Hey I'm quite new to Linux, in fact I haven't even installed the distribution that I own (Fedora Core 1), for the reason that I loaned the DVD to my friend, who has yet to return it.
I was wondering if anyone can give me some pros/cons of Windows 98/XP to Linux. I have a Windows XP computer in my house, a Windows 98 computer in my house, and a computer with a completely new hard drive without an OS on it.
I have some questions about Fedora Core 1 as well
>How does Fedora Core 1 run with a small hard drive (3gb)?
>How long does Fedora Core 1 usually take to boot up/shut down?
>Do you need to have a version of Windows installed on your pc in order to use Wine?
>Is all Linux software the same? (ex. Can I install something for SuSE or Mandrake and also install it on Fedora Core?)
>Does Linux/Fedora Core 1 have a version of the BASIC programming language?
Sorry for so many questions and for seeming/acting like like the beginner to Linux that I am :cheesy: .
