Switching To Linux
This is more of an opinion and advice thread...
My laptop is a bit old and slow, and so I was looking of ways of breathing new life into it. SOmething that popped up was the idea of switching to a linux OS (ubuntu).
Now, I'm far from being technologically minded, but I was wondering if many people here had any experience with linux; if you have switched and never looked back, or to those who have switched then gone back to OSx or windows.
And also how do I go about installing it, I like the idea of wiping my laptop and starting from scratch again, is that what you have to do to install it?
Also is it possible to have an Office alternative that can save formats compatible with MS Office, as work often needs me to do power points etc...
Many thanks old chums
