Ok. Since I have a ton of computers that I’m trying to sell, I think a good segway into the world of Linux might be to take one of those machines and turn it into a linux box. So that’s what I’m going to do. I’ll put it upstairs with my main computer and get pelted by radiation from three sides.
Now, what distribution to run? Malhavoc suggests Xandros. I have a machine running Red Hat in my basement, but the machine itself is pretty flakey, so I don’t really count it.
