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.

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.
