Thumbs up my linux experience


Hello friends,

I am a new member in this forum, I am also sort of new comer to linux. and this is exactly what i want to speak about. I was a user of the windows siries 95.....to infinity. one day without a plan I stumbled to linux. it appeared to me in the beginning like a rounded, closed thing with no clue on it as to access the treasure inside it. the next stage was when I have found the entrance and once inside you dont know how to evaluate and do anything with it. then a little persistance and walking into the corridors linux becomes a beautiful wild horse in need of a good trainer. each stage came with its rewards and few disappointments. wow.....I will never go back to the MS thing any more. I have actually no time trying to train my horse.

The only me stopping me from hozing my Windows partition is that I have some games which don't run under WineX yet.

On the other hand, I have some Windows games which won't run under Windows XP but run great under WineX - Discworld II for example.

I am unfortunate in that I cannot rule my home as a dictator, otherwise I would blast away winblows like it were working for Darth Vador. But until I can convince my wife that Linux is a FARRRR better OS than Winbloze, I am stuck with a dual boot system.

But I am slowly bringing her back away from the dark side...

Now see, I have friends that use my PC. They have no choice but to use Linux.

Oh sure, a few gripe that they want Windows, but they do not get it. I figure it is my computer, so i can be a dictator.

But more importantly, when dealing with "users", you want a security system installed!

Actually, I found some games run better under regular WINE, than WINEX... The WINEX CVS tree looks messed up to me... I guess TransGaming is too busy counting its revenue from the "memberships" for doing some actual development.
