    Well, after looking and trying to remember where I read that cuote I cant backup my hiphothesis. However, IN MY OPINION, I think its best to start off the hard way, because then the rest is simple.

    Here's a great article that gives some good reasons to use an alternative to Windows:
    http://www.hevanet.com/peace/microsoft.htm
    My school's window computers wouldn't let me load the site, conspiracy? i'm pretty darn sure
    pretty good site though.

    starX makes a very good point though.
    it's up to each and every person what distro to use.



    The rhetoric of the Linux community needs to shift away from OS elitism and develop a more friendly environment that lacks the chest-thumping of those who just want a chance to show off how they are better than everyone else.
    Isnt that more or less what that Lindows distro does?

    If you're getting started with linux, it's a good idea to go over to www.linuxnewbie.org. It has been a valuable resource as I have learned to use linux efficiently.
