Me Thinks Linux is ready to TAKE OVER!

Post by sleeperawoke »

Hello from another Canuck! I started using Linux a long time ago but was distracted by windows being slapped into the price of the PC and figuring I might as well use it... BIG MISTAKE! Last year I had the sense to try out several Distros. WOW has the system developed over the years!! I somehow got into MINT and found it really user friendly. I consider myself a Newb since it has been so long that everything has changed. Of course now that ppl are seeing just how unsecure the net is, I am expecting Linux to soar to new heights. Goodbye windows, and mac isnt much better. When thousands of ppl work on developing a community system over the years, it is just a matter of time before it becomes obvious who REALLY runs the show... BRILLIANT work guys. :wink:

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

We became finalized independent in 1982, but became official in 1931 lol. Still have a few ties but nothing much anymore, more for visits and rolling out the red carpet for the royals, and giving them so many white hats from Alberta they hate them now lol.
But were all colonist from one place or another from our ancestors long ago.

This colonial needs to find a step by step guide to ready a new computer (asus ROG8480 I7 3rd gen 8gb cache 16GBRam 128 SSD)
By ready meaning encrypt all files (such as TrueCrypt?) slap on OpenVPN, using Open DNS? Find a Secure VPN server, maybe bye DD WRT router? etc.. CUZ B4 I hook it onto the Net I need to install MINT on it and put Win 8 in the trash then secure the darn thing and keep my F*&*#K ISP from having any CLUE as to who what where I do on the net. Oh and is TOR easy for newbie too?
