Is Linux operation system any good?

  barnettgs 19:15 17 Feb 2003

I have been reading about latest Linux software and that they have never been so much better. A computer Shopper magazines said it is on par with Win Xp on one review (SUSE Linux).

I'm curious about it but I am not sure about few softwares such as games, applications etc, that will works in Linux?

I've installed Suse Linux 8.1 and, yes, it was very easy to do so.

As an operating system it does more or less what XP does but in a totally different way. It's fast and stable but takes very much longer to boot.

Almost all the software you require (Office, Graphics, CD burning etc) come with it or are fairly easily installed.

Don't expect to play any cutting edge games though.

You will find it a steep learning curve but, if you keep at it, it will become a very interesting passtime!
