Linux

Lenny, the Lubuntu mascot

Since Adam has been using Linux-based computer operating systems 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 Adam's 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. Adam also has 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 we use
