Linux software tutorials
Linux is a operating system which you can install on your home computer, laptop, or server for free because it is open sourced software which means you never need to pay to download the install CD image to burn to a CD, or copy to a flash drive to install Linux. There is no activation key which is required to use Linux, and all updates for Linux are free. You can use Linux based operating systems like Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint, etc to run programs which people normally run on Windows and Mac like Web Browsers, Office Suites, Media Players, image editors, video editors and Computer Games like Microsoft Windows and Apple's Mac OS X operating system except Linux based operating systems are free to install and use, and do not suffer from the largee amount of virus, spyware, adware and malware infections which can negatively effect Windows users if they do not have a updated and good antivirus. Linux also do not require as powerful hardware requirements like 2GHz CPU and 3GB of RAM to run smoothly which Window Vista and 7 based operating systems tend to need just to open a few programs and files at once while Linux only requires 1 GHz CPU Speed, and 512 MB of RAM or less to run smoothly. Linux is also great to install on older computers since there are barebones distros of Linux like Puppy Linux, Lubuntu, and Tiny Core Linux which can run very smoothly on most older computers made in the last 10 or more years. With Linux, it is relatively easy to move to different Linux distro operating system if you find one is too hard to use, or too limited you can just install another one without spending any extra money on software like switching from Mac to Windows, or Windows to Mac, or an older version of Windows which cost hundreds or thousands of dollars if you choose to switch from Windows to Mac since you can't install Mac OS X easily on a Windows based computer, and it can be complicated using bootcamp and Virtual PC software to use Windows in Most Linux software like Gimp Image editor, Open Office, Evolution E-mail can be installed on Ubuntu, Fedora, Lubuntu, and a ton of other Linux based operating systems, so you can use the same programs on different versions of Linux which suit your needs better. Some Linux software like Firefox, OpenOffice, VLC media player is also available for Windows and Mac, so if you do not like Linux, you can still open your files on a Windows or Mac computer if you decide to switch back to Windows or Mac, or on a dual boot computer which allows you to start up in either Linux, Mac, or Windows during conmputer start up by using the arrows and enter key on the keyboard to select which operating system you want to start into. Creating a dual boot computer is very straight foward, you just need to start your computer from a Linux install CD during computer start up to install Linux, and tell Linux that you want to install Linux along side of Windows and Mac, and how much space do you want Linux to use. Ubuntu Linux is the easiest Linux disto to create a dual boot computer since Ubuntu Linux has a Windows Ubuntu Installer called Wubi.exe on the Install CD which lets Windows users create a dual boot computer within Windows without partitioning their hard drive by using a virtual hard drive for Ubuntu.Linux is free, requires low hardware requirements, have plenty of online support from blogs and forums, and teaches you about alternative operating system, and less restrictive then Windows and Mac are the major reasons which I recommend Linux as the best and most cost effective operating system for older computers which are too slow to run Windows, or for people who rather spend money on computer hardware instead of costly paid closed source operating system software.
