Hi guys, this is my first message on here so please forgive me :) but  
its my experience as a novice which i hope to persuade the bottom  
remark its not always as easy as clicking here n there...

im semi new to the world of linux/free OS, i do remember tryin suse  
6.2 many years ago, but am trying ubuntu with the run inside of  
windows option, mainly because of coreldraw, ie using it at work etc.
i have successfully installed corel 11 inside of linux, and as i also  
use a mac, its quite usefull, as its also the last revision to come  
out for apples.
getting rid of windows is an option for me, but only on sucessful  
completion of tests on the software i use with in windows etc, as i  
gota put food on the plate.
With vista hot on the heels of all new computers, and software, i am  
not looking forward to using it, as i find its annoyances, a little  
to annoying, espically with older hardware and printers, as i dont  
see why i should go buy a new printer/scanner when my old ones work  
perfectly well etc. Hence my slow transition to linux. I am utilising  
more opensource programs, as i become more used to their interfaces,  
but am trying to find an even keel between running them on an OSX,  
PCBSD, Linux (various flavours), and even looked at React OS(but need  
to play with that a little more)
Its not just the person who works with the individual computer, its  
also the person who you communicate with, and im activly trying to  
convert members of my family, as im fed up of trying to remove adware  
n such like

i hope i have not bored everyone
