So the thought just aroused in my head. I’ve been using a trial version of windows for a few years now. Its a trial version of XP, every 30 days I type in a code into the command prompt and it renews the 30 days. I can do this a maximum of 4 times. So every season I have to backup everything onto my 2nd harddrive and format the 1st one, reinstalling the trial version.
I firmly believe that buying a copy of XP is a waste of money. I should just upgrade to another version of windows, especially with support for XP going down the drain. But my system can barely handle XP right now, so I wouldn’t upgrade until i bought a new computer anyway.
But what about linux? Its free, no renewing, its perfect!
I have some concerns though…. What programs would be impossible to run on linux? I absolutely have to have access to Adobe flash to make my games. I also greatly enjoy playing the games I buy on steam and from what my friend has told me, you have to use WINE in order to play any windows games, its a lot of work to setup some games to do this, and some simply will not play on linux. I love playing games, so that may be a deal breaker.
But linux is faster. A lot faster.
