I started up a just joined the family thread in the hardware section to describe my decision to buy Linux, but because I can't help but feel at home in Windows as all of my PC experience has been under it's control... I'm about as hesitant at employing Linux as one could be... As with all simpler, affordable way of life suggestions, I also can't get past the notion of dropping AOL...It's a bit of a luxury feeling to me and I worry the techical working of using Linux, and even this variation of it, will stop me before I begin...are my fears unfounded? Can Linux be as easy and as intuitive as Windows (which I have to say, I doubt! haha)?
Anyway, I heard at least one advantage was very little in the way of viruses and Malware/Trojans affect Linux, so maybe a great way to go online buying... what avenues to explore in that idea? Is security Firewalls and such really needed so far with Linux online??
I'm sure more questions will arise later, but to be quite honest, I have yet to open the box, even though I just bought it today, I thought I might spend the summer playing and learning with it while I try and recover from me spending here...buying both OSes and a HDD set me back $260! haha
