This is my Fedora Core 5 Linux Desktop (such as it is) from August 22, 2006. Fedora Linux is a great operating system, but installation is not for the faint of heart. However, there is a great user community available for it, and lots (LOTS) of information and FAQs to read and browse. It’s worth considering!
I never thought I’d make the switch from Windows, but I did.
I still dual-boot Windows XP, but I’m in Windows only when I have to be. Fortunately this is seldom. Perhaps one day, I will be 100% Linux, but not today. Or tomorrow.
