I had an older HP notebook with XP Home and the little thing was as slow as molasses in Winter time. Also took forever to find the drivers for the wireless card, once I did the connectoin was always poor in our den.
Long story short, decided to give Linux uBuntu a try, never dived into Linux before so I needed a new project anyway.
Once I downloaded the program, created the ISO disc, started the process. Actually took three tries at it, kept hanging at the partitioning stage, then finally she completed and I must say was very surprised. The system is much faster, uses Firefox, picked up the wireless card and asked for my security code and we were off and running.
Two questions: What free anti-virus would you recommende for Linux uBuntu?
Has anyone tried Google Chrome with Linux?
