And I'm so fed up w/ Vista that I actually tried really installing Linux. And yes, it all went down in flames. Nice way to waste a perfectly good weekend,too.

Which distro did you try?

To be quite honest most Linux distros are now so user-friendly that any old numbnuts could install a distro alongside Windows.

Using that Distro, however, should you choose to step outside certain perimeters, is a different ball game.

There are a few distros where you could fall foul if you're inexperienced, Slackware for instance.

And just out of interest did you know, AppleFanBoy, that Linux and Apple OS's are both based on Unix?

Now there's a thing eh?
