To add to what Teslanaut said:
It can replace your Vista if you like, but you also can dual boot.
Thats what im doing...
Vista and Ubuntu right now... kinda want to try different Linux's but i dont know which one.
Also, i heard that you can zip files in Linux like you do in Mac OS X to put them on a Repo... is that true?
Open Source. Open Source does not always mean free. Neither does free mean Open Source.
I installed Fedora Core 9 and it was a great experience. Although a bit too technical so I switched back to XP.
Do you see the word open source?
Also, if it was open source, why wouldn't it be free? The source is available for anyone to compile.
Open source was a principle designed for everyone to have and play with
I use Debian, Apache, Backtrack (for pent testing) and have recently been messing with ubuntu - All on my VMware station lol
I use Backtrack too!
For Penetration testing.... Yeah... Lets call it that...
And on VMWare Fusion on my Mac Loving it to deathness.
No seriously! i would neva use it for the bad.....may be out side of my work
Open Source does not always mean free, or for everyone. There are some tricky companies that say 'You buy our product, we'll give you the source', so indeed, we are still open source! Which I believe, is a bunch of hunk, but is still true in a way. :|
In your statement, you said 'FREE', which is a bit cabalistic because free is different from open source. My friend, we could talk for days about this.
Read what I said, did you not notice the parenthesis? It said, (in most cases) FREE.
That means that MOST Linux distros are free. Not All
Separate names with a comma.
