    RE: which operating system
    Thanks Goineasy9 I think I will try the Google talk , so not worry Yahoo Messenger thanks.. The down load site I am using is here Linux.com..I have just downloaded Mint .live.as I have about 6 gb left on account. Could you please tell me where you would download from...and are the Live cd or DVD's the same operating system.. Yes I found them here I mean at Linux.com and they may be iso files.. I will wait for your recommendation before I download anymore.. All this started because Netbook and windows 7 starter could not handle the operating system.. So I will change to Linux on all my computers .....but the desktop first... Thanks for being patient Goineasy9 ...and I probably will have more dumb questions...well netbook ones.. Cheers Fozzie
