I've used Puppy Linux  :-[ very successfully.

Its small enough to run from a usb key, so no need to install on the harddrive! ;D

   Your friend there obviously has a lot of programs loading in the background and is set to do a scan at powerup each time. Most programs now a days are set to run at power on in the background for "ease of use". Just hogs resources.
   On a good note, try BitDefenderPro. One ruthless proggie. Mine is set to full scan once a week and watches all incomming.

Hi,
I use Ubuntu - Breezy Badger? KDE desktop (I think), I will get around to upgrading to the latest version sometime.
Toying with getting that new glide interface to work with the graphics card - sort of 3D cube interface similar to Vista.

I was looking at another persons XP PC during the xmas break and it was so bogged down with virus scanners that even after 20 minutes after power on you could not use it. I think the PC needs a re-build and the McAfee virus scanner tweaking somewhat.

Regards
Rob

Hi gents,

Nice to see some many Lusers!

I'm a debian devotee since a Maximum PC free CD introduction (it was Hamm I believe) but I recommend Ubuntu, or a flavor thereof, for 1st time XP/Vista jumpers.

But I haven't seen Compiz listed for a window manager.

True, it can be a bugger to get running, But when it is......it's REAL purty (pretty).

Truthfully, I like the desktop movements to have an application per desktop (I run a hexagon) and find it helps my productivity.

For Windows users wanting to go to Linux the easiest & fastest way is to get the latest Ubuntu distribution:

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

It's very easy to install and mantain it and much more stable than Vista or XP.

I've been using Ubuntu as my sole OS for a while now. Overall I'm happy with it. I've customized it to look like a Mac sort of. My one complaint is that flash sometimes crashes firefox but that's an adobe problem. I like Ubuntu a lot. I've never tried any other distros though.

Hi Stephan,

For firewall, I suggest you use a hardware device like a wireless router (some can be reprogrammed with a linux variant that makes them comparable to some seriously capable and expensive security and remote access networking hardware -- www.openwrt.org).

If you still want a PC based firewall, I've used the firestarter program for a very friendly interface to iptables. Firewall builder is good too.
If you are looking to make a PC your router/firewall, there are many mini-distros built just for that purpose that will work.
Many have very low overhead and can be run on older "junk" machines.

If you're looking for linux software of any type, try www.freshmeat.net and use the search function.
This site has the best overview of linux software in my experience.

I hope you make the switch to linux as I've always found it to be much more stable and capable than windows products and it allows me to run multiple types of servers and services securely.

Have not had time to switch finally to Linux.

Ubuntu has a great section for help, go to http://help.ubuntu.com or https://wiki.ubuntu.com

here is how you would set up a firewall for an example:
https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/keeping-safe/C/firewall.html

Also go with a hardware type of fire wall, works best. Software firewalls are pretty safe too though.


EDIT - I am starting to like Ubuntu better now than Xubuntu even though they are both excellent operating systems. I've been using Ubuntu for a while now :) still need to try Gobuntu.


peace

HartiBerlin,

For what I understand now is that Linux has always a firewall running and that program is called IPtables (as ExxComm0n said above).
I didn't know that in the beginning and started to look for a program because I was worried.
I downloaded Firestarter which is only a grafical front end for IPtables so I thought I was protected at last  ;D
Linux has many nice suprises, but you need to take some time to get used to it.
I am still using Ubuntu by the way (latest version Hardy Heron).

I have been using Ubuntu 8.10 for about half a year now, in a dual boot mode so that I can switch back and forth between it and Vista (bad choice though, better with XP).
In addition I installed Virtual Box on Ubuntu so that I can run any version of windows I would like, almost without backdraws, and for things like Adobe, Maya or other programs which I am too lazy to move I can just restart on Vista again  :)
Oh and one more thing: You don't need any anti spyware or firewall's on Linux, the security is much tighter than on windows, still not in the irritating fashion like on windows.

I love my linux mint - as the majority said ubuntu is the way to go
Mint is just another chassis for ubuntu but has a lot of very handy features

(im using gnome - the mint- menu is like the suse-menu (that i loved too) and that behaves just like a tuned windows menu)

The FlashProblem sucked !!!!
just today i deinstalled the Flash-nonfree plugin and installed the version 10.0.22.87-2intrepid1 as it popped up in the softwaremanager (that every windows user will love cause its so very easy) since than no stucking videos ...

Hi all,

My favorites are in order of personal preference:

PC-BSD, much safer than any Linux distro. It is the only one that I use now. Not as up to date in flash or other proprietary softwares. It has come a long way but still some issues.

Mandriva Powerpack as it comes with very good video drivers and is easy to setup and work with. Somewhat safe.

Ubuntu, the easiest of all to use and setup and comes with good drivers. Somewhat safe.

Take care,

Michel
