Linux or Windows?
« on: June 17, 2009, 02:36:03 AM »
Hi everyone !
Lately, i have been really considering switching to Linux.
I have done a little bit of research on my own about Linux.
I am somewhat familiar with what Linux is about.

I am sure there are a few Linux People in here.
If you are that person ...

1. What made you decide to use Linux
2. Do you Dual Boot with Windows as well?
3. How long did it take for you to get the hang of it?
4. 1 - 10 .. 10 being the hardest .. for a person with no Programming experience.. Rate how hard it would be for a beginner to use Linux for the everyday tasks.
5. Do you have a favorite Website you recommend for Linux?
6. What version are you using and why?
7. What version do you recommend for a beginner?
8. Anything else you want to add that may be of interest ?

I am thinking about Dual Booting with Linux and Vista. I do not have Linux installed yet, only vista.

Do you have any experience with Programming?

I'm familiar with Java but i hear Pearl is very handy with Linux..

You don't need any programming experience.
Most distro's come with a GUI (graphical user interface), so most things you will ever need to do on a daily basis (for normal users) can be done without knowing any terminal commands.

if you want to program with it pearl, python, C and C++ are some good languages.

i think these are the best distro's to try out:
- ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com

- linux-mint http://www.linuxmint.com

- opensuse http://www.opensuse.org


I don't have windows so i don't dual boot with windows :)

And is it easy to change Windows for Linux? I can't imagine myself using something else that Windows!

I had dual OS some times back but it slow down the system performance.

I use PCs and Macs on a regular basis. I'm an electrical engineer and do all kinds of things and I'd have to say that there's NO way I'd make a PC my primary computer - they're crap compared to Macs.
