I am another Linux rookie. I have heard if Linux for years but never gave it much thought.I had figured that this os was more for developers than Joe Public. Recently my Windows system decided it didn't want to boot so I burned a Linux disk to get at my files again. I am planning on giving Linux a good try and hopefully toss the Windows into the trash.
I hope to be able to learn a ton of things here.
