Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Kick the poor when their down:Windows- wrecked XP Starter Edition.

Linux has reached now a point where the superior Linux distributions are established enough to replace Microsoft Windows for many enterprise users if the organization desires to do so. There are many reasons for them wanting to do this. Linux offers enhanced protection against viruses. It provides the organization with more control over their infrastructure.
I use Linux, it does the job.I like Windows®, however the cost is a little much for what you actually get. Their solution for the high price tag is to give the poor a “joke-broken O.S.” called the Windows Starter Edition. It can only run three Applications at the same time. In my opinion that’s a busted-broken O.S. The XP Starter Edition is limited to running on machines with maximum memory of 256MB, aka a joke O.S. Hold on it gets better...The XP Starter Edition, get this, is limited to running on machines with a maximum hard disk drive space of 80GB. All major Desktop Linux (Even The Free Distributions) run unlimited software applications, unlimited system memory, and unlimited system hard disk space. The poor around the world should stay away from Windows- wrecked XP Starter Edition. Edubuntu, Kubuntu and Ubuntu are free cool distributions.

Windows XP Starter Edition will only work on Intel's Celeron chips, AMD's Duron or Geode chips, or processors from Via Technologies. If one tries to run it on a processor such as the Intel Pentium 4, the operating system will read the processor ID and stop functioning.
