Have recently been introduced to operating system called Ubuntu and I have downloaded it on to a disc but not too sure about replacing Windows even though I have heard good things about it. I also use Firefox 3.6 which I much prefer to IE8. Any comments please?

hi i recently took a chance and bought second hand on ebay an acer aspire netbook for £70. a computer engineer friend converted it for me from linex to xp and fitted a new battery and now i can take it to the pub and click on. it is very slow booting up and running. it may have to go back to my mate for him to "clean up " the systems!

I have installed and played around with various Linux distros and though they can be a bit tricky and sometimes hard to get working with certain bits of hardware, they generally run fast and have lots of free open source software available in the repositories. That said, I've never found them useable enough to consider keeping and using on a day-to-day basis. I'm also not at all keen on the latest version of ubuntu which has become rather tablet/netbook oriented and far less customisable than before.
mrcricket: SC and AW and possibly a lot of others looking at the small print (possibly with their legal representatives). RW and MM probably doing the same. Cotterill wondering whether he can put up with the regime change for another 12 months.

ThrobsBlackHat: Decent point that. The decision to not start with Moore looks even more bonkers than it did before kick off.
