A comparison of the software
It is time to look for an alternative. Something to run alongside
my Acorn. something that I could migrate to if the worst came to the worst.
After following many discussions on many usenet groups, I thought to have a look at Linux.
So for the first time, I sat down and asked myself, what is it that I actually use a computer for.
It seemed to me from my brief trawl around the net, that Linux could probably offer me all of this functionality with better specified software, most of which was free.
As time passes, I will fill out the relevant software list for Linux, similar to that shown above with a small write up showing strengths and weaknesses of both.
The Linux software I will use will be listed here.
