Linux

Tux, the Linux Penguin

Since April 2007 I have been using Linux-based computer operating systems and you could be too, for free!

Right now I am using the Ubuntu 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. It is perfect for us. If you want to read about my experiences switching from Windows to Linux, have a look at The Ubuntu Diaries Part I and Part II. 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 I currently use
