I frequently have questions about doing things to my machines on my own, since I am cheap and poor.
So, I'm trying to cut the cord and wondering if I can do it well by turning an old unused windows 7 machine into a linux machine, then dedicating it only to entertainment with xbmc or something similar, nestled next to my TV.
Any takers on advising me in this area?
Also, I have an old VISTA machine that is my main pc. Generally it works fine for surfing, listening to music, posting writings, etc. I am not comprehensively knowledgeable about computers, but with walkthroughs and such I can usually do what I want to do.
So, I'm interested in seeing how well being a part of this community will help me.
