Linux

Lenny, the Lubuntu mascot

Since Adam has been using Linux-based computer operating systems and you could be too, for free!

Right now he is using the Lubuntu operating system. Adam notes, "Linux is free, very stable, has tens of thousands of free applications to do everything you need and doesn't run Windows viruses or spyware. It is perfect for me. If you want to read about my experiences switching from Windows to Linux, have a look at The Ubuntu Diaries Part I, Part II and Part III. I also supply Linux DVDs".

These two websites have some very useful background for people new to Linux:

For information on free and open source software for Windows have a look at the Windows Open Source/ Freeware Project. I also have a Best of Free Windows Software DVD for users on dial-up who can't download huge files themselves.

For a list of recommended free software for all operating systems see the Free Software List.


Worthwhile free software that Adam currently uses
