You Can Switch to Linux!

By Dave

Maximum PC has released an article under the Creative Commons license about switching to Linux. I love reading these articles. It is a little light on details for my liking, but it makes note of some great enhancements you can add once you switch over.

I am featuring it here mostly because it uses the CC license, and also because its about Linux, which has grown near and dear to my heart over the last few years.

Once you’ve burned the ISO, you’ll need to boot your PC from the Ubuntu CD, which will involve either manually selecting the optical drive or changing the boot order in your BIOS. After several minutes, you should see the basic Ubuntu desktop. You should have access to most of your hardware, including network, sound, and graphics. Some typical gaming components simply don’t have good Linux support—notably the X-Fi series of soundcards and GeForce 8800­–family videocards. We’ll talk about them in a bit.

Check out the article on Maximum PC, and feel free to share it, as long as you give attribution.
