      If it works out like the majority of cases, you'll use it on and off for a couple of weeks, get excited about finally using an open source platform, discover a couple of great little features then finally develop a sense of 'but it's not as familiar or compatible as Windows', you'll wonder what all the fuss was about and probably forget all about it whilst re-booting back into Windows!. I'm not knocking it, not by any means, but a lot of people like to give it a go and then find all those handy, familiar features that come with Windows can't be replaced and can't be lived without :lol:
      You could, of course, be the exception here :lol:
      Cheers

        I was thinking that too thats why I went dual boot, but I'm actually finding I like using the terminal (command line) and such its rather fun if I do say so myself.

          Guess who just destroyed their first Linux system! Yeah I didn't know that holding down the power off switch would damage the system when shut down that way.

            Hello, I did not go for the dual boot option. I just got shut of Windows completely. Wiped my hard drive as clean as clean can be and installed Ubuntu.

            I think that this was the best PC decision that I have ever took.

            Michael :rolleyes:

              Hey Michael - Glad it's working out for you mate!!

              Personally, I believe once the decision to migrate over to Linux has been made, that is the only way to go.

              The new user is always going to encounter frustrations with Linux and a dual boot system (with Windows) affords the luxury of just reverting to an old and familiar friend rather than persevering. It transforms the transitional period from 'I'll get round to it one day, when I have the time' to 'well I gotta stick with it now because I've got no choice'. :)

              Anyway, nice to hear from you Michael. I see you actually joined almost 2 years ago...that's a long time between drinks mate!! LOL

              Cheers....Jim
