"Moving a Beginner to Linux"
Posted by News-Bot on November 29th 2005



This article goes over one person's experience when moving computer beginn ers from Windows to Linux. This is not always a smooth transition, but t his this case a computer which was barely working was salvaged and there w as an easy switch from one operating system to the next. Casual computer users almost always use Windows but the article observes that they could just as easily be using a Linux distribution, which would save money and e xtend the life of their computer, while avoiding many of the security haza rds to which new users are most vulnerable. This is not a HOWTO so much as it is a personal experience, but it relays thoughts and observations wh ich all people who find themselves often helping their friends and family with computers will find interesting.
