Taking the Linux Plunge: The Good and The Bad
It’s been one week since the switch to Fedora. So Far, I’m not turning back. The Good Stuff:
* Boot up time is Quick. So quick I get frustrated at my wife’s state-of-the-art Winblows Laptop.
* Accessibility- I like KDE better than Gnome. I just think it’s more intuitive and is easier to work with.
* Applications- I miss Dragon Naturally Speaking, but just about every other Application I had I’ve found a replacement that works better.
Here’s the Bad:
* Windows Emulation- Sorry. Wine is about the worst thing I’ve ever experienced. I mentioned losing Dragon Naturally Speaking. There is a way to barely get it to work, but try to follow the programming on the Wine boards is impossible. I also lost a game I was in the middle of. I know getting Linux and then trying running Windows apps makes no sense, but once Ive made the investment in a commercial program, I don’t want to lose that investment. If something is advertised as allowing me to run these programs, it should work.
* Support- I don’t like to use the terminal.
