who remembers red hat, I think it was red hat Linux, I got it free from somewhere years ago and while it looked interesting it had nothing on the easy of installation of windows. I've had windows 95, 98, ME, vista, Win7, 8.1 and I can honestly say I have never fully used or understood the full features of any. They rolled em out and I like a sheep upgraded. If I can't use it from the moment I install it then software for me becomes just another annoying program. Windows 8 was annoying, I still don't use the start icon screen. Linux was nice but so annoying when you needed to understand how to 'mount' drives or whatever, I don't have time to read all your cryptic info. BUT Linux versions these days are extremely polished and easy and free. I virtually do only three things on a computer, 1 . access the internet, I like to talk, I talk too much. 2. write. i'm writing a book. 3. photo edit, cause I take like about a hundred digital pictures to sell an ebay item and reduce that to about six. Sometimes I use excel to do a home budget or recently the wife wants to compare funeral plans.
