I am interested in trying Linux. I found out that many versions of it are free online, but I'd have to spend all day downloading the files and burning them to discs. I think that would just turn out to be a mess since I wouldn't really know what I was doing :lol:. Now I checked one eBay, and people are selling the same thing that can be downloaded on CDs or DVDs and they all are under about $11. I was considering SUSE 10.3 because it was only like $4 including shipping, and I've heard of SUSE before. So I need some advice: Is Linux worth my time? What type works best and what makes it better? Does it load fast, is it reliable, etc. You see, there are so many versions of it, a newbie like me is clueless! I apreciate any help, thanks! P.S. And before any Mac fanboy comes overhere and tells me to get a Mac, I already have one and love it :tongue:. I just want to know all of my options :smile:. Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added: One more thing: What is the difference between 32 and 64 versions? Is 64 for newer computers? I'm planning on putting it on an older computer.
