I no nothing about Linux just that it is free software and growing. I would like to learn about it and found this forum while looking for answers about Maemo being the software on the Mobile I intend to buy need to know if I can download/upload from this type of software to and from my Windows Vista PC. That is the stuff I have at the momen.I did think of getting a Laptop which could have Linux on it but I need to learn more first. Sorry I do go on. Probs of old age !!!
