I have been an admirer of linux for many years but mostly out of fear I never tried it. Everyone was saying how hard it is and it was shrouded with a veil of mystery. But I think the time has come, after many many years to become initiated into it.
The excuse for finally doing this was when I learned that win7 stores passwords in the registry. I do not know if that is a fact, but a quick search on google shows many topics on it. I felt sick when I heard it and I am switching to linux for better security. I just hope I can do this!
