Wow. Thanks for taking the time to share that extensive experience with us, Mark! Firewalls, AV & anti -spyware are those type of things I need to rely on third parties, especially the mags to review and recommend. Gradually I am shifting everything from MS, i.e.; using Thunderbird
and online when practical. The last time I loaded Linux, the desktop was just too clumsy to turn loose on the family, but that was a few years back. In a funny sense, I have extremely demanding clients in "my family".
I gotta say, I had my first look at a Linux desktop in the form of Ubuntu a few weeks ago. It looks really sharp, I played a few games but that was it. You can download the ISO from ubuntu.com. Heck, you can even order the CDs for free, as in absolutely free, no shipping. I got the "3-pack" which included one cd each for Macintosh, 32-bit Intel, and 64-bit Intel. I am trying to piece together a box on which I hope to install it. (I ran the boot-from-CD on my main WinXP PC, really nice.) I like prompting for third party cookies, I hate being tracked, anyone
else stuck on this decision? I would also be interested if anyone else has familly requirements of allowing program popcaploader to exist where all these tools say it it is a really bad idea....
Um, sorry, dumb question, but what is a popcaploader? - Dan
