Re: Computer Upgrade
Taking this all down guys. Thanks.
So, what can be done in a transition regarding Excel spreadsheets and Word files transfer? It'll be easy enough to just start from scratch with navigation stuff but impossible to start from scratch with hundreds of Windows-based files accumulated over the years. In communications with other computer users, is there translation ability so that text files sent from Linux can be read by Windows-based recipients and vice versa.
This particular job is new to me but I've been involved with computers since the Commodore, writing my own business programs, DOS, managing networked computer systems at school, etc. so am fairly confident in making things work.
