As of Dec 31 2004 , I have become windows free. Using FC2, on P4 2.4 , 512 MB, 120GB hdd.
It was a little scary but I have been dual booting for the past two years, so I was not a complete newbie. I discovered that anything windows does, linux does, albiet a little different or very similiar.
This forum has been ( and will continue to be) a valuble place to get great tips, ideas and links to solve most if not all problems that arise.
Heres to a year free of virus worries, stability, and great OS software.
