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.
