What Jim said.

Linux, the Ubuntu version, is free and available here. I've used it for years, and dual boot with Windows only because there is one specific program that is not available in Linux. The rest are all free, including Office, graphic and media applications.



Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?
