Lenny, the Lubuntu mascot

I have been using Linux-based computer operating systems since and you could be too, for free!

We use the Lubuntu operating system. 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. If you want to read about my experiences switching from Windows to Linux, have a look at The Ubuntu Diaries Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV.

For information on free and open source software for Windows have a look at the Windows Open Source/ Freeware Project.

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