Computers And The Free Stuff

When it comes to computers and the software running on them - nothing beats a price tag of free. If your willing to experiment, Linux is a free alternative to handing out hard earned cash for Windows. My favorite Linux operating system so far has been Ubuntu. I have all three of the computers in our house set up to dual boot between windows and Linux so a new system can be learned. If your interested the newest version of Ubuntu will soon be out and is in my sidebar. With almost all of the major distributions you have an entire office sweet along with web browser and e-mail programs along with much more and all free. While it won't run Window's programs outright - there are free alternate programs that will do much of what the windows programs do and there is a program as such that will allow some windows programs to work.
