You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
@Cliff_Forster, I haven't used Xubuntu much, but it also has the Windows 7 style menu, so should be easy enough for a Windows user. I don't use Linux enough to want to learn a lot of real computer stuff. But Linux works and there are many flavors. And its free.
Thanks for the WiFi advice. I was planning to install Linux on an old laptop that will probably need an adapter.
These are so cool. They are like something from the science fiction that I loved as a kid in the 1960s. We are getting closer to making it happen. I joined the Space Shuttle program after the Challenger disaster and stayed until the last flight. I hated that they retired the Orbiters (and me) when we didn’t have anything to replace them. SpaceX is doing great things. Lockheed is proceeding with Orion and I am looking forward to a human mission to Mars. We are explorers and we have to be in space.

Just finished re-reading In the Wet by Nevil Shute after about 20 years. It is better than I remembered. Also, currently reading The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI. It’s an amazing story, but I’m bogged down about half way through - too much detail. I’ll probably pick it up again soon.
Best book in the last year: Stephen King’s 11/22/63
@GnomeQueen, I also listened to Bossypants a while back and loved it. I like her a lot from her SNL days but can’t watch 30 Rock.
