RE: Looks like i am joining the Linux Gang...

in Project HOPElast year

Good move. I have used Linux on my home computers for many years and don't feel the need for anything else. It has mostly been Ubuntu as that works well for me. I use Ubuntu Studio as it's better for audio work.

Have fun with it and have a !BEER.

I remember trying to use Linux waaaay long ago... i think the distribution I tried was called 'Red Hat', but I was mostly a kid that wanted to be a hacker, so I didn't go too far.

But I always liked the whole idea of free open-source Linux, and it is amazing to see how much it have evolved.

I even see a lot of computers models being sold with Ubuntu pre-installed instead of Windows, and this make computers even more accessible.

I used Red Hat for a bit about 20 years ago. It has got much easier since then and I think it is probably easier to set up a Linux PC than a Windows one. If you mostly use the web it will do what you need and you can get a lot of games for it now, but I don't play any these days. I like the freedom of Linux, much as I enjoy it on Hive.
