Filed under
Howtos

I know you need to shift to Linux from Windows as you can't afford the side effects of windows.If you are having this feeling then this article is really for you.Like you i too, was a user of Windows and decided to shift to Linux when i was fed up with it.This was mainly because of the virus attacks and lack of stability of Windows .You know once i installed windows XP four times a day.One of my friends advised me to take a look at Linux .I have taken his advice ,but soon came back to windows ,when i found it was not right for me.But more and more nasty windows events took place and i made my mind to shift to Linux and the first Linux distribution in my life was Knoppix.Later i came to use Ubuntu and the journey in my Linux world continues.
