Hello! I am a 25 year old guy from Gothenburg, Sweden. Developer of a new automatic climate control for Volvo. Have friends who just are a catastrophy when it comes to computers. They have old computers and I used to install win2k with firewall and antivirus, but after a while they just totally have messed it up and everything is extraordinary slow (how they do that?). So I thought of installing a fast linux for them and searched "fast linux" on google and came here
I can not say that it worked out of the box, there were some issues, but it was fun learning and the forum here is just excellent! Now the Compaq Presario 1400 with pccard ethernet and webcam is working very well! And I do not think my friend and his family can mess this one up!
for what I heard about linux when you get it running it stays running. They just surf the web and chat with msn and I put those icons on the desktop.
Maybe I will start to use vector also...but I play a lot of games, mostly Q3 though and should be possible in Linux I know.
