Becoming a completely Linux household

Filed under
Linux

That’s something I’ve been wanting to happen for a while. Until recently, we were 2/3 the way there – with the laptops and mobile devices that my daughter and I use all running Linux or Android. But I finally got my wish of living in a completely Linux household a few weeks ago, all thanks to my wife’s laptop.

But the question of operating systems reared its head. My wife’s laptop ran Windows 7, and there are a few pieces of software that she uses for which there are no Linux or free/Open Source equivalents. On the other hand, we didn’t have any Windows 7 installation CDs (or are they DVDs now?).

After some deliberation, my wife said To hell with it, install Linux.

rest here
