Call me an optimist but I foresee more and more Linux OS on campus each semester. What will we be dealing with?
- Asus Eee subnotebook - has a specialized version of Xandros Linux customized for small screens and light portable usage. Has basic web programs, basic office programs, etc. Registering it on the network: does it have Eth port to go wired? Mac address can be found somewhere in the computer settings windows. Ask Haseeb.
- Ubuntu, on various systems - so far I have seen 4 users using Ubuntu Linux, all on Dell laptops, all slightly (but not necessarily very) tech-savvy people. Ubuntu has a massive amount of community-generated documentation & support available, search for problem solutions w/ Google.
- OS features:
- Virus problems virtually nonexistent.
- Very stable.
- Biggest problem is often hardware compatability (drivers etc). This is improving steadily.
- If user needs to use Windows applications but doesn't have Windows available, check the WINE application database to see if that program is known to work well in WINE. WINE is an open source Windows compatability layer and has Linux and Mac installers available.
