Re: Are there any Linux users on this board?

Thanks! I'm actually ready to install Linux on my laptop as a dual-boot with windows 8.1, just 1) wondering about how "politics" relates to Ubuntu, and 2) not sure whether to manually re-partition the disc or go along with (trust) the Ubuntu installer.

I have run Ubuntu from the pen drive and it seemed fine and workable, but I have a lot to learn.

Re: Are there any Linux users on this board?

Curious about your political problems with Ubuntu.

I'm still stuck with Windows but have Ubuntu on a pen drive and can boot it on my laptop.

Haven't installed it alongside windows yet, mostly because I'm not well-versed enough to be confident the Ubuntu installer will partition the drive and install without wiping windows entirely. This is my problem (ignorance - I know it is curable by study, different story).

But I'm real interested to know more about the "politics" issues with Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

Re: Are there any Linux users on this board?

Thank You!

I was over-thinking it as usual, ready to read a couple hours every evening after work until it seemed like I understood enough to start.
During plant shutdown over the Holidays there will be time to try it.

Thanks again. Will check back in when and if I take the bull by the horns and actually do it.

Regards,
Andrew

Re: Are there any Linux users on this board?

...so if someone who was used to DOS 2.0 (in those days) but has been ignorant of computers since then, wanted to learn about Linux to load it on an old Pentium machine choking on XP, where would y'all direct him to start reading / learning about it?

Regards,
Andrew
