine were fine.
In a decade, XP turned into Vista 7. And many are still stuck with XP
because Vista 7 is not progress.
