Linux or not?

Filed under: Uncategorized — rmay4 @ 7:23 am

This is not really a question for me, I am going to use Linux, Mostly at this point, I have several old computers and I started installing using it. So far I have been using different versions of Puppy and Ubuntu,

I started with Puppy because it is the easiest to run from a thumb drive or CD and not have to install or make actual changes to the PC that you are running it on. I got to learn about it and gain confidence before I passed the point of no return and formatted a HD!

I am going to list some links and resources below that I am using to research light weight versions to consider.
