finished new installation


I started over and installed Mandrake 10 CE armed with the knowledge gotten over the past few weeks, especially from this forum. Installation/setup went smoothly I got over all the bumps in just a few minutes. Everything works as expected. Then I uploaded 157 updates from a Netherlands mirror. Mandrake is as smooth as sno... nevermind. Samba4 included in the update works without having to configure a thing! Music, (sound), cable internet, even my digital camera plugs in perfectly. I actually like Mandrake a lot better than Win XP

Now what do I do with it.

I don't need a server, or another wordprocessor/spreadsheet/presentation machine. What I want is to take 17 years of Quickbooks files and all my Adobe products and continue my graphics business without that wimp Gates over my shoulder. Where do i sign up?

(I've looked at all the graphics products out there, while good, not great enough for me to devote years to.)

i suppose it depends on how badly you need certain apps. you could try running them under wine or crossover office.
