Greetings to all in Linuxland,
I am another newbie who is wanting to change from Win XP to Linux cos I'm fed up with all microsofts spying, before switching I've a couple of questions I'd really appreciate some help with. Currently I have a home network with a PII-350 on Win XP and a P200 using Win 98SE on a cross over cable. I want to change the PII-350 to Linux but I'm not sure what I need to replace my existing set up.
I'm using Incredimail for e-mails
Easy CD Creator 5 for burning MP3 and .Wav music CD's
Expressit for making cd covers
Nortons for Firewall & Antivirus
MS Office 2000 for letters/spreadsheets etc
Win MX for file sharing
I think I'm right in saying Linux could network with the P200 to share a dial-up modem and Star Office can do all Office 2000 does.
So the advice I'd appreciate is which Distribution would best match my needs and what other software would I need to replace all the above.
Many thanks in advance to all who may help
