The other day I received a message from my browser (Firefox) telling me that they would no longer be supporting Vista. I'm normally the sort of person that goes with the 'crowd' - so looked at upgrading Windows. A friend suggested that I look at an alternative FREE operating system called Linux and recommended the Ubuntu 'flavour' as this looks very similar to Windows - so should be easy for me to use straight away. Well, I tried it this weekend on a spare hard drive - I'm keeping it. A FREE operating system which is of little interest to hackers due to the relatively small user base - it's a win win situation. So, if you've had enough of lining Bill Gates pockets - have a look at Ubuntu - I love it.
