Linux solutions for you newbies - and for us cheapskates to boot

Much as I like the for-fee Xandros version of Linux, longtime readers know I'm basically a cheapskate. And if you are, too, you'll enjoy our parting shot at Linux, namely, how to get one of the free distributions.

Free means free, no kidding. Pretty much everything you get with commercial distributions is included, for example, word processor, spreadsheet, Web browsers, e-mail. About the only thing you don't get is: 1. support; and 2. some of the emulation programs we talked about last week that allow you to run Windows programs.
