About 4 years ago, I was fed up with Microsoft, and had known about Linux, heard that it wasn't that easy install and use, but I figured I'd give it a go anyway. It's not hard at all, that might have been 10 or 12 years ago. In any case, once I found Ubuntu, one of the most popular and easiest to use Distros (versions) I had found MY Linux. And it wasn't hard to install or use. AND It's even more easy to get going today then it was 4 years ago.
