So basicaaly, I got a windows PC today and would like to know if its possible to install linux programs on it?
If you want to try Linux on your PC there's a number of different free OS distributions, like SuSe and Debian, but the most popular one at the moment is Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu
, but there are others similar - Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu. I run Ubuntu without problems as well as having XP on the PC.
There are many many programs you can add, just like Windows, and not like the Elonex, and would give anyone a good insight into how Linux works. Enjoy!
