Blogs / Re: Why Linux Command-Line?
« on: April 15, 2015, 07:31:54 am »
When I used windows I would often use a dos box to run commands, file management etc us far easier and faster from the command line. In Linux the "average user" could happily run without ever opening a terminal, the likes if zorin have done an outstanding job of that. When I help friends convert I always use zorin full image, one of my colleagues is still running zorin 6 having never needed to open a terminal some 2 years down the line.

He misses the point. The point of Linux is that you have choice, choice of distro, desktop, file manager, software, theme etc.

General Discussion / Re: Ubuntu or mint

Thanks all, I do enjoy using unity and find it very productive but then i also find mint to be very slick looking & aesthetically pleasing hence i am kinda torn :(

btw Zorin is a good distro, extremely stable but put side by side with mint does lack a little sheen.

I was just thinking it would give breathing space until hardware/software allows full switch to linux. 4gb is still a fair bit of space for testing the waters

If ypur not happy playing with repartitioning et al or dont want to risk ypur windows drive at all but want to give linux a fair go then I woild also suggest downloading the Windows version of unetbootin (google it) this will facilitate the download of an image of Ubuntu and srick it on a usb stick which even allows you to have some file space on it. When you boot your pc you just hit whatever your key is to select boot device and boot from the stick when you want to biit into linux or keave to boit into wibdows as normal.

Thats what I meant id fit a second drive. Install linux on that leaving the master windows drive alone with the exception of sticking grub boot loader on it to choose os when booting
