I have a laptop. It has Linux on it. This makes me very happy. I spent a few nights trying to download some anti-virus software (unsuccessfully) until I learned that Linux doesn't need anti-virus software BECAUSE IT DOESN'T GET VIRUSES!!!!!
What a concept. I can take it with me on trips, and connect to the Internet so that I can still blog and check my email. I cannot however do much else. THIS WILL NOT STOP ME! I can get "Linux for Dummies" from the library.
And it will never steal Word from me. Hah!
