Mark Twain, Winston Churchill, Dick Clark, and I all share the same birthday on November 30th. And this past November 30th was a milestone birthday for me! I hit the big Five-OH! Fifty! At left is a birthday card my nephew Tommy drew for me. It's a spot on caricature of me at work at my drawing table. (Check out the shirt. Go Buckeyes!)
This 50th birthday made me realize that you're never too old to learn something new. I was well into my forties when I first switched over to Linux. I've never regretted the move. It was easy to make the switch and when I did run into a minor bump or two in the road, I had the help and support of the Linux community to help me through it.
Don't be afraid to make the move to Linux! I know folks in all age groups who've switched to Linux! In doing so, they've freed themselves of the malware, spyware, viruses, and Trojans that have plagued their Windows systems all these years.
The best way to start with Linux is to download it for free, burn it to disk, and install it on a Windows system that you no longer use. Just know that during this installation, you'll be wiping Windows from the entire hard drive and putting Linux in its place. Then, you'll be able to do your own side by side comparison. You'll find that you'll be using the Linux system more than the Windows system.
In addition, you'll be SAVING MONEY! And how important is that nowadays? You can download Linux for free, and when it's installed and running, never worry about Windows viruses and malware. So, you won't have to shell out extra dollars for a Windows anti- virus/anti-spyware program.
Linux is stable, secure, and simply the better choice.
Get Linux. You're never to old to make the switch.
Ho! Ho! Ho! So soon? - Another year has flown by. A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all! Click for a large version!
