Operation: Red Hat

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 20 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I a personal fan of free stuff. I try to aquire most of my stuff for free, or at least at extremely reduced prices. Whilst I like Microsoft and the stuff they offer, it is very expensive to maintain my system with the latest and greatest operating system. So today begins Operation: Red Hat.

My attempt to move to Red Hat Linux.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, imagine a more complicated Windows XP, but without the Windows branding and without the Start Bar. Now imagine that the cost is free, but the quality is good. So good, that computer has an uptime of %99.9999999 percent (this is just a guess). That means that in one year, you would not have access to the computer for 0.031536 seconds.

Now this is not my first attempt at running Linux. This is probably the 3rd or 4th try. But it is the first in which I have a computer dedicated soley to running Linux. With any luck, I will put Linux on my Laptop (my main computer) within a few months and run a dual-boot system. In the finally phase, I will run Linux alone…here goes nothing!
