    Seems the hackers don't go after Linux systems for some reason. They only seem to hate Bill Gates. l've been playing with Linux for about 6mo's and l'm still stuck on the radically simple because Linux anything but simple. More and more people are converting though just because it's safer. lf l didn't have to buy a new printer for Linux l'd switch. the one l got(a canon) is not even 2yrs old and theres's no drivers for the Linux system. I'd stay way from the Acer though their mobo's are junk.
