These set of pages are devoted to helping folks transform from being a Windows user to the World of Linux. The information, on this site, is not intended for the advanced Linux guru, nor the person that needs to use Windows for one reason or another, but rather for the rest of us folks. All content is spoken/ written in PLAIN English - no tech speak here!
Intended audience may include:
Yep.. I know, it's kind of a scary proposition! I've been developing Windows software for over 20 years and you'd think it would be easy for me. It wasn't by any means, thus; the reason for these pages - to help you get started by reveling my real and recent personal experience - the joys as well as the frustrations. The goal is to make it easier for you.
So, you might be thinking.. "Why did you, and why do you think I might want to switch from an operating system that I'm familiar with to one that I know nothing about?
I could give you dozens of reasons, and I do on one of the resources pages, but for me to make this hard decision was due to all of Microsofts nonsense starting with Windows 8 then expanding with Windows 10. IMHO, Wins 10 is nothing more then a piece of spyware that tracks everything you do then uses it for THEIR gain: it's a concept that is destroying trust and most importantly - our freedom. It's YOUR computer and iNet connection - that YOU spent hard earned money for - for MS to use you as a "product" should not be part of the deal? And, oh yah - what about all those viruses going around and the cost of maintaining an Anti-Virus app that causes you more problems then any other software on your system?
I'm not here to convince you to do anything but merely to help you make the change to Linux if it's your decision to keep your freedom ;-) The times they are a chang'n - so it might be the right time to saddle up and join me for the ride?
