Should I use Linux?
Posted on 1998-12-09
I am a happy user of win98, with all office software, and a lot of business applications that require memory, an internet connection which is heavy use in evenings with netscape and IE, and a few heavy graphics games for the weekend.
I am using the latest PII 400 mhz, 6 gig partitioned drive, 128 SD RAM, 8 megs graphics card, AWE Gold soundblaster and the general crap that computers have.
Simple question. Should I use Linux on my system? I know if ain't broken dont fix it, but I like new things/toys and challanges. I know hardly anything about Unix and its operating system, no programming experience, but am very confident in the old dos based system.
What are the advantages of using Linux, is it easier (doubt it) more powerful, stable and dual bootable with win98 on the drive. I heard that dual boot can trash your system?
