OK, the latest critical MS security patch has me baffled as
to why I bother with their OS. Please help me find some answers to my
own additional FAQ questions for their 28th Sec Bull of the year.
23. Which Linux distro should I start with if I'm a newbie to
it, but have been in IT for 15+ years?
24. How do I know what hardware to put this Linux distro with
if I'm building a new system?
25. How do I build a completely MS-free, Linux-based system
that even my technophobe wife (who may freak if it doesn't
look exactly like our old MS system) can use?
26. Is Linux any better, since I'll have to depend on several
distros and/or word of mouth to get bug/security fixes for
it, as opposed to one company like MS?
If there's a better forum for these Q's please let me know.
Thanx in advance,
