If it were up to me, I would have switched from the Toaster to the Penguin a while back, but it's not. Open Office is fine, for example, but how can I run The Sims, Empire Earth, Galactic Battlegrounds or similar? If there is a way, this ex-geek wants to hear from you. Like many others, I don't want a life changing experience, just a better, fairer and cheaper operating system. Isn't that what Linux is supposed to be?
