Thread-topic: [CRTech] Semi Tech: My transition to Linux has begun! :)

I had looked at Linux many years ago and was not ready to make the jump. I’m still interested. At home although I’m still on Windows I already run many programs that have Linux versions, Thunderbird for email, Open Office and for accounting, GnuCash. (I like GnuCash, but you do have to know a debit from a credit. It is true accounting, not home bookkeeping.)

 

So here’s the big question, what about programs that are Windows only? I’m hooked on Adobe Creative Cloud with their monthly charges and there are security camera apps from Lorex that I believe are Windows or Mac only. I’m also concerned about printer drivers.

 

Do you recommend a Windows emulator or a dual boot?

Just a brief note to my fellow Techs, that I finally "took the plunge" with my home computer. :)

Linux Mint (18.3 with Mate desktop) installed beautifully "side-by-side" with my Windows XP. The dual-boot works great!

I cannot praise it enough, recommend it highly enough, etc!

With Firefox, Libre Office, Gimp, etc, already built-in... AWESOME SAUCE!! :)

 

Goodbye, Big Brother MotherShip!!! :)

Willie...
