Microsoft’s Windows operating systems control the vast majority of the worlds computers. Even Mac hasn’t made any serious inroads into Microsoft’s market share. But there is a better way… This isn’t another of my rants…..well ok it is.
In earlier posts I’ve detailed my experiences using Linux as my operating system going back many years. One of the great things about using Linux is that it doesn’t inherently promote hardware upgrades. Linux runs well on old computers with low speed processers and small hard drives and doesn’t demand massive amounts of RAM either. Consequently, as a user and a not a rich one either, I used my NEC Versa LX laptop running RedHat 9.0 for years longer than I could have if I was an XP user for example.
But there comes a time…. I’m writing this entry on my IBM X41 Thinkpad which is running SuSe 11.1 seamlessly!
So the first two things a computer user needs to have for a great computing experience are a great operating system, and high quality hardware. The third and not the least is a technician/programmer who is knowledgeable about Linux….hey every user needs help once in a while!
If you have these three things at hand, you will be able to enjoy years of trouble free, secure and very low cost computing while staying right up to date with all the latest technology.
So what is SuSe?
The openSUSE project is a community program sponsored by Novell. Promoting the use of Linux everywhere, openSUSE.org provides free, easy access to the world’s most usable Linux distribution, openSUSE. You’ll find more information available in many languages on the project wiki.
Open SuSe is a free and Linux based operating system for your PC Laptop or server. You can surf the web, manage your emails, music, videos and photos, do office work.
Linux is a widely used Open Source Unix-like operating system. Linux was first
released by its inventor Linus Torvalds in 1991. There are versions of
Linux for almost every available type of computer hardware from desktop
machines to IBM mainframes. …
My old computer runs RedHat 9.0
What is Redhat….Red Hat, Inc. is a company in the free and open source software sector, and a major Linux distribution vendor.
