the alternative OS

Posted: July 16, 2006 in linux, work work

tuxthe workstation that was given to me at work had Windows XP (only) installed to it. being a Linux user for more than 5 years already now, I’ve gone a bit uncomfortable in a Windows environment. i do have Windows XP installed in my own computer, but i rarely, rarely use it. i don’t know why I even still keep it. maybe for games, but i am not a gamer. it’s a waste of disk space, i must say. most of the time i just use the space to store files like music and/or video.

so anyway, a month passes and i’ve been working on a Windows environment. then a co-worker, quite a Linux user as well, made a bold move and asked our boss if we (for those who preferred a non-Windows OS) could install Linux on our workstations. well, what do you know, he (our boss) says ok to it and so now i’m using Linux. OpenSUSE 10.1 64-bit to be exact. what a relief. i thought i was gonna be stuck into using an OS which i don’t really prefer to use. i still kept the “other” OS though.. . as an ALTERNATIVE. because who says Linux has to be the alternative?
