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.

A fast review of the BYTECC USB 2.0 to IDE Drive Adapter. There are no instructions on how to install included with this package. It literally emulates your drive as a true hard drive, a non-formatted drive will show in your disk management but not as a drive on your system until you format it. However it's picky about what CD/DVD drives it will work with. “Its a cool buy.”
