Oh that Linux

I have been on the hunt the last few days to find a free Linux distribution that will work on my laptop. So far Mepis is the most promising. It is a live boot CD that can be installed to the hard drive. It would seem that Linux uses it's own language. And has a different ways of doing simple things like downloading programs and installing them. It comes as a distibution rather than just an OS, translation being when you install a linux distribution you get all the software you could ever need. Including a full office suite. Multimedia programs. The list is huge. If you have an old system that you want to breathe new life into try a small distro like BeatriX or Dam Small Linux or perhaps Puppy Linux. All these and more can be found for free at
