My journey from Windows to Linux

Posted by ClifNotes • Apr 2008 • permalinkWindows Tips


I've been wanting to set up my own PC with Linux, just like zridling does here in this article. For those of us who love free software, a Linux machine is a great way to get rid of our dependence on Microsoft payware.


Quote from zridling

urlwolf gave me a good idea to document my switch from Windows to GNU/Linux. If you decide to read this ongoing series, it was his idea from the start. I've wanted to "make the switch" since 1998 when Corel came out with its own version of Linux. That lasted about two weeks before I shelved that junk. In the meantime, I've toyed with various Linux distros, but knew I was never going to switch, so at best it was a convenient distraction. I'm no expert, so I'll be learning as this series unfolds.
