LXer: Get your feet wet before taking the Linux plunge

Published at LXer:

I recently promised you a strategy for a long-term exploration and transition to Linux and Open Source. This plan is for home use; organizational Linux is another issue. You also can follow this strategy to get some idea of how well a netbook will work before shelling out big bucks. You can decide whether Open Source applications work for you without installing Linux. Why? Most come in Mac and PC-compatible versions as well. Start by downloading and trying out the big ticket items, Open Office, Firefox and the Thunderbird e-mail client, on your PC, replacements for your must-use for-fee applications. has a good list of addition software.
