At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.


Linux from the User Perspective
Persistence helps

Why would anyone want to change from Microsoft or Apple to Linux? Isn't Linux the operating system made for servers that work as everything from file servers to Web sites? Isn't Linux hard to set up and use? Why would I want to change and what would I lose?

These are the questions I've debated for the past two months. The advantage I have is that I've been looking at and experimenting with Linux for about four years now.

I thought it was time a "regular user" chime in on the pluses and minuses of setting up and working with Linux on the desktop.

Unlike many people in the field, I don't program or run a software or hardware company. I'm just a middle school computer teacher. My computer experience started in high school, programming in Basic on Apple IIes. During college, graduate school, and course work for my teacher's certification, I used MS-DOS- or Windows 3.11-based computers for just about everything - word processing, spreadsheets, finances, databases, and entertainment. While using the above OSes, I got to enjoy the "quirks" of Windows 3.1 though to 98 SE. Then, as a computer teacher for seventh and eighth graders in southern New Hampshire, I started hearing about this new operating system called Linux, and I was intrigued.

Distributions "Reviewed"
I started messing around with a few distributions like Corel and Turbolinux that I got for free at some conference or for purchasing some long-forgotten piece of hardware. Installing Linux was difficult at best, and I had lot of time and effort invested in the Microsoft world. I was also trying to learn more about Microsoft to keep things running at school. But I did try to run those two Linux distributions on a few old Pentium computers. To say the install was slow is an understatement. I think I even let one machine install over night and saw no change the next morning. Needless to say I was not well versed in the set up of the Linux OS.

So I took a workshop sponsored by New Hampshire Society of Technical Educators on how to install and use Linux. It was great. Not one of the 20 of us in the room could install Linux on the computers provided for us to use.

That led to Plan B. The presenter showed the group various things on his Linux computer on a projection screen and I'm sitting there thinking, "This isn't a great software. I could get a Windows NT machine up and running in about 30 minutes, and fully set up in about another hour. This Linux thing isn't what it's selling itself as."

I'll change my tune later.

A year or two later I needed a laptop for work. I thought the laptop would be a good test bed for Linux, a "sandbox" machine, if I set it up right. I bought a copy of Red Hat 9.0 to install. Luckily I had learned to partition hard drives by then using Windows. I loaded Windows 2000 Pro in one partition and tossed Red Hat 9 on the other one. Installing Red Hat 9.0 was relatively easy. I was actually able to use most of the programs on the machine, but couldn't share information with the Microsoft world I lived in, through a network or floppy disk drive.

I also ran into problems when I wanted to use a wireless card in the machine. After much poking and prodding, I gave up, wiped the drive clean, and did a full Windows install. I figured I was done with Linux for good.

Right.

I heard or read about a different distribution of Linux called MEPIS. After looking at the Web site and paying attention to how to get it to run on laptops, I figured the $10 investment was worth the gamble. I loaded the CD-ROM and booted live to see what the program was like. I found it clean and refreshing to view compared to the distributions I had been using. I used it as a live boot CD for a while, but committed to trying it on the laptop. I liked the easy-to-read install directions. I even understood the whole partitioning thing, but I just let MEPIS take over the laptop's hard drive. After the install I was able to get the built-in 3COM NIC to see my network, but file sharing was a problem. I also tried to use a D-Link wireless card but couldn't get it to work. I discovered that MEPIS, as great a distribution as I thought it was, was a bit over my head.

So I went back to the Microsoft fold again.

Further Efforts
This past summer I decide that I wanted to give Linux one last "serious" shot. I decided that I was going to do a full SuSE Linux 9.1 Pro install on the laptop. I felt that using a fully supported version of a distribution might be better than the free or almost-free distributions I had been trying. I ended up with a very workable laptop, but with issues.

I couldn't see my desktop across either the wired or wireless network in my house. I also had to buy a Cisco Aironet 350 card just to get to use the wireless access point of my Internet connection. But it was working, with some success.

I could do the normal stuff, such as word processing and spreadsheets, and save the documents to a USB pen drive to move between the two machines. But I wanted to see if I could get two SuSE Linux machines seeing and exchanging data on a network.

To add a second Linux computer and retain my Microsoft world involved restructuring my daily desktop. I had two internal hard drives and I wanted to be able to swap between SuSE and Windows 2000 primary drive, while leaving a backup copy of my important files on an internal hard drive. I took a trip to my local CompUSA to get some removable drive carriers and a third hard drive for my desktop with SuSE 9.1 installed. I could see everything locally, but couldn't get to the other computer via the wired or wireless network. Everything I tried failed, or I had to reinstall SuSE because I tinkered with Samba or some network settings.

I stopped using the Linux disk, reset the laptop back to Windows 2000, and began the school year.

I came across Xandros Linux in December of 2004. I had previously heard about and even talked to someone at school about using Xandros in the fall of 2003. But I couldn't get anywhere with the network administrator.

In wanting to try a Linux again at home, I once again installed both SuSE and MEPIS, but ran into the same problems I had before. I was literally scouring the Xandros Linux Web site trying to decide whether or not I was willing to fork over another $80 for a Linux distribution. While comparing the different versions, I found out that I could download and run the "Open Circulation 2.0.1" version of Xandros for $10. After installing it on the laptop, I found that I could download several other programs from Xandros's update site. I was even able to get a Windows 3.1-based grade-book program from my school working properly using Codeweavers' CrossOffice for Xandros for a small Xandros member price. I had no problems viewing my now-growing home network of two desktops and the laptop.

After further experimentation, and after downloading the 3.0.1 version of the Open Circulation Desktop, I did a dual-boot install on my newly built Intel 2.9GHz Celeron D, 1GB RAM desktop that was currently running Windows 2000 Pro. After the install, I could not get the on-board sound card to work, but 24 hours after posting an e-mail to Xandros's tech support, they directed me to the correct Web page to get the sound drivers.

Since then, I haven't looked back at Windows. I'm currently using Linux fully on the two desktops. My laptop has yet to be converted because of work my wife is doing for a client. I have learned, as a computer teacher, that it's not nice to change things on people in the middle of a project, especially their operating system and related programs. Anyway, the Xandros 3.0.1 Desktop doesn't seem to like the Dell Latitude for some reason.

About Joseph Gruce
Joseph M. Gruce III made the change to Linux at his home this past February. He has been exploring that possibility for the past five years. He has been the computer teacher at the Hollis Brookline Middle School in Hollis, NH, for the past seven years, where he teaches how to use Microsoft Windows OS and Office applications, as well as the history of technology. He is also the local troubleshooter for hardware, software, and networking problems in the school. He caught the computer bug in the late 1980s while working on his master's degree and teaching certification.

Mr. Gruce isn't a 'normal' computer user. Most users haven't taught computers for seven years, and most are not interested in spending several years and four or five unsuccessful attempts to get to a point where they can use an alternative system. Until Linux--both its desktop and its core applications--are transparent to a really normal Windows user, it will continue to be better for enthusiasts and server room denizens. I believe it will take at least a couple more years before some mainstream company like Novell can make Linux what the typical user needs.
