I am new to this forum and to Linux. I have been with windows most my life and am sick of it. I have been trying to find out all I can about Linux to see if I really should make the move. I have a few questions about Linux that I want answered.
1. I have a lot of files that I want to keep but they are under windows. Is there a big diference in general file names like. .jpg, .mp3, etc? Can I convert them somehow??
2. I have some games that I would like to play now and again. Will they run in linux?
3. How do I get a good copy of Linux to try? I tried downloading a live eval of SuSE 9.1 and burned it to CD but it will not boot. I believe I followed exactly what the instructions said. Is there some special trick to it? Is the live eval from SuSE any good?
Thank you for helping me. I really like this forum. It was useful in helping me figure out C++ programing.
PS I am using windows 98
