Hello. I am thinking about switching from Windows to Linux. I have heard that Linux is more secure, but have never used it before. I was wondering if any of my Windows- compatible software will work on Linux. I have Microsoft Age of Empires I and II, Microsoft Office XP, Blizzard Entertainment Star Craft Brood War, and some other software that I would like to use on Linux, but am not sure if it is compatible with it. Also, I am on a home network. Will the network still operate if one computer is on Linux and the rest are on Windows?
