Ditto to what Donna said
As some point I'm going to go full Linux, interesting bit of trivia - google uses linux on their in-house systems.
That's on my list of things to do this fall Steve.
I'm going to reformat my hard drive on the laptop and install Linus.
It's a scary move but I'm wanting to try it. And my second son whose techy wants us to have just one computer that has only Linus..he says it's better.
I have all the backups to reinstall Windows if I want.
I use ALOT of free software such as OpenOffice that'll work just fine with Linux and need to do a different modem on the laptop just like your talking about.
I'll keep you apprised!
