Trying Linux

Well, the next few days should be interesting. As I write this I am installing Linux on one of my desktop computers. It’s at the far end of my wireless network here at home, so it’s kind of slow downloading.

I picked the Ubuntu distribution, as the website promised easy to install. Since I’m not extremely computer literate, we’ll see about “easy.”

I like the idea behind Linux…i.e. free 🙂 Don’t like the idea behind Microsoft…i.e. the making of the world’s richest man. 😦

Seriously, the idea that hundred or maybe thousands of people around the country or world can make a good living supporting a free operating system sounds better than sending all that money to Seattle or wherever.

About the word of me
Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.
