I run Linux on my laptop (which I use 95% of the time) and at work. Only use Windoze for Flash/Premiere type stuff. For most other software there's a Linux alternative. Security-wise, Windoze is a shambles, and the nice thing about Linux (apart from the security) is the amount of free software out there.
Having said that - and this is quite a big 'having said that' - there's still a relatively steep learning curve with Linux. Mandrake is apparently making leaps and bounds in terms of usability for beginners, but with Linux it's best to try a number of different types (distributions) and find one that suits you. My preference is fedora
Quite honestly, if you can use a computer well enough to post to this forum, you can probably use Linux. Just don't expect your Granny to!
Still, loads of peoplea are happy with Windows - if it does what you want it to, just make sure to keep it up to date!
Don't know if it will help, but there is a distro of linux that is easy to set up called Xandros. If you have a look at the many linux mags out there (wh smiths is a good place) they generally have discs on the covers. I've been wanting to try linux for some time (cos i hate windows).
This one loads itself up on a windows machine, partitions the hard drive for you and puts up a boot menu at the start, so you can choose whether to run linux or windows. Easy peasy...
Unfortunatly I don't have the disc anymore, as I gave it away. Tho' I'm sure you could source a copy on the net somewhere.
Hope this helps. :cheers:
This is a very unusual request but I am hoping that all avenues can be used.

It is vitally important I find him, not to drag...
