Hi All,

It is that time again to format the hard disk drive on my H-P COMPAQ Presario DV7 Notebook PC and install a new Linux operating system. Hey, if Linux powers the World’s Supercomputers and Wall Street it is good enough for me. LOL!

I have been using Linux as my Microsoft operating system replacement for about 10 years and do not regret it. Oh, have I mentioned that you can get an endless list of free Microsoft or MAC replacement applications / programs? Just download the Linux version of your choice and it will come with a good deal of included software packages that will let you jump right into doing what you normally do every day. It is just that simple, and you can start with all this goodness with one CD.

I have used most of the top tier Linux operating systems (Linux Mint, Ubuntu, et al) and this time picked openSuSE 12.1. openSuSE is the cutting edge version of the commercial product sold by Novell. So, given the breeding and global applications we are in pretty good company running Linux. Yeah, it is that good!

What I did was download the openSUSE 12.1 KDE4 Live CD (ISO) i686 here. KDE4 is my Desktop Manager, and one I now favor versus the other options, among them Gnome. The meaning of “Live CD” is that you can burn the download to a CD, pop it in your CD/DVD drive, boot your system and openSuSE will load. All of this is done without affecting your present OS setup. Play with it and see what you have. You will also have the option of installing it, and openSuSE will recognize the OS you are running, and can save it. Then upon re-boot you have the option of what OS you want to run. So, you have a dual-boot system. I was once tri-booting, but that was just over the edge. Hey, I like to try new things out. Cool!

And here is my shiny new Linux OS Desktop:
