    turn to linux

    hi ! dear people
    do you know that linux is the best operating system ever made in the history of computers
    starX windows provided by redhat is far better than any of the microsoft products it's easier to install as compared to windows NT and the only draw back is that it does not support visuall basic liberaries
    and you can n't play some of the games on it
    other wise it is more than you can think of
    it's for free and comes with source code
    that what i really call free ware you can modify or update it
    do you know that linux has stripped
    billions of MS dollars and is saving peoples money
    if you have any question or suggestion
    please let me know
    all the comments are welcomed
    crush micro soft
    and turn to gold
    turn to red hat .

    I agree.

    Pak.Org uses Linux on all its 6 servers. I use Linux on my home PC and Office PC. I do have a spare running NT for some of the stuff. But I must agree with shezi, Linux is teh way to go! Put it on a Xeon or Alpha chip and watch the baby rock!!!

    Hey Shezi, know of any good freeware OS booters? I use lilo, but one of my friends need a better looking. Hes got 98 and linux. NT loader will do but he doesnt want to go to NT. any ideas?

                  Thanks Azkar.

                  Shezi> This is just a guess but could be right. How about Unix Bulletin Board?

                      Linux, I was thinking about it. I got me a P100 lying around in the house so I'm gonna give it a shot. Any ideas or Websites I could download it from.

                        Zman,

                        One of the most popular one is Redhat version. There are websites from where you can download, but depending on your bandwidth it might take long... Or you can call one of the companies to get it for around $10.

                        Free download sites:

                        ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/distributions/


                        Pay couple of dollars to get it from following site:

                        www.cheapbytes.com

                          zman. the best thing to do is go auctions.yahoo.com and in computers/hardware/worstation section or software section, u will find tons of Linux RedHat 6.0s for less than 6$ ! thas dirt cheap bro. p100 will work just fine. make sure u have at least 64MB ram.

                          or, if u have fast internet connection, simply create the net boot floppy. reboot ur computer wid it and download the whole gad dam Os. ) i even downloaed it a couple of times on my home ISDN!! (i had to leave it runing all night) heheh

                          go to www.redhat.com and check out the mirror sites. there are plenty.

                            Cool. I have 40meg on my P100, so I will have to add some simms. I could also create a 2 gig partition on me P500 and install it. I just might do that.

                            Thanks guys for the replies.

                              Folks:

                              I am not a computer freak, excuse the term, like you guys but I do like to keep up with the new trends in computers.

                              Would you please tell me a good site where I could learn about Linux. Appreciate the help
