The main advantage is that the software does not suffer from virus attacks like windows does.
Many people think it is easier to operate than windows. Plus it can run like the older versions of windows, such as XP.
You can also run have both using something called dual boot.
It is being considered as an operating system more since MS brought out windows 10, especially with the forced updates which crash the system.


The disadvantages is that some Windows software will not run on it, especially some gaming ones.

What keys do I hit to email whats on my screen?

Screen capture using F12 with this free software:
http://download.cnet.com/Screen-Copy/3000-2094_4-10039293.html

This creates a TIFF file by default, but an extra click creates a JPEG file.

Store your screen capture as a file or copy it to the MSWindows desktop clipboard. Then to use your screen capture, paste it into your email from the MSWindows desktop clipboard, or pick up the stored file as an email attachment.

The only drawback is that you have to clean up afterwards by deleting your screen capture JPEG file(s) - unless you just sent your image to/from the clipboard.

Have just been given the Toshiba Hard Drive PX1396U-3T01, number 2978109s. No install instructions, or paperwork. He is now overseas. How do I install the HD, or get a driver?

Your Toshiba PX1396U-3T01 external HDD is USB-attached, so you'll need to acquire a
standard USB cable to accomplish the physical layer attachment. USB cables do not have
the same connector at each end - the system (computer) end has a USB "A" connector (flat-shaped), and the device end (HDD) has a USB "B" connector (square-ish shaped).

There is no software (driver) needed for this external HDD - support for USB-attached external
drives (either HDD or flash drives) is built into WinXP, WinVista and Win7.

IF your version of MSwindows doesn't want to recognize the Toshiba when you plug it in, try
START > Run > then type in "diskmgmt.msc"

then select the command "Rescan disks."

If you're running Mac OS or Linux, repost including your OS (operating system) info.

What are the issues about Linux Operating System

There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

VGA DRIVER FOR ms 6524 ver 1 motherboard NOT INSTALLED NEED FOR MY COMPUTER

Here's the AWARD BIOS for you msi (Micro Star International)
ms 6524 mainboard/motherboard. It comas as an executable .EXE file. Upgrading/reinstalling your motherboard BIOS may solve your VGA "driver" problem, but drivers are
really the province of MSDOS/Windows - motherboards know nothing of drivers, and simply provide a BIOS to interface between the operating system drivers (the OS can be Linux,
or MS windows, or anything).
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/MS-6524.html#/?div=Download

To get the VGA driver for your MSwindows system, access your C:\Windows\drivers directory where you should find the file "vga.sys," which is the generic VGA driver for MSwindows. This driver will be referenced in the installation file Oemsetup.inf, which you will find in the C:\WINDOWS\inf directory - its ASCII, so you can open it up and read it with "notepad," or your favorite editor.

Use this link to determine which Video driver windows is actually using
when it boots (WinXP only):
support.microsoft.com/kb/314854

Use this link to FORCE windows to use the default VGA driver
even when running an unsupported monitor (which I suspect could be the problem you're facing).

I've forgotten my password for Asus Eee PC 4g

One of the advantage of any Linux OS is its tough security. Im afraid you have to reprogram you machine so that you can use it,  . and then maybe later you run a File Recovery software so that you can latter on recover your important files.

Drivers for Linux

I've had to use guttenprint 5 to set up non-supported printers in linux, have you tried that?
I found a fix, though! Simply use the already installed "Canon PIXMA MP150 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.1" driver. It seems to be printing fine. You can copy and fax stand alone still on the unit itself. I guess that we will have to wait for a real driver to take advantage of the onboard scanner. Hope that this helps!
