I have good news; the only Linux partition that wasn't trashed was good ol' Beatrix (now defunct, I think). that has been the only Linux distro that is impervious to almost any kind of problem but an atom bomb! Too bad they didn't make it past the 2005 version
That aside, I am about to venture into the BSD Zone! I am giving over my XP hard-drive (40Gb) into the hands of PC-BSD!
I am very excited about this .... I have wanted to get into BSD for about 5 years, but was not computer literate enough to do it yet, and I am too old to learn in a day or two
. I have been told by a friend (Masinick of http://www.USALUG.org
) that PC-BSD is as user friendly as Mepis Linux or Libranet Linux.
I am coming here to this Forum with the hopes of receiving the help I need to master this OS.
M$ Free! ..... that's my goal!
I hope everyone here is as friendly as the people at USALUG. Thanks, goatman
