I've always wanted to diddle with Linux, but didn't want to buy another machine just to play. I downloaded the ISO from PCLinuxOS and created a bootable CD. Whoda thunk it! I have a Dell 8200 with a DVD, CD-RW, ATI All-in-Wonder video card, 1gb memory and a Creative 5.1 sound card. The distro fired up and recognized everything and runs just fine, albeit a little slowly because it's running from the CD. I may have to rethink my reluctance for moving to Linux.
I know what he means in the sense that I have several friends at work who are interested in trying Linux, because I say I don't worry about viruses, trojans and spyware, but are very reluctant. The livecd format is the best thing that's come along for Linux since the graphical installers. I have one friend who runs his computer almost solely off a livecd. He says he'll get brave and try to install to harddrive one of these days. But I don't think PCLOS will ever meet it's match in beauty or included features. Other's may put out great livecds, but 'Tex's is the bestest'!
You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
