I have been doing a lot of checking into the linux OS. My question at this point is should I change from Windows. From what I have heard is that Linux is better then windows in some ways not to mention cheaper. I have an older system and have had nothing but problems with XP the entire time I have had it. My biggest concern with Linux is the compatibility. I have netzero for accelorated dial up and the only linux version it seems to be compatible with is Lindows. I also use Yahoo messenger alot and it is compatible with a different kind of Linux. If I can't use netzero then I can't connect to the internet. There aren't alot of other choices for interenet in my area so it is really not an option to change ISPs. Will I beable to use both Netzero and Yahoo even though they are for different versions of Linux. There are so many different kinds of linux and everything I need seems to have downloads for a different linux version but they have versions for linux in general. Can someone please help me?
