Do you want to try LINUX? UpDate #1

Published:

Last Edited: May 1, 2014, 7:49 pm

I want to remind you, that it might be best to use portable freeware whenever possible.

And of course, free is better than paid software if both do exactly the same job.

----------------------------------------------------

There are many versions of the Linux operating system, all that you need to do is use a search engine and type on it

Linux

If you don't know what is an "operating system" nor "Linux" nor a "search engine", then THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

Just forget about it.

---------------------------

For those who feel better using Windows and or who have a not so new computer you can start with either of these two versions of Linux:

ZORIN OS

http://zorin-os.com/free.html

LXLE

http://lxle.net/

http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxle/

I don't like that you need to download LXLE from a torrent of course using a torrent client, if you don't have a torrent client then using a search engine type on it

torrent client freeware

or

torrent client free

torrent client download

Whatever

------------------

If you still want to run some Windows program on Linux you can try a software called

Wine

By the way, don't ask me anything about neither Linux nor about Wine, because right now I don;t know anything about them.

Wine:

If you look for it, you will find a lot more stuff about Wine and Linux.

For a Bit Torrent Client I think that it would be best to use either of these two:

Tixati

http://www.tixati.com/download/tixati-1.96-1.portable.zip

http://netforbeginners.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XK&zTi=1&sdn=netforbeginners&cdn=compute&tm=456&f=00&su=p284.13.342.ip_&tt=3&bt=1&bts=5&zu=http%3A//www.tixati.com/

Or

uTorrent

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/portableapps/uTorrentPortable_3.4.1.30888_online.paf.exe?download

http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/utorrent_portable

------------------------------------------------------------------

But here is a short list of Bit Torrent Clients:
