OBWW - I use my computer to draw, cutlist, research, price, photoshop,
etc. stuff for wooddorking and even use it to read the Wreck from time
I ask this here because I know there are a bunch of guru types on the
Wreck, and they, being fellow wooddorkers, will not steer me wrong.
I am in the midst of getting a new laptop and that is going remarkably
unwell ( see supra ).
I was wondering, having seen the fat content of Win XP Pro, as
delivered with a 2.4 ghz desktop box that I put in place a few months
ago - and having wiped the drive and put on Win 98 SE in its place -
might I be able to relieve myself of the MShackles entirely and put on
this Linux that I have heard so much about?
I am particularly enamoured of the concept of small footprint and
small overhead. Win XP, in both its Pro and Home variations, is quite
I currently run MS Office 2000, PhotoShop v. 4.0, TurboCad v.5.1,
AutoCad v. 2000, Eudora Pro v. 5.1, Forte Agent v. 1.7, Norton
Utilities v. ?, Norton AntiVirus v. ?.
I must be able to hook into my office network and get on Axapta.
Will I be able to communicate to my MS based brethren, particularly in
regards to Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Access?
I await the common wisdom.
And thank you in advance for its lack of commonness.
