Must remember to press "Submit Thread"

A surprising opensource PDF editor.

Posted 04-10-2012 at 12:38 AM by stretchedthin

Old laptops love Linux

Posted 04-09-2012 at 11:46 AM by error_401
Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on 2 own laptops and have installations running on 3 others.

One is a 5 year old Toshiba. It came to me with a very ugly virus, trojan, worm infection. Unable to get rid of it under...
