For a long time, I've wanted to configure my laptop for a duel boot of Windows and Linux. I have little Linux experience so I've been hesitant to install. I was also afraid I might mess up my laptop and end up losing all sorts of data. Luckily, last month I received a new T60p laptop. With no data and just the standard IBM image, I decided now was the time to setup the duel boot.
After about 3 hours, I had Windows XP and Linux Red Hat installed and ready to take the plunge with the . It took me a day or two to remember or lookup some of the common commands and navigation around Linux. I was also excited to see all of my favorite IBM software applications were supported on Linux. I'm still learning but enjoy an alternative OS to explore the freedom of open source.
By the way, this is my first blog entry using the Domino 7.0.2 blog template and I am using Lotus Notes on Linux.
