Good Day Folks. Joined to see what I could learn about various versions of Linux, and what apps are available to parallel Windows-based applications (i.e.- Quick Books, CAD, etc.) so that I could operate in a clean environment for a couple of years. Currently living in Columbia, SC. :thumbsup: :flowers:

Welcome to BC!
I know that OpenOffice.org (a free Office-type application) works with many versions of Linux, as does the Mozilla suite of browser and email client.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I found linuxiso a good place to start. The RedHat 9 is an easy install and full featured.
