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.

Opera 9

Pros: Fastest, most lightweight browser out there, matching and surpassing Firefox's features right out of the box, plus Opera only features you wont find in any extension. Opera's still a smaller download than the stripped-down version of Firefox, let alone IE. You get BitTorrent integration, widgets, thumbnail preview for tabs and and the ability to customize individual sites. If your browser crashes and you want to go back to the sites you were visiting before the crash. In Firefox, you have to go History and open them one by one. Opera automatically saves last session so you'll see the tabs in the same order when you open the browser.

Cons: While it is no fault of opera, the browser is not supported on many of the most popular sites. It could be a little too much for a non technical user. If you are good at figuring out software and finding features on your own, then Opera is a great browser.
