Load Linux on your computer, and kiss Microsoft goodbye!
These CD-ROMs contain several companies' Linux distributions. Each can have you Microsoft-free within an hour. And all have nearly the same functionality as Windows.
We offer several popular Linux distributions on CD-ROMs. Each disk has a pretty custom label, and each set comes with a brief description of how to load it, either by booting directly from the CD, or creating boot floppies.
Unlike other Linux CD vendors, we have no gimmicks. (For example: We don't claim that our CDs are "free" except for "shipping & handling".) All prices are postpaid via US Mail, but do not include Pennsylvania sales tax. (Prices are good for US delivery only.)
All distributions are the most current one available as of the date you place your order.
Formally known as "Mandrake", Mandriva is a very nice distribution which is perfect for the new Linux user. It balances ease of installation and setup with power and a full suite of programs. Installs nicely even on laptops. You need at least 64 MBytes of RAM, and a Pentium 300 or better (it won't work on a 486!), although it can be loaded with 32 MBytes of RAM if you are willing to forgo the nice graphical installation program.
Fedora Core (aka Red Hat Linux)
If you purchase these distributions from their publishers, they typically offer 30 - 90 days of eMail support to help you install the distribution. If you are looking for general support for getting Linux up and running, your best bet is to purchase Linux directly from the publisher. (After all, they work hard to produce Linux, and otherwise get nothing when you purchase your disks from us.) Typically, they answer eMails asking for help within 48 hours, and can help you if the distribution won't install on your computer.
Unfortunately, (in my experience) their support leaves a lot to be desired because they don't help you get the programs productively running. If you have a question like, "How do setup my network card to operate behind my corporate firewall?", they will politely decline to answer your question because it is not an "installation question". Luckily, Vorlon Technologies can help here.
We offer personalized support for any computer question. We bill by the hour, but you pay only after we solve your problem, and then you pay only what you think our advice was worth. Please see our page on getting help for more information.
