    I want nothing to do with the 'cloud'. I don't trust it, and I don't trust
    the American govt and 'authorities'.

    Nor do I trust mine.

    My OS, my progs/apps and my files will be staying on my machine.

    If MS takes away that option, then it's bye-bye, MS.

    Stuff the cloud.

    the best is Pinguy, it’s a developer who just configure an Ubuntu to make it more easy to use for Windows peoples, it as all the thing install like the docky ( menu like Mac OSX ) and the gonky (info menu a right on the pic) the flash is install, email configuration with thunderbird is more easy than outlook. Their forum is great too.

    Thanks for the screenshot. I was a little hesitant because Ubuntu itself seems to be alright. By the looks of it, I might like that even better.

    Is there a way to convert to Pinguy from Ubuntu or should I just bite the bullet and clean install Pinguy?

    Several people having a look at Linux , I see.

    I just installed Mint the other day.

    It is surprising how much you will have learned about windows in just a couple of years of using it.

    I expect it will take at least that long to get comfortable using Linux - could be quite frustrating at first.

    Hi there
    Linux of almost any distro flavour is infinitely versatile and configurable -- this while a strength is also it's weakness -- in a workplace you do need consistent interfaces and standard applications -- and even the most biased Linux geek will say that the TCO in an enterprise for Linux (not as a server but for workstations) isn't significantly (if at all) cheaper than Windows.

    When you can choose a load of GUI's / compile anything you like etc etc it should be possible to make a really great system -- but the average joe wants to switch straight on out of the box and start running standard applications like Office etc.

    Cheers

    Yes, I think that is what Pinguy is for.

    Yeah a little bit. Tasks we take for granted on Windows sometimes needs a phd in Linux computer science, but once you do learn something new there, it gives a small sense of satisfaction.

    I was happy enough yesterday figuring out Ctrl+Alt+T = terminal open.

    You make a fresh install and with Pinguy your Windows share problem will be fix, I can even go on the share of my domain without change anything in Pinguy.
