I think Linix and the different flavors of it come easier to those of use who
have been around DOS.
It's intriguing to see how speedy an old computer can be
on Linix, in comparison to Windows.
The first time I booted that machine, I
had to do it again just to make sure it was working 
properly. It was
noticeably faster on boot. 

Virtual machines are also a good way to play with
stuff. Virtual Box seems to handle the 64bit 
versions of many programs
without griping like Virtual PC does.

>I think I need to go get a "Linux for Dummies" book or
something. I frequently feel like the lady saying "the oil light is on" with
our tech stuff. I can't help but think I'd be a whole lot happier if I at
least had a working knowledge of Java, Linux, Visual Basic, etc. And
apparently Python too. I took a C class in college eons ago. How that
qualified me to be our interface with IT I have no idea, but I'd at least like
to understand this stuff better.
