I guess a everyone knows Microsoft is bringing out a new version of Windows called Vista. It has lots of new features and eyecandy.

If your PC is not up to speed the true cost of upgrading is not just the cost of Microsoft Vista but also the costs of the upgrades that you need to run it.

There are alternative operating systems. (Usually referred to as OS.)

Linux is less well known but just as capable. This blog is about a migration to Linux, about the look of the desktop, the software that is included, the problems I've encountered with no punches pulled.

It is written from the perspective of an average ex-Windows user, not a Linux geek. If there is a mistake to be made I've probably done it!

This is a plain English website, all technical terms will be explained. If you have any questions just post them and I'll try to answer them. (Or direct you to a geeky website!)
