   But Linux runs great on older (cheap) hardware that can't keep up with
   Vista  or  XP.   I'm  sending  this  from  a  333  MHz Pentium running
   Slackware.   (I'm  so old, I learned Unix before Windows even existed,
   so no steep learning curve for me.)
   Windoze is good for your mom to keep her recipes, but Larry is right -
   Linux or a Mac if you're doing something serious.

worst for up to date drivers for brand new machines. Now get someone
that has linux experience to fix it.

Now Fedora, that's a whole different ball game

For development - Linux. For Work - Mac, For Solitaire - Windows
