why I will not go back


Just thought I'dd share this...

THREE times in the last month, I had to format my windows partition and reinstall it cause it broke down. TWO of these times windows caught a worm (some kind of sasser) before I even had time to download the updates from my antivirus.

Thank you to all the people from this forum who helped me set up my Mandrake 10.0 into a workable desktop environnement.

After 2 months of linux i'm currently trying out many distros and having loads of fun (some frustration... but that's part of the game).

It's a great positive experience.

Thanx to linuxquestions.org and everyone
