Re: Debian PC Requirements
Why do you think I am making the transition to Debian Linux, I have had
enough of WINDOWS! I want to stop using Windows because the multitude of
Viruses seem to be tailor made for "Windows"! Even the best Security
software doesn't stop viruses from infiltrating a Windows system and
Antivirus programs and firewalls such as Norton seem to just make hackers
all the more determined to attack a Windows computer because there are so
many free tools to hack Windows.
I am very new to Debian, I have had some success with Redhat but I like
Debian, its ease of installation and all the great tools and packages make
it a very sexy package and it's FREE! But if I am ever to learn I have to
ask questions or else I will never be in a position to bin my Windows cd's.
