In my last post, I talked about giving Vista another try. That didn’t work out so well. I ended up re-installing XP again a few days later. While my scanner did work, the ATI video driver did not.

Over the past ten years or so, I have made several attempts at switching to Linux as my primary OS. Every time I went back to Windows because there was always some application I needed to run or I would end up spending so much time tweaking my Linux install that I didn’t really get to use my PC for anything useful.

It’s time to try again. Not because I don’t like Windows, but because every time I get all my software installed, my machine becomes deathly slow. I’ve been using the Ubuntu Live CD and I have to say I am pretty impressed. We’ll see how it goes after I install it.
