I have just tried to look at some videos put online by enthusiastic Linux owners. Linux doesn't come with Adobe malware. You have to know how to get it yourself.
So why did the fans put them on Google?
Anyway I just wanted to say that it has the latest Firefox or had the latest Firefox browser on it when I got the disc. It is as fast as a fast thing. A very fast fast thing.
Which just goes to show what you don't need with an operating system. It is made to strict lightness standards Aircraft Engineering of the finest quality. I think it is only 30 KB on a CD so why can't I get it to go onto an old hard disc?
I really want to try it on a P3.
(And then get rid of the P3.)
The team behind the version are all part timers. They'd like to go full time but like all free ware it relies on donations. As might imagine there is no money for them from adverts. It doen't do adverts. Some low key html ads appear on other people's websites but it is by default, free of everything of that nature.
Using a live CD version means you can go anywhare onine and not get knocked off. But it also means you can't save anything, not even bookmarks. (Well, you can make a USB version and save to USB I suppose.)
What I'd do if I was them is get a USB memory make to give me a consignment for free and then seel them with Linux on. Then pay the USB manufacturer from the stuff they do seel. Keeping the debt from the unsold stuff. It means every stick sold would have the latest stuff on it. Consider XP.
That was for sale without a method for running DVDs. And they have only just stopped selling it.
Vista can't be given away. More or less the status quo for Linux too. That's just because nobody producing Linux Distros gives them away with Adobe Flash player. Nor do Microsoft but the difference is that Microsoft is geared to accept new stuff like that easily. And that is why it is a virus magnet too.
The home PC market was originally driven by porn. It is why Adobe produced Flash or at least how they got the market share of video codecs. They give flash reader away. Flash Player it is called. I've no idea how much Flash writing ware costs but they produce the world's most expensive image programme.
They are not in the charity and goodwill towards men business.
Today if you want porn or officeaware then an old computer can be had for anything from free to a few quid. And the alternative fastest beasties will work on them. Once you find out how to get a copy onto your HDD.
