Ok I was reading up about Linux and thought that is was pretty cool. Right now I have a Sony Vaio, with Windows XP. Would it be possible to download Linux to use for the computer? And also, which is better? I read that Linux is more stable than Windows, but I am not sure if this is true. My mom was talking to some computer guy and he was saying that we should not get Linux because if there is a problem with it we won't find anybody to come and fix the problem. I am new to all of this computer stuff so I am not sure... And if I had Linux would I be able to still use the AOL software and the word processors and everything? The thing I am thinking though is if Linux is the better software to get, how come you can download it for free and Windows Vista costs money to buy? If you guys think Linux would be the better choice, can you send me to a reliable download site that people use a lot? Thanks in advance.
