After intending to switch for years (and downloading 3 or 4 sets of installation disks), I've finally actually got linux up and running at home (Fedora core 6). ...or almost: still struggling to get network drivers working (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi....php?t=523368)
. I used unix back in college days, but am rather rusty after a long time on pretty much all windows.
It feels good to be going open source and MS-free, and I'm glad for all the helpful folk here.
