Anyways, Yes, I have played with Linux before, in fact, if I can find a small enough package to download, Redhat's test Linux is too big for me to care to download it.. I am going to install it again to play around with.
what flavors of linux have you tried?
when you say you're looking for a small package, are you referring to installed size or the size before installation (ISO Image size)?
tell us and we can help you find one that meets your needs. course I would recommend going to our other operating systems forum
and starting a new topic there.
OK, that link says that he tried it once but that IE is better.
for that I refer you to my question I asked in an earlier post.
If you made the most noteable browser in the world, like IE, would you also say your product is better????
both MS and LINUX have learned in the past years is that LINUX has made a niche that wasn't where Windows was.. Linux didn't steal anybody's business. fwi
if you were on some of the linux forums, like I am, you would see that people are switching to linux from Windows on a daily basis. and they all have various reasons.its not just security related, which is approximately 80% of the reason they are switching, but other reasons too, such as the better memory management, graphics response, customizing ability, programming language support, and many more reasons too numerous to add.
I just converted 2 of my fathers computers to Ubuntu this weekend. His reason for switching was easy enough. He was tired of updating his computer every week, tired of having to run ad-aware and spybot every week, and tired of defragmenting his hard drive every month. So he now has two laptops with wireless access on Ubuntu. Even my step-mother, who is completely computer illiterate, can understand linux better then Windows.
Yes, Linux has its problems, but when you think about it, what operating system doesn't???
