1.what r the +points linux has over windozzzz??
I use it because i love to customize it to suit my needs to the extent possible( as a beginner u may not think abt customizing)...and because i love the simplicity and stability of my system. No antivirus needed. If you're studying ..u can practice everything like c, c++, perl, python, php, shell, flex, bison, yacc etc etc without explicitly installing each one of them.
few of plus points:
1. u dont have to care abt h/ware drivers if u get linux. buy any bluethooth/usb/tv tuners/ digi cams/sound cards ..and u'll find that most well established distros like suse /debian will support it without u having to do anything! <im not sure if nokia's pc suite is ported for linux...but i connect my nokia phone easily via bluetooth)
2. Hear the same mp3 on linux with the same speaker volume level as u do on windoze ...and ask urself which one u like
3. linux does not crash as freq as a windows box ... even if u shut down the power plug and swith ur (suse) linux machine back on ...the programs u were running will already start up for u on their own
2.which version to install??? i have an amd 2800 1.6ghz0
I'd say Suse 10 or suse 9.3 with packman updates.
3.is it true that some softwares dont run on linux??
Its just that some people creaet software explicitly for windoze. Not all software runs on windows either.
exe files wont run on linux. If you play windows based games n cant live without typical exe utilities ...stay away from linux.
4.procedures to follow plzzzz if possible
search on google "steps to install suse 9.3" or watever
5.i have 3 partitions on my pc i know how to format the c drive containing windozzz but what abt the two other drives ???how to format them?>???
dont format them.. when u install linux ...assign those partitions for linux installation...Linux will format it accordingly. formatting c drive ?? do u totally want to get rid of windows?? good idea!! ..whateve be the drive where u wanna install ... no formatting is needed ...linux it format for u during the install process.
6.can i instal linux on drive c n windoz on drive d ????wont that cause any clash
the rule is: install the dumb os first (courtesy zing)...coz windows does not know how to avoid clashes and boot multiple oses. You got to keep ur windows as it is on C: and install linux on D:. Whereever u install ..just make sure u have windows alreay installed and linux is the next to be installed. that way you dont have clash and ..u can selct what os to boot from the linux loader..that will show up after the bios initilizations
7.any advice + suggestion/??
install it now!!
