I’ve been a windows user forever, and I have never really seen a good reason to make the switch to linux. I have considered it for a while, but it never seemed worth the effort to make the switch.
I bought a laptop, and its not a bad laptop, I was only planning on using it for basic stuff (iTunes, firefox, and open office is all I really need it for), but the laptop came with vista. This laptop was clearly not designed with vista in mind. With only half a gig of ram, doing anything takes far too long, and when I just want to quickly check a website or something, it is really a pain.
So, I figured I would try Linux. I was thinking about duel booting the two, in case I need vista for something, but I really don’t know where to start.
I’m sure there are forums set up for this exact thing, but I was wondering if you guys could help me. Which …err… “version” (I know that isn’t the right word) of linux am I going to want, I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, so I was considering that.
Where do I start, do any of you know how I can duel boot linux and vista, is it worth the switch to linux?
