Teaching an old dog new tricks or how I migrated to Linux

First I detest Microshaft and every day we move toward a remote bootable operating system and leasing software on a temporary basis, this will make the operating system a rental as well.   How they intend to monetize it is how they do it now as you cannot connect to the Internet without a operating system or a web browser. It is not like a old land line phone that all you needed was a handset if you knew what you were doing your could connect directly from a pedestal with a handset.

Linux is FREE if you do not have the expertise you can buy a copy already installed on a flash drive.  If your a bit familiar with CD/DVD burning software most have an option to burn an ISO so download a .ISO  of the version you want to try you do not have to install it you can run it off the CD/DVD drive or off a flash drive I would advise a 32 to 64 GB flash drive in order to install it ou will need a program called NETBOOTIN.  you plug in your flash drive and use NETBOOTIN to format and install your ISO to it.

My opinion on the ones to try are Peach OSI and or Linuxlite both have free programs that can be added through " install remove programs " usually setting up your Internet connection is by placinf your password or numeric password in and it will connect automatically.

I have posted on this before I find it will make a old computer new again fast and flexible I also use versions of PUPPY Linux as it is very small that they can fit on a CD and run all kinds of other linux software but comes packed with media player an office clone etc etc.

I have an emergency computer an old OLD Panasonic toughbook processor is 1.6 GHZ chip runs great on Puppy I like this as I can plug it into a vehicle or run it off a battery w/ a inverter with not a lot of power I can hook up my printer scanner plug in a hone line or a RJ45 to connect to the Net. The Operating system has the software to operate cameras you can plug in a microphone you need a cable to connect a flash drive as the onboard plug is small or recessed so some models will not plug in.if you have a laptop with a CD?DVD you can burn with Linux as it comes with burning software.

AS I stated you can download Linux for free burn the ISO to a DVD and tart it from boot up  run it and if you get stuck turn it off and start your microshaft system up without installing it to your hard drive.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
