Stan Talks LINUX
- March 09, 2017
Many of you have heard me talk about using LINUX on your home PC.
Linux offers an alternative to Windows. It is free, comes in many flavors, and all the applications are free. I have saved some old devices with it. It is not at all susceptible to viruses, for many reasons. It is free. It is a point and click environment like windoz, with the same power and similar applications(programs). It never slows down or has to have its hard drive “repacked”. Did I mention it is free?
My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1705. This machine would never play videos smoothly. I loaded the LINUX distribution XFCE4, and now it works perfectly.I have also recently loaded it on a Chrome Book which was freezing periodically and a Mac Book 10 with good results.
It is not vulnerable to viruses because so few people use it, there is not much sense making a virus for it. Virus authors want to get the most bang for their buck (time spent).
