I'm in a dilemma of sorts. My DH (dear hubby) was having trouble dealing with Win 7 after years of XP. At 84, He is beginning to show some signs of dementia so it is hard for him to follow directions sometimes. He's forgotten everything the next day. We decided to try to go back to XP since he was getting very frustrated with Win 7. That turned out to be disastrous because none of the browsers work and nothing works like it did when XP wasn't a bad word. My thought is that I might try him with Ubunktu Puppy since it is supposed to have a similar to XP feel to it. ??? Not sure if that's correct as we haven't received the disk yet and tried it. The only thing he needs to be able to do is access his Word 2003 program and get his emails and browse the internet for various searches. If we could get a reliable, uncomplicated operating system, that would be fantastic.
Where can I get some step by step instructions on how to use Puppy from scratch? I read in a few postings that there are several different versions of Puppy as there are in Windows. I'm not sure which version I'll be getting but I am sure it will be interesting to see if we can get something in place for my DH which he can use without too much difficulty.
What tips can you offer to us when we are starting from scratch and don't know beans about Ubunktu or Linux?
