hi ,

I don't know if I should post this here but I just want to share my excitement :cool: :)

Yesterday I managed to connect to the internet from linux , last night I run an update and now I can see the difference between Linux and windows (until now all I have done is surfing and downloading with azureus ).
My cpu runs at 1700 Mhz and my Ram is 256.
With windows in order to surf and download I had to run Northon at the backgroung, I had to run offen spybot and adaware in order to surf but with linux I don't have.(By the way should I download similar programs to spybot and northon for linux? and if have any suggestion? )
And the most important is that I feel that my pc is lighter

I am so happy :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :thumbsup: :)

I faced some problems while instaling UBUNTU plus the lack of GUI is ,i feel , a disadvntage.
