ROFL!

switch to linux if you can

Mheh...I'm a BeOS guy. THis is my sisters laptop and I'm trying to get it useable on our crappy DSL wifi.

many of your favorite windows programs have linux versions too (firefox, thunderbird, etc)

Yer preachin to the choir here, bub. I started with RedHat 8...


there are alternatives for almost everything else you run on windows

you can use wine to run (a very large minority of) windows programs with no problems, over time linux's alternatives will get better and better and you won't need to run wine

you will need windows less and less as time goes on

I dont use it myself :)


eventually, ultimately, by the end of time, nobody will need windows for anything

try downloading a livecd/livedvd/liveusb. no installation is required and you can still access your windows hard disk and files.


Haiku/BeOS for me, thanks.
"Classic Shell" for my sis if I can convince her...
